Jeffrey H. Wolf quoted in article “What’s the slice? Why Phoenix is in the midst of a pizza boom”08/19/16
Below is an excerpt:
A majority of the pizza concepts that have been opening in Phoenix — Mod Pizza, Marco's Pizza, Pizza Me, Papa Murphy's — have been doing so through franchising, thanks to the improving business and real estate environment post-recession.
"Franchising as a business model has moved past the recession in terms of the availability of financing for both franchisors and small business owners," said Jeff Wolf, partner at Quarles & Brady LLP, which handles franchise litigation. "There was a point in time where franchising was slow to none because of the lack of financing. I don’t know how unique it is to Phoenix, but it certainly is something that’s triggering a lot of franchise sales."
