Stoner's Pizza Joint is a delivery and takeout focused concept featuring fresh, high-quality ingredients, prepared in-house daily with minimal production time, including proprietary recipes for the pizza dough, sauce and cheese blend. Menu items include a variety of specialty pizzas, calzones, stromboli's, sandwiches, hickory-smoked chicken wings made daily in-house, freshly prepared salads and freshly baked desserts.

Founded in 2013, Stoner's Pizza Joint launched its franchising program in late 2018 along with fresh new branding and a business model that has proven resilient to massive changes sweeping the food industry. 

Stoner's Pizza Joint is currently seeking qualified franchisees to help the brand grow nationwide in college town markets, with a focus on the Southeast region. Prospective franchisees should have a minimum net worth of $250,000. The ideal candidate is a proven, multi-unit operator in the restaurant industry and has a strong knowledge of their market.
