Regional Suggestions

There are a couple savvy approaches you can use to come up with a unique pizza name using a region. First, let’s say you’ve selected Chicago-Style for your menu. There are all sorts of references you could make to identify this type of pizza like “The Bean Pizza” referencing a famous landmark in the city that locals will understand. By calling out regional characteristics or landmarks you naturally make the style of pizzeria unique.

You don’t need to pull ideas from places that are known for their specific style of pizza, however. You can also pull ideas from cities, counties or landmarks near you too. One good example is Lisa’s Pizzeria that serve’s “Wisconsin Style” pizza with a cracker-thin crust. No matter where you live, you could come up with a distinct style that matches the tastes and food of the area.

Market Analysis

pizza average ticket

Increase in average ticket sizes for pizza chains.

The future looks bright for the pizza industry as a whole. The market research company Technomic reports 83% of consumers eat pizza at least one time per month. That’s a lot of market share to grab hold of.

But while there’s strong consumer demand, it doesn’t mean opening a new joint will be without challenges. This is an industry wrought with major competition and big chains with serious marketing budgets. If you want to stand out, you’re going to need a good overall strategy and business plan to break through in your market. Here are a few basic ways to accomplish this goal:

Differentiated Product: Making a pretty good pizza just isn’t going to cut it any longer. You’ve got to find a way to differentiate yourself from everyone else in your town that folks already know about. One approach is to find unique ways to make your crust. Maybe you could be the first to offer cauliflower pizza crust or a tortilla crust in the city. You could also find unique toppings that aren’t available elsewhere. Before you open any business, you need to understand what makes your product different.

Focus on Delivery: Takeout and delivery represents the biggest amount of spend in the pizza industry according to industry reports. Dine in is a nice option to have, but your bread and butter will be customers that eat at home. Make sure you’re active on food delivery apps like GrubHub, especially in the early days of the business. You can build your business on the back of new delivery platforms that other local business owners might not want to deal with because of fees.

Emphasis on Marketing: There are all sorts of ways you can stand out from local pizza shops with a little bit of marketing creativity. Most establishes places won’t put much effort or emphasis on getting attention through social media. You can utilize the cheap advertising on these platforms while it lasts to get recognized in your local community.
