US-based franchise Stoner’s Pizza Joint has entered a development agreement with DhaMir Group to open six locations in Texas.
The agreement is part of the restaurant chain’s plans to expand its footprint by opening 100 locations over the next five years. The company began franchising efforts in July this year.
In late October, Stoner’s Pizza Joint will open the first of its initial six locations at 2013 North Street in Nacogdoches, Texas. DhaMir Group will own and operate the store.
DhaMir Group franchisee Hafeez Dhanani said: “After visiting Stoner’s Pizza Joint for the first time last year, we were both impressed with the quality and taste of the food, in addition to the strategic changes the new owners are implementing to enhance the brand and make it a strong investment opportunity.
“The brand appeals to a wide audience, in particular those who are cost-conscious but crave convenient and fresh-quality food.
“We knew this was an incredible business opportunity and we look forward to continuing our expansion with the brand.”
Stoner’s Pizza Joint is currently looking for additional franchisees in areas across the US.
Established in 2013, Stoner’s Pizza Joint currently owns and operates proprietary restaurant concepts such as Charbar Company and Holy Tequila! in South Carolina.
The restaurant chain also operates 14 own-branded locations in four states, including six corporate locations across Georgia and South Carolina. It offers a range of menu choices such as speciality pizzas, calzones, strombolis, hickory-smoked chicken wings, salads and chocolate chip cookies.
