About Unique Pizza and Subs Corporation, a Delaware Corporation

Since the beginning of its development stages back in 1991, Unique Pizza and Subs clearly has separated themselves from the other major pizza franchises. To succeed where other major franchises cannot, a pizza shop needs to have these key elements: a high quality and consistently made product (all of their recipes were designed to have the quality of a “mom and pop” pizza shop with the consistency of a major franchise), good, professional and friendly customer service (UPZS is the only publicly traded pizza franchise that will have all of its location’s orders routed to their professionally-staffed Customer Response Center), and an owner that lives, works and pays taxes in that small market (all of the conversions of independent pizza shops into Unique Pizza and Subs will retain the same local ownership).
