Franchise Info

We have 13 locations, throughout the Charlotte, NC metropolitan area, Washington, DC, and New York, NY, each powered by an energetic team of hard-workers filling up our diners with New York-Style pizza by the slice, award winning wings, fresh salads and crave-able sandwiches. Our pizza is real- made with the finest mozzarella, vine-ripened tomatoes and the highest-quality fresh ingredients, and our retro, garage-themed restaurants not only provide a fun, and relaxing dining atmosphere, but they are also affordable to build.


The Opportunity

After years of hearing “I wish there was a FUEL near me“ and “are you selling franchises?”, we’ve decided that now is the time to spread the love of FUEL! We’re interested in speaking with individuals who are highly motivated, engaging, and as passionate about serving real pizza as we are. Does that sound like you?


Owning a Fuel Pizza Franchise will allow franchisees the freedom of working for oneself. A lifestyle change much different than the day-to-day grind of the corporate world or that 9 to 5 routine. Franchising puts you in business for yourself, not by yourself.

Fuel Pizza Franchisees experience living the dream of working for yourself, making financial decisions, developing people, and growing a single store into 3, 4, 5 or 10. Franchisor support can mean the difference between success and failure.
