Jet’s Pizza Lands, Tampa (now open)

TAMPA, Fla., March 6, 2016 – Fasten your seat belts, Tampa! Jet’s Pizza is coming in for a landing. Tampa’s first Jet’s Pizza will open by mid-May at 14624 N. Dale Mabry Hwy.

Jet’s, a Michigan-based chain with a fanatical following, has built its reputation on its signature square, Detroit-style, deep dish pizza with a crunchy crust. Jet’s pizza dough, sauce and vegetables are prepared fresh daily at each store. Hand tossed round and New York-style thin crust pizzas are also available along with salads, subs, wings, Jet’s Bread® and Jet’s Boats® for carry out or delivery.

The franchise location will be locally owned and operated by Eddie Martin, who grew up working at his family’s restaurants in Michigan and relocated to Tampa to open his first Jet’s franchise.

“I’m excited to bring Jet’s outstanding product to Tampa. It’s a great city to own a business. The demographics are very dense. And Tampa has a lot of permanent residents compared to many other cities in Florida,” said Martin.

Martin explains that he chose to open a Jet’s Pizza franchise because of the company’s outstanding product. “It’s a fast-growing brand. Their concept and systems in place are top notch,” said Martin.

The 1600 square foot store is located in the Village French Quarter, south of Erlich on the west side of N. Dale Mabry. The store will offer both carryout and counter service with limited indoor and outdoor seating.

Martin is currently assembling a team of 25 to 30 part time employees to work in the store and as delivery drivers.

Jet’s Pizza is one of the most rapidly expanding pizza franchises in the country. Since its founding in 1978, Jet’s has grown to more than 350 stores in 20 states.

The company ranked 12th in Pizza Today’s 2015 list of the top 100 pizza companies in the U.S. by gross sales. Consumer Reports subscribers ranked Jet’s Pizza second in overall satisfaction among all national brands tested in a survey published in August 2014.
