Rosati’s Pizza promoted Tim McCarthy to the position of Vice President of Franchise Development in October 2015. Tim led the franchise to the largest growth period in over 50 years. An astonishing 40 new Rosati’s Pizza Sports Pubs have been added to the franchise since 2012.
“Investing in a franchise is a large purchasing decision and for Tim McCarthy to successfully find new franchisees as rapidly as he has, says something about his work ethic, dedication and experience in the franchise industry, said Anthony Rosati, key principal of Rosati’s Franchising, Inc. “He shows tenacity and a passion for the goal of growth for the franchise and we are grateful to have him part of our team.”
McCarthy spent 17 years in franchise development working for UPS, Cold Stone Creamery and Re-Bath. “I feel very fortunate to have found the perfect fit with Rosati’s Pizza,” said McCarthy. “The timing was perfect and I feel very privileged to have participated in and contributed to the initial launch of the new full-service sports pub concept. We have had a great ride so far and it is only going to get better.”
The first Rosati’s Pizza Pub was opened in 2010 in Yorkville, IL and has steadily increased sales since opening. As of 2015, it is the highest grossing sports pub in the system. There are currently 47 sports pubs opened and set to open the United States in 2016. When McCarthy joined the team in 2012, there were only seven sports pubs. The investment for a sports pub can be upwards of $733K. Franchisees are buying into a proven system and the brand name.
“2015 has been a very successful year; we ranked in Entrepreneur Magazine’s Franchise 500 for the fourth year in a row, we were inducted into the Pizza Hall of Fame by Pizza Today and ranked by Nation’s Restaurant News as one of the ‘Top 20 Up and Coming Franchise Chains,’ among other accolades,” said Marla Topliff, president of Rosati’s Pizza. “Tim McCarthy has contributed immensely to our franchise growth in the past three years. He works all of the franchise shows by himself and does an excellent job,” said Topliff.
