A Closer Look at Posh Tomato
Founded by three brothers in Brooklyn, Posh Tomato has since served up popular, cracker thin-crust pizzas to thousands of New Yorkers. Their brick oven pizza is topped with hand-pulled mozzarella cheese, made-from-scratch sauce and a line of fresh toppings. They see out wild and wonderful combinations that surprise and delight customers.
Posh Tomato has launched a franchise program to expand their concept across the Northeast U.S. They opened up their first franchise shop outside of New York in April in West Hartford, Conn. The first two franchise locations operate in the Brooklyn communities Midwood and Gravesend. An additional restaurant is set to open in New Jersey later this year.
How It Looks as a Franchise
Post Tomato is an open concept, with natural wood and other raw materials to keep the design simple, yet modernizes the traditional, vintage pizzeria. The company has partnered with Triple Five Worldwide, which develops, owns and operates an extensive portfolio of top retail and entertainment complexes worldwide. Through the partnership, it’s possible for franchisees to build in locations such as Mall of America in Minneapolis, Minn. and American Dream in Metropolitan New York.
Posh Tomato is committed to providing intensive classroom and hands-on training to franchisees and managers. The franchisee training, which takes 14 days, includes but is not limited to: aspects of store management, all aspects of product preparation and serving, merchandising, local advertising and promotion, public relations, administration of bonus or reward points program, all staffing and human resource issues, the point of sale system and franchisee accounting and reporting.
The total investment to open a Posh Tomato franchise ranges from $170,000-$390,000, which includes the initial franchise fee and startup costs. The brand is currently seeking franchise partners focused on multi-unit development.
