I don't know how many of you have had this take-n-bake pizza, but it truly is one of the best pizzas I've ever had. However, people in the Dayton, OH area don't seem to get this. At one time we had 3 PMs in the Dayton area, and they're all closed now because they apparently didn't do enough business there. How all of these places don't have lines going out the door is beyond me. Do you have them in your local area, and if so, are they busy?

Godfathers is good too. Their taco pizza is the best I've ever had, but there's just something about pulling that freshly baked Papa Murphy's pizza out of your own oven...

We like it, but the one in our town is gone as is the one in the town we lived in previously.

Here in Chicago there are a lot of over priced pizza places.
I went to a old mom and pop place for 20 years and they got tired and closed five years ago.
I have not been able to find a reliable good pizza place since!
Enjoy!

Reality time.
Most people want a pizza baked, not one you pay top dollar for and gotta bake it yourself. Real pizza ovens used at pizza shops are better than what you and I have in our kitchen.

It sounds like there were too many franchises for the area. No matter how good a place is, there is a limit to how many locations within a certain locality. Your local economy plays are part as well.


That said, Papa Murphys is good pizza. Ive enjoyed it many times.


Cannot see signatures any longer so it doesn’t matter.

It might just be the local restaurant scene there, here in my City it's tough for any chain to get a foothold because of so many restaurants (local independent and national chains).

It took Wendy's three tries to get a foothold here, and even then they can only muster one location (240,000 people plus another 150,000 within 60 miles). Both other times it was three locations, all three went bankrupt, twice. Lots of others have found it hard to get a foothold (Harvey's, bankrupt before opening a Kiosk on Campus that stuck but that's the only location) but there are hundreds, maybe thousands of independents. Even well established chains like McD can only muster 7 locations in the whole city. The Colonel does well here but we had Canada's first KFC (1955, his first franchise was in Ohio in 1952).

Up until about 15 years ago we had the most restaurants per capita in Canada (Toronto and Vancouver have moved into 1 and 2 today). Maybe that's the reason in Dayton?

Never heard of Papa Murphy's. We have Domino's, Papa John's and Papa Gino's here, but they closed the local Pizza Huts (my favourite) and now the closest one is almost an hour away.
