Round Table Pizza has announced it will be evaluating cities and prospective partners in China during the next two weeks for expansion into Asia. The leading California-based pizza brand has received multiple inquiries for master licenses there and is beginning to set up meetings with the prospective partners.
"International demand is growing as entrepreneurs recognize the value in the Round Table Pizza brand," said Round Table Pizza president Rob McCourt. "Although currently there are other American pizza concepts operating in China, consumers there are now asking for higher quality products that the typical chains can't provide."
Founded in California's San Francisco Bay Area, Round Table Pizza has prospered as the market share leader. Of the company's 500 restaurants, 75 percent are owned and operated by franchisees.
