Noble Roman's Inc. has signed two new franchise agreements in the last three weeks, bringing the total number of Take-n-Bake (TNB) units open or in development to 11. Eight units are currently under development or construction, expected to open during the first half of 2013.
In addition, in the first six weeks of 2013, Noble Roman's has continued to expand the number of grocery stores offering Noble Roman's Take-n-Bake pizza. To date, 1,445 stores offer the option. The company has been steadily expanding its grocery network in response to growing interest from grocery chains.
"Take-n-bake is the fastest growing segment of the pizza industry," said Paul Mobley, chairman and CEO, Noble Roman's Inc. "And Noble Roman's is at the forefront of this trend, methodically increasing our presence in grocery stores around the country and growing our stand-alone TNB franchises. We continue to grow our pipeline of franchise prospects for the stand-alone take-n-bake concept, and expect to have several others under development by mid-year. We are approaching 1,500 grocery stores carrying our TNB product, and expect to add to our grocery network steadily in the coming quarters."
