Overview




No one can deny the impact foodservice has had on the c-store industry. In 2019, foodservice accounted for 25% of inside sales and share of gross profit dollars totaled 39%. Everyone wants a piece of this pie! But many convenience stores are simply prevented from participating in freshly prepared foodservice programs for a variety of reasons.

Godfather’s Pizza has the answer.

Godfather’s Pizza, a nationally recognized restaurant brand with locations across the United States and internationally, has been providing the best-tasting, most abundantly topped pizza pies since 1973. And we’ve been partnered with convenience store retailers with our Express program since 1990.

We know what it takes to be successful in the c-store market. That’s why we developed Godfather’s Pizza TO GO® and launched it in 2018.

Godfather’s Pizza TO GO® is a licensed pizza program targeted to a specific operation. Those with:

  • Small footprint or limited floor space
  • No or small kitchen area
  • Limited manpower
