Why D.P. Dough
It's Easy. Owning a D.P. Dough is hard work, but it isn't rocket science. Our calzones are the focus of the business and the reason that D.P. Dough is a dorm-hold name across college campuses. During your initial training, we teach you how to be a world-class calzone maker, and more importantly, a smart restaurant owner, by using our proven system.
It's Delicious. We don't mean to brag, but our calzones are amazing. We use the best ingredients to make the best calzones. We give our customers a ton of options without confusing them. People drive hours to have our calzones. Our delivery drivers get hugs from students on campus. Seriously. It's that good.
It's Unique. While we often get thrown into the pizza category, we are The Pizza Alternative®. That means that we don't sell pizza. Since we don't have to compete with the very crowded pizza market, we have a competitive advantage over pizza places. We like pizza. It just has nothing to do with us. There are a few calzone imposters out there. But we are The Original Calzone Company®. (See. We trademarked it.)
It's Fun. Most D.P. Dough restaurants are located near colleges or universities. There is an excitement in the air in these locations. Our owners get to make people happy.
It's Affordable. We want D.P. Dough franchisees to be able to see a financial reward for their efforts. Our royalty rate, advertising fee, and initial franchise fee are among the lowest in the restaurant industry. Shop around and see for yourself!
