Papa John’s Pizza is a restaurant chain, which literally covers the entire world. It was Papa John’s Pizza that became the first pizzeria brand to master the service of online order, and the one that first and most actively started to attract sports celebrities for its advertising campaigns.

The annual income of Papa John’s Pizza exceeds $ 3 billion, and the brand itself is estimated at $ 6 billion.

2. Domino’s Pizza

This brand annually brings its owners more than 8 billion dollars. In fact, the geography of Domino’s Pizza has long gone beyond the US borders. Now you can meet its restaurants in any country of Europe, in Russia and even in the Asian continent.

However, back in in the 1980s, the brand almost fell into a catastrophic loss. The desire to deliver pizza as soon as possible (couriers who failed to deliver it for half an hour paid for the delivered pizza from their own pocket) led to the excess of the speed on the roads and, subsequently, to increased accidents. As a result, the American society protested the company and it was forced to abandon such practice. However, even today Domino’s Pizza delivery is considered to be the fastest one, but this time because the company simply creates more and more new restaurants, getting the necessary coverage.

According to experts, Domino’s Pizza brand’s value reaches 5.75 billion US dollars.

1. Pizza Hut

Without any doubt, this chain is one of the most popular in the US. The brand owes the part of this popularity to its original logo: red roof – the symbol of comfort and high quality of service – made the brand even more memorable.

The brand’s income is almost 13 billion dollars a year. Its potential buyers should be ready to pay 8.51 billion US dollars for it.

In conclusion, it is worth to note that new chains of pizza-making restaurants are constantly appearing in the USA. In fact, many of them are being created by the existing fast food chains. As an example, the new Pizzeria Locale chain is actually a product of one of the market leaders – Chipotle – estimated at $ 10.65 billion net worth. However, the demand for pizzerias gives rise to the supply. This is why more brands are expected to come to the market in the nearest future.
