The Papa Murphy's concept of "take-n-bake" pizza began in 1981, born out of the owner's frustration with bad pizza from chains, which often tasted as if every ingredient was canned or frozen. Deciding to change the industry, Papa Murphy's tosses every ingredient, all of which are never frozen, onto the crust in front of the customer's eyes and sends them home to bake in a home oven. This dedication to fresh flavor earned Papa Murphy's the top spot on Zagat's National Chain survey, as well as the #1-Rated Restaurant Chain title in 2013, according to Technomic Consumer Brand Metrics.
Papa Murphy's provides convenient and delicious meals from more than 1,400 locations in the United States, Canada and United Arab Emirates. Visitors can create their own take on the pizza pie or chomp into one of his Signature pizzas, which range from meat-filled stuffed crust to calorie-conscious lite varieties covered in vegetables. His appetizers and desserts follow the same pattern. Customers order raw cookie dough or cheesy bread ripe for the baking, resulting in every course being fresh from the oven.
