Suwanee, Georgia Based Sid’s Pizza & Grill Announces Special Franchise Pricing For Veterans


(April 27, 2015) Suwanee, Georgia based Sid’s Pizza & Grill Managing Member Stan Kurnett announced today the company is offering a special discount to veterans interested in owning a Sid’s Pizza franchise. Active and honorably discharged former members of the military receive a 50% reduction in the initial franchise fee, a savings of $15,000.

Said Stan Kurnett, “My wife Sharon and I want to show our deep gratitude for the service that the members of our armed forces perform for our country. We recognize the sacrifices that our military and their families make every day to protect us, our loved ones, our community and our freedoms. By offering this discount, we hope to express our thanks for their service in a meaningful way, by helping them to achieve their dreams of owning their own business and having financial security.”

Sid’s Pizza offers authentic Sicilian pizza, handmade from scratch and stone baked, with either traditional or thin crust, in a laid-back, vintage California surfer atmosphere. The menu also includes wings, oven baked subs, burgers and salads. Some of Sid’s specialty pizzas, such as the Buffalo Billabong and Haole, have achieved a virtual cult-like following. In the restaurant’s over ten-year history, Sid’s Pizza has earned accolades ranging from being voted Best Pizza on the Northside by readers of the Atlanta Constitution/Journal, Editor’s Choice for Best Pizza on the Northside by Points North Magazine and Atlanta’s Best Kept Secret by radio station DaveFM. The restaurant offers dine-in, take-out, delivery and catering options.

Sid’s Pizza has developed the procedures to produce a high volume of superior-quality pizza from a smaller space with relatively low food and labor costs. With the restaurant’s operating system and oven, a location can turn out over 100 large pizzas an hour.

Steve Raines, President of National Franchise Associates, one of the nation’s leading franchising consulting and development firms, helped create the Sid’s Pizza franchise system. Raines is a former winner of the Georgia Veterans Advocate of the Year Award for his work with Vietnam-era veterans. Said Raines, “I am so pleased that Stan and Sharon are making this very generous offer to former and active members of the military. It can be hard to fully appreciate the difficulty many veterans experience in transitioning to civilian life. This substantial discount could very well make the difference in a member of the armed forces being able to open this franchise and flourish in life after the military.”
