Toppers Pizza in GazetteXtra

We were featured in GazetteXtra. Toppers Pizza has seen incredible success of late, especially in their home state of Wisconsin where they are essentially sold out of room to expand. The brand now sees itself in the midst of a major national expansion with plans to soon take on the big national pizza chains.

In a recent interview with Neil Johnson of the Janesville GazetteXtra, Toppers President Scott Gittrich and Mark Cairns, Toppers' director of franchise development discussed how the brand’s daring and creative take on pizza has set them up for big-time success both locally and nation-wide.

Toppers is looking to hit 700 stores by 2025, and plans to achieve that goal by targeting multi-unit franchisees and groups.

On the brand’s commitment to the Toppers way, Gittrich was quoted: “We're still doing what we've always done. Topping off pizza the way people want it, not going with the boring, chain-pizza stuff that people are just stuck with.”
