Stoner's Pizza Joint, a quick-service pizza franchise, announced Wednesday that it would expand its footprint via a three-unit expansion with existing South Florida franchisee, John Stetson. This new partnership supports Stoner's Pizza Joint's plans to further develop the Georgia Market. The first new Georgia location, which opened Wednesday, is located at 1080 GA- Highway 96, in Warner Robins, Georgia, and will be owned by Stoner's Pizza Joint franchisee John Stetson.
"Since opening my first Stoner's in Fort Lauderdale, I have been impressed with the consumer's response to the product and branding," said Stetson. "The brand appeals to a wide audience of customers who enjoy fresh, high-quality food at an affordable price. I am thrilled to be opening my fourth location today in Warner Robins and excited for two more in the coming weeks. I look forward to a continued partnership with Stoners Pizza Joint as it has proved a strong investment opportunity."
Stoner's Pizza Joint is a delivery and takeout focused concept featuring fresh, high-quality food 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, strombolis, sandwiches, hickory-smoked chicken wings made daily in-house, freshly prepared salads, and freshly baked desserts.
"2020 is going to be an exciting year for Stoner's Pizza Joint with the acceleration of our franchise program and strategic growth with strong multi-unit operators. It's been a wonderful journey with John, introducing the brand to Florida and the new growth plans for the Georgia market is no exception," said Nick Bergelt, chief concept officer of Stoner's Pizza Joint. "We're extremely excited to bring Stoner's to this area with our new branding and customer experience. Georgia is a prime market, and we look forward to propelling our brand's presence further in the state and expanding into new markets."
