Franchise Opportunities

Want to be the owner of your own Solorzano's Pizzeria Franchise? Here's how...
  • First take the time to read and understand everything that is in this Franchise Opportunity Package.
  • Fill out the Application and everything else we asked for, including the Financial application* then submit all paperwork to:

    Solorzano's Pizzeria Siesta Key
    Att: Franchise Department
    215 Avenida Madera
    Siesta Key FL 34242
  • If the application is approved we will schedule a phone meeting on a date that works for both parties.
  • Before the phone meeting a Franchise Disclosure Form will be given to protect our secrets and recipes.
  • If everything goes well with the phone meeting we will then schedule a face to face meeting at one of our locations, to give you a run down of the Solorzano's Pizzeria Operation. We will see how you make pizza, if you have any experience in making pizza, and we will also be able to determine if this is something that would even work out. We don't just give out Franchise Opportunities to anyone, we have a certain criteria that they must meet (don't forget at the end of the day this is our families name, history, and recipes passed down from many generations).
  • If all goes well and we approve you, then the process of opening your first Solorzano's Pizzeria will begin!
* An application for each person/member of your franchise group is required to move forward (Including the managing operating partner). Prior food experience is preferred.

Franchisee Qualifications

It's not just about the money, we want every business with our name on it to succeed. That's why WE don't just except anybody, and WE decide who meets the criteria.
Personal Commitment To The Business Is Very Important
The food business is not for everyone, just because you like food does not mean you can own your own pizzeria or restaurant. Hard work, dedication, long hours, and ruff times is what every restaurant owner understands. With all that, the right recipes, and knowledge is what makes a business a successful and profitable one. You must also have people skills, and understand that the customer is always right. By going above and beyond to please your customer, is what keeps the doors open and the money coming in.
