Support that works
Panago offers a 30-year proven operations system that guides the day-to-day running of your store. Fine-tuned but also flexible, the system reflects the unique needs of your trade area. Before, during and after your store opens, we’re there with leadership and support, helping franchisees achieve their fullest potential.
5 weeks to start
Our operations support begins with an intensive five-week training program of four weeks of hands-on, in-store training, covering all aspects of running your own Panago Pizza business, followed by one-week of management training sessions. Training is an ongoing process and Panago staff are always ready to support continuous learning and development that inspires every step of the way.
A personal business manager
Your Business Development Manager (BDM) can help navigate every business challenge you may encounter. Experienced, helpful and fully committed to your Panago’s success, your BDM is there as a coach and guide for business planning, local/community marketing efforts and training. These BDM’s are at the core of our operational systems and are experts in understanding how to build a successful Panago.
Take a tour
Our fresh approach to pizza is equaled only by our fresh approach to store design. Sophisticated, open and contemporary, a Panago store brings the brand to life. Maintaining a consistent look and feel in every store provides a powerful franchise-building tool that drives your business.
SELECTING YOUR LOCATION
Our Development Department will work with you to select from approved locations in our targeted areas. Our search includes insights on territory demographics and competition spreads as well as key economic indicators and future growth trends. Our research is there to compliment your own insights about whether a location is right for you.
BUILDING YOUR STORE
From store construction to the final interior touches, our Construction Team will coordinate all aspects of your store build. From site-specific architectural drawings to contractors, costs and timelines, we’ll help you get from concept to opening.
Panago has opened non-traditional locations to expose even more customers to the brand. Store design and operational flow has been adapted specifically to fit each location. Current examples include:
• NAIT (Northern Alberta Institute of Technology) student cafeteria service counter
• Dana Food Service partnership, a small cafeteria-style, grab-and-go location at the Toyota plant in Cambridge, Ontario
• Aramark, one of Canada’s leading food service companies features a kiosk at the Manulife Centre in downtown Toronto
• A highway service station in Clairmont, BC
A taste for innovation
Through 30 years of innovation, Panago has developed recipe pizzas that reflect consumer trends. Not limited to Italian classics, Panago has ventured to new pizza frontiers, challenging norms and exciting Canadian taste buds across the country.
