Papa Murphy’s, a business based in Vancouver, Washington, United States, is a take-and-bake pizza company. It began in 1995 as the merger of two take-and-bake pizza companies: Papa Aldo’s Pizza and Murphy’s Pizza . The company and its franchisees operate more than 1,300 outlets in the United States and Canada. Papa Murphy’s is the fifth-largest pizza chain in the United States.
Orders are available by walk-in, order online, or call-in. Some stores have a drive-thru window where customers can pick up call-in orders. Unlike regular pizza establishments, the pizza is made at the store but is not baked there. Instead, consumers bake the pizzas at their homes. According to Nation’s Restaurant News, take-and-bake pizzerias typically have lower costs because they require less restaurant space and equipment. As a result, they are often able to undercut the national pizza giants. Papa Murphy’s also offers salads, chocolate chip cookie dough, cheesy bread, cinnamon wheels, smores dessert pizzas, and soft drinks in various sizes.
