Pizza Factory, a West Coast pizza chain, has signed a franchise agreement to bring a restaurant to Paradise, California, according to a press release.

The town is rebuilding following wildfires.

The location will be owned by father-and-son team Barry and Bartev Avakian, who hope the restaurant will serve as a beacon of hope for the community.

“I used to frequent Pizza Factory as a child in Idaho, and I loved the wholesome nature of the brand,” Bartev Avakian said in the release. “Having a background working at pizza establishments along with my nostalgic appreciation for Pizza Factory, joining the brand was a no brainer. Operating my own business has been one of the most fulfilling phases of my life as I can directly see the positive impact had on the people I encounter each day. Having grown up in Paradise and witnessing the aftermath of recent wildfires has broken my heart, and I want our restaurant to help the town recover by providing a warm, friendly environment for families to share a meal.”

The Avakians are experienced retail operators and longtime fans of Pizza Factory. Bartev Avakian said he frequented the chain as a child in Idaho and was drawn to its “wholesome nature.”

Pizza Factory, known for its hand-tossed pizzas, pastas, wings, and other menu items, has been expanding its footprint. The company recently ranked 373 on Entrepreneur Magazine’s Franchise 500 list, up from 423 in 2023.

“We’ve grown a great deal thanks to our tight-knit bonds with our franchisees, and we are thrilled to see Barry and Bartev join the brand,” Mary Jane Riva, CEO of Pizza Factory, said in the release. “They are a fantastic addition and we eagerly anticipate their location opening as they begin their journey in Paradise.”

Pizza Factory offers various restaurant formats, including family-friendly dine-in options with arcades and banquet rooms, as well as fast-casual and express models. The company is actively seeking new franchisees nationwide.
