We make pizza more interesting!
It’s not just the finest ingredients we use, but the way we combine them to create unique combinations that are adventures in flavour. We make our pizza the authentic way, relying on instinct and measuring by hand rather than following a strict formula.
Our ‘boutique’ style extends beyond our menu, all the way through to a customer’s experience in a Crust store. While there are commonalities in store design, we endeavor to keep the boutique, local pizzeria feel in our store design and customer experience.
CRUST is not just a franchise; we are a family.
If you are ready to connect and cultivate customer experiences ‘A CRUST above the rest’… We want to speak to you! Call us today!

Once you’ve decided on selecting a Crust franchise, we are there to support you every step of the way through the application process
The first step to the lifestyle, freedom and financial security you want is a click away.
You don’t have to be Italian to feel the love of the CRUST culture and dining experience! This franchise is about food and family and no matter where you come from, it's a model that you are sure to find a home.
Equipment and set-up costs will vary from site to site. Our classically simple décor and streamlined operation makes the outlay uncomplicated and cost effective. As a guide, a franchise – from initial set-up to being fully operational – will cost between $375,000 and $450,000 excluding GST, including the initial franchise fee.
We are eager to open franchises in every capital city of Australia and we are growing fast. If you feel you have the right location, please call us.
Yes. Many of our Franchisees are multi-site operators. This is the greatest indicator that there is a strong degree of satisfaction among Franchisees.
Crust provides ongoing support and training at all times. All new Franchisees undergo four weeks training at Head Office in QLD. Additional support includes marketing and advertising assistance and new product development. Our people are always available for queries and questions that need to be answered via email, telephone and after-hours emergency numbers.
Every franchisee contributes to a marketing fund that is uses to run programs that range from radio, direct mail and outdoor advertising to branded pop up stores at local events.
Obviously, applicants who have managed people in the restaurant industry or the pizza delivery business are especially well prepared for the work required. Retail managers, or those who have retail business experience, also have very useful skills. While such experience is helpful, it is not a requirement. Most people in the restaurant business today came from totally unrelated fields without any intention of owning a restaurant. Our extensive training program and the ongoing guidance from our management team prepares you adequately to manage and operate your own store.
Yes. We are an owner/operator franchise system. At least one partner has to maintain a 50 percent ownership in the operating company and must be involved full-time in day to-day operations.
The amount of money you may earn depends on many factors, including how well you manage your store and control variable costs, local marketing and advertising, the cost of your investment and other unique circumstances. As a new Franchisee, it is important to have realistic expectations about the initial income you’ll be earning and to keep in mind that a gradual process of commitment and effort achieves ongoing success.
On average, it will take 8-12 weeks from the time you sign the Franchise Contract and Lease to the time you open your doors. As with most worthwhile things, it takes a bit of time to find the right site and to organise all details with the local council and all other relevant entities.
This is essentially a bond you pay to the Landlord as security over the tenancy. This would be refunded to you by the Landlord at the end of your lease subject to meeting the terms and conditions of your agreement.
This is a financial rebate the Landlord will pay to you generally upon completion of your new store build.
CRUST has allowed me to trade in my old corporate life to be my own boss!

If you are looking for a ticket to freedom and flexibility - look no further!
