Bob Swartz worked in his mom and dad's pizza place called PIZZA KING, located in Munice, Indiana. With an enginneering degree and a passion for details, Bob was able to help his mom and dad develop a cup system that was easy to follow and produced quality results on a consistent basis. The location was expanded five times. They recieved numerous requests from people to buy their recipes, systems, and techniques. Instead of selling them, the Swartzes decided to franchise their operation under the name of SIR PIZZA, which was incorporated in 1965, and has continued to grow ever since.

SIR PIZZA INTERNATIONAL now boats over 200 stores in operation in the United States, and abroad. In 1992 SIR PIZZA broke into the top twenty list of Pizza Today's best 200 franchises. The outlook is excellent as people in general continue to display an unquenchable appetite for pizza.

Seeing the tremendous growth of the PIZZA KING organization( the forerunner of SIR PIZZA INTERNATIONAL) in Indiana, Robert Fortner bought the rights for the state of Tennessee. He moved his family from Indiana to Tennessee in 1966, and in December of that year he opened the first SIR PIZZA and commissary in Murfreesboro. Experiencing modest growth winthin the family and limited partnerships, SIR PIZZA began to expand into other towns in Middle Tennessee. This warranted the construction of a USDA plant known as Fortner Foods( the SIR PIZZA commissary), which is located at 830 Old Salem Road, in Murfreesboro, Tennessee. In his lieu of retirement, Robert Fortner handed SIR PIZZA OF TENNESSEE down to his daughter and two sons.

The new generation of owners is very growth oriented and feels that the future SIR PIZZA OF TENNESSEE is in franchising. They take a very meticulous approach to the sale of franchises, and are "very cautious" about the poeple that they sell them to. SIR PIZZA FRANCHISE Inc has an excellent future, and our long range goal is to have a SIR PIZZA in every town throughout the State of Tennessee that will support it and give our licensee's a viable return on their investment...under the SIR PIZZA FRANCHISE INC. program.

If you like the sound of what we have told you, we suggest that you take the next step and call Rod Fortner (615) 293-9921 to discuss the Sir Pizza opportunity.

If you are qualified, we will contact you for a personal interview, and one of the owners will take you on a tour of the SIR PIZZA commissary (Fortner Foods) in Murfreesboro, Tennessee.

The cost of a SIR PIZZA retail store varies with the size of the store and the amount of remodling that it requires. Another factor will be how much new and used equipment will be needed for your location. We will be happy to help you determine the cost of your location.
