    Papa Murphy’s Pizza is advertising heavily in NC looking for suckers franchisees. Their gimmick is that they don’t bake the pizza; the customer takes it home and bakes it in her oven. They also don’t deliver.

    It seems to me that a potential customer would probably drive by a couple of grocery stores on the way to the pizzeria. Last time I checked, every grocery store in the universe carries frozen pizza.

    So what, exactly, does Papa Murphy’s bring to the table? This Take ‘N’ Bake pizza seems like an idea about 50 years too late.

    UPDTAE: For only $200-$350k you can be the next sucker franchisee. Sign me up!

    Papa Murphy’s is way better than frozen pizza. I’m glad we have one nearby, but I’d never start a franchise (it seems like way too much to pay for a job).

    I have to say that Papa Murphy’s is really yummy. Way better than frozen, or even grocery store take and bake. Plus, the family size is GIGANTIC!
