PITTSBURGH, PA / CRWEPRESSRELEASE / August 20, 2015 / Unique Pizza and Subs Corporation (OTC Markets Groups Inc.: OTCMKTS:UPZS-News), a Delaware Corporation, is pleased to announce it has signed an Master Franchise Agreement with Unique Worldwide, LLC for Southern California. The region the Master Franchise Agreement encompasses is: the Northern Border inclusive of, San Luis Obispo, Kern and San Bernardino counties to the Southern Border of California. The terms of the agreement require Unique Worldwide LLC to open and develop a minimum of 38 company and or franchised locations within their territory over the next 10 years.
James Vowler, President & CEO of Unique Pizza and Subs Corporation, said We have many loyal shareholders and customers in the Southern California area and we are quite excited that they have chosen this area for their first development. We are pleased to be working with the perfect group to launch our first Unique Pizza Brew House and custom Unique Craft Beers within their territory.
President of Unique Worldwide LLC, Kevin Serrano, said In early 2005, I had a very fortuitous meeting with Jim Vowler CEO and Founder of Unique Pizza and Subs. My mom, Sandy Dorian had heard about Unique Pizza through a multitude of investors. The very thing that stood out to my mother at the time was that the company seemed poised to create its very “unique” franchising model over the next few years and they wanted to insure that their branding and creative concept wasn’t washed out amongst all the other start-up pizza franchises. The creativeness and conceptual control also stood out amongst the masses and that was the very thing that intrigued me to begin researching the infrastructure of such a dynamic and creative franchise model. I was pleasantly surprised to learn that the CEO and Founder Jim Vowler was readily available to answer my questions over the phone and furthermore made time while he was California to meet with my family and explain his vision for what would eventually become a pizza conglomerate that offered the consumer a “Mom and Pop” quality to a national pizza franchise model. Now we all know that there are pizza shops that dot every corner, but it was what was said in this fortuitous meeting and Jim Vowler’s vision, that lead me to really take notice of what a great and “unique” opportunity that this would provide for my family. That year following we were flown out to Pittsburgh to get better acquainted with the business model and to see firsthand the day to day operations of such a prospective franchise. I must tell you that my Mom and I fell in love with the quality and taste of each and every menu item. “I mean to tell you, who would ever think that pizza could ever taste as good, I mean the quality of each topping and the dough…”my oh my the dough” had such a taste that blended the sauce and toppings together in a sweet science that was rivaled by none”.. So soon after, my Mom, Sandy Dorian decided to become one of the largest shareholders/investors, as she felt that this would be something that would not only provide for her in retirement but, allow for me to be a part of something “absolute in a world of no absolutes”. We as a family, have had the pleasure of watching Jim Vowler and his Unique Pizza Corp grow and build slowly, brick by brick, step by step, to insure that the foundation is strong. We as a family have waited for many years to not only hold stock in such a great company but, to now embark on the greatest of endeavors of building franchises and to also work hand in hand with Unique Pizza on building that creative vision that was presented in that early 2005 meeting. I am proud to now, say patience and persistence is definitely a virtue and that vision and perseverance definitely pays off, as we have started negotiations to bring the very first of many Unique Pizza franchises to California and more importantly to our hometown of Murrieta, CA.
About the Company:
Since the beginning of its development stages back in 1991 Unique Pizza and Subs clearly has separated themselves from the other major pizza franchises. They needed to have more than just the best product in the industry; they needed a way to grow rapidly in any market. They noticed all the major pizza franchises were predominately located in only highly populated A markets, leaving a tremendously large pizza eating population only serviced by independent pizza shops. Two of the main reasons the major pizza franchises do not locate in smaller B markets is because of their inferior quality of their product compared to the local independents and their corporate ownership is not usually welcomed. To succeed in a smaller market, a pizza shop needs to have these key elements: a high quality and consistently made product (all of their recipes were designed to have the quality of a “mom and pop” pizza shop with the consistency of a major franchise) and an owner that lives, works and pays taxes in that small market (all of the conversions of independent pizza shops into Unique Pizza and Subs retain the same local ownership).
