We Are Tennessee’s Leading Pizza Franchise Restaurant

Owner Bob Swartz ran the original Sir Pizza (called Pizza King) in Muncie, IN, for years with his family before incorporating in 1965 under the name Sir Pizza. Seeing the tremendous growth in the area, Robert Fortner bought the rights for the state of Tennessee and in 1965 opened our first location in the state, in 1966 as well as the first Sir Pizza commissary, Fortner Foods — where all of our ingredients are made and delivered to all our restaurants. Since that time, the popularity of our pizzas and restaurants has grown. Sir Pizza International now boasts over 200 stores in operation in the United States and abroad. Sir Pizza has been featured on Pizza Today’s Top 20 list of best 200 franchises. The outlook is excellent, as people continue to display an unquenchable appetite for our delicious signature pizzas.

Grow with us

After an initial interview and assessment of qualification, we’ll take you on a personal tour of our commissary and help you determine the costs involved for acquiring needed equipment, location remodel costs, and other aspects of opening a franchise.
