Round Table Pizza hits Mongolia
Round Table Pizza, an American pizza chain, has signed an exclusive agreement with Mongolia International Food Holdings to develop 10 restaurants in Mongolia.
Round Table’s entry into Mongolia is a first for any major restaurant franchisor and reflects the growing importance of Mongolia in international commerce as it continues to develop its natural resources.
The first Round Table Pizza restaurant is expected to open in Ulan Bator in September 2012. The announcement brings the total number of international Round Table Pizza restaurants operating or slated for development to 47.
“We continue to see increased interest from abroad as entrepreneurs recognise the value in our brand,” notes Round Table Pizza CEO and president Rob McCourt.
“We are eager to work with partners, like Mongolia International Food Holding, who have the skills and resources to bring our core values of dedication to families and serving a superb pizza to a larger global audience.”
Founded in California’s San Francisco Bay Area in 1959, Round Table Pizza today has 450 restaurants across the western US and internationally.
