Pizza Fusion announced the launch of its new Franchise Development Agent Program. The new program enables entrepreneurs to purchase exclusive territories across the country as the chain continues to expand nationally. The Franchise Development Agent program extends Pizza Fusion revenue streams, such as royalties and franchise fees, to Development Agents responsible for building designated territories and providing on-going support to all franchisees within their territory.

“The Development Agent program is designed for business savvy individuals with the ability to not just sell franchises, but provide on-going business and operational support to franchisees,” says Mark Begelman, CEO of Pizza Fusion. “Qualified candidates will have the opportunity to build and manage an exclusive Pizza Fusion territory. This is a lucrative opportunity for entrepreneurs looking to capitalize on the Pizza Fusion brand and the growing organic and pizza sectors.”

Pizza Fusion built the program alongside board member Larry Feldman, who pioneered the system as one of the country’s leading Franchise Development Agents. Today, Feldman manages over 1,000 Subway franchises within his territory.

“Pizza Fusion’s Development Agent program is designed with a bigger picture in mind,” Feldman says. “Development Agents must not only possess operational expertise, but extensive business knowledge. Qualified Development Agents have the skill set to secure funding for franchisees, select site locations, negotiate lease contracts, understand Pizza Fusion’s design requirements, and provide on-going marketing support, among other responsibilities.”

Development Agents will go through an advanced training curriculum at Pizza Fusion’s headquarters in Fort Lauderdale, Florida to ensure they’re equipped with the necessary knowledge and expertise for building their franchise territory. Pizza Fusion has 22 locations open in 11 states with more in development nationwide and abroad.
