Oath Pizza‚ the craft pizza franchise distinguished by its lighter, customizable, and better-for-you pizzeria offerings is coming to Los Angeles, California, thanks to a new partnership with Brothers Empire, the brand’s newest franchise partner.

The new franchise group is made up of brothers-in-law Mandeep Singh, Garish Talwar, and Kulwant Jafal. They see how well-positioned the pizza franchise is and are excited to get in on the ground floor and take advantage of the valuable white space available.

“I worked for PepsiCo for nearly ten years, working mostly in finance,” says Singh, who says he was inspired to become a business owner after watching his parents run a successful small business. “Eventually, I decided to leave the corporate world and try being an entrepreneur. Going into this with my two brothers-in-law has been such a joy. It’s exciting enough to run a business, but to run a family business is a dream come true,” he adds. “Many of Oath’s most loyal customers are family, so it’s great to be a family operation, with a family brand, serving families.”

Singh says he and his brothers-in-law researched many brands in the franchise industry before stumbling across an article about Oath that caught their eye.

“We liked what we read, so we dug a little deeper and decided to reach out to their team,” Singh recollects. “I was immediately impressed with their team. They are great people, and they walked us through every question we had. They are passionate about what they do.”

“When we first talked with Mandeep, he was looking for a concept he could scale,” says Oath Pizza President and CEO Drew Kellogg. “That was exciting for us because that’s what is so great about this concept - we’ve built and refined this brand to make it truly scalable.” He adds.“Mandeep understands our vision, and he is a truly talented operator with exactly the type of passion and determination we look for in all our franchise partners.”

Brothers Empire’s first of three Oath Pizza units will open in fall 2022. The new three-unit signing is just the first step in the company's plan to grow in markets across the U.S. 

“We’ve already seen an enormous demand for Oath Pizza across California and so many other markets across the U.S., and for now, we still have wide-open availability,” Kellogg adds. “That’s a rare and potentially lucrative combination in the franchise industry. Everyone loves pizza, and that’s not changing any time soon. But increasingly, people are searching for something more wholesome — something they feel good about feeding themselves, their friends, and their families. That’s what Oath Pizza offers, and that’s exactly why we are so well-positioned for growth.”

As the franchise embarks on its ambitious expansion efforts, Kellogg says franchisees like Brothers Empire are critical to the brand’s growth.

“We are always looking to partner with smart, passionate entrepreneurs who share our mission to inspire happiness in our customers, restaurant teams, and communities,” Kellogg explains. “That’s what we’ve found with Mandeep, Garish, and Kulwant. We’re looking forward to working with many other franchise partners in new markets all across the country.”

The cost to open an Oath Pizza franchise ranges from $350,000–$505,200, including a $30,000 franchise fee. For more information on franchising with Oath Pizza, visit
