About Stoner’s Pizza
Founded in 2013, Stoner’s Pizza Joint was purchased by HospitalityX, a holding company with a current brand roster that includes Charbar Co., Whiskey Room, ¡Holy Tequila! and Healthy Habit. Stoner’s Pizza Joint’s franchising program launched in 2018 with the goal of growing the brand’s footprint to 100 locations by 2023.
Since the launch, Stoner’s has continued to identify the Southeast region as a key market for expansion. The company just celebrated the grand opening of their restaurant prototype in Columbia, South Carolina. The company also recently signed a franchise agreement in Florida to develop two new restaurants. Additionally, the company will be opening a new restaurant in Nacogdoches, Texas with franchisee the DhaMir Group, in early Q1.
Stoner’s Pizza Joint is currently seeking qualified franchisees to help the brand grow nationwide in college town markets, with a focus on the Southeast region.
Prospective franchisees should have a minimum net worth of $250,000. According to Stoner’s, the ideal candidate is a proven multi-unit operator in the restaurant industry and has a strong knowledge of their market.
