Atlanta, Georgia, January 13, 2015 - Atlanta, Georgia based Sid’s Pizza & Grill Managing Member Stan Kurnett announced today the company is launching a national franchise program.

Sid’s Pizza offers authentic Sicilian pizza, handmade from scratch and stone baked, in traditional and thin crust styles in a laid-back, vintage California surfer atmosphere. The menu also includes wings, oven baked subs, burgers and salads.

Some of Sid’s specialty pizzas, such as the Buffalo Billabong and Haole, have achieved a virtual cult-like following. In the restaurant’s over ten-year history, Sid’s Pizza has earned accolades ranging from being voted Best Pizza on the Northside by readers of the Atlanta Constitution/Journal, Editor’s Choice for Best Pizza on the Northside by Points North Magazine and Atlanta’s Best Kept Secret by radio station DaveFM. The restaurant offers dine-in, take-out, delivery and catering options.

Sid’s Pizza has developed the procedures to produce a high volume of superior-quality pizza from a smaller space with relatively low food and labor costs. With the restaurant’s operating system and oven, a location can turn out over 100 large pizzas an hour.

Said Stan Kurnett, “I’m truly not interested in being the biggest – just the best. I’m looking for people who share our passion for serving better food.

What really drives me is when a first time customer calls me over and says, ‘This is the best pizza I’ve ever had.’ That reaction is what makes the hard work worthwhile.”

Continued Kurnett, “As a franchise company, Sid’s Pizza intends to build the same strong relationships with our Franchise Owners as we have been able to forge with our customers and employees. We promise to respect Sid’s Pizza Franchise Owners and to value their contributions to our mutual success.”

Steve Raines, President of National Franchise Associates, one of the nation’s leading franchising consulting and development firms, helped create the Sid’s Pizza franchise system.

Said Raines, “I have to admit I’m a big fan of Sid’s Pizza. I’m really impressed with the food. Beyond that, I’m even more impressed with the approach to franchising taken by Stan and his management team.

They are dedicated, they are hardworking and they are devoted to long-range thinking where quality is the rule in everything they do.

Most importantly, they are committed to helping Sid’s Pizza Franchise Owners succeed. Sid’s Pizza has taken into account the foundation and support their Franchise Owners will need to achieve their goals.

They have developed the systems and procedures necessary to teach others how to produce top quality food reliably and to maximize their sales and profits.”
