Oath Pizza has grown from a small seaside shop on Nantucket Island to a 29-unit, nationwide, feel-good pizza brand and rapidly growing franchise opportunity. Oath has reimagined pizza with its one-of-a-kind avocado oil crust, high-quality ingredients, signature twists on traditional pizza flavors and build-your-own options. As a result, Oath continues to meet the growing demand from ingredient-conscious customers who don’t want to give up the foods they love.

Oath has adapted to a changing fast-casual environment,” says Drew Kellogg, Oath Pizza’s CEO. “There is a significant demand for quality pizza from people who want real, fresh ingredients,” he said. The brand’s menu and experience has caught the attention of anyone who wants to avoid processed foods, while the pizza itself gives them an option that tastes good and leaves them feeling good.

Oath Pizza’s first location opened on Nantucket in 2015. Since then, the company mission has been to inspire happiness in their teams, guests and communities every day. Under Kellogg’s leadership, Oath has opened locations across the country and launched nationwide shipping on Goldbelly?. The brand has also sourced quality products and ingredients from visionary partners such as Applegate?, Banza®, and Beyond Meat™.

“We’ve worked hard to thoughtfully source ingredients and hire top-performing teams with a commitment to hospitality, convenience, and customer service,” Kellogg added. “One of our goals is to provide the products and experiences our customers deserve.”

Oath’s vision is to make a lasting, positive impact on the world with a better pizza, backed by a promise to make environmentally-conscious choices whenever possible. These are values that both Kellogg and Stacie Colburn Hayes, the Chief Marketing Officer, are proud to grow and share with Oath Pizza after working together at Chipotle Mexican Grill

“We strive to create not only elevated pizzas here at Oath, but happier communities as well,” Hayes said. The growth of the brand’s corporate and franchise locations, paired with the launch of nationwide shipping on Goldbelly?, have given the brand an opportunity to expand its reach and develop strong relationships between restaurant teams, franchise partners, customers and communities across the country.

Philanthropy has been a part of Oath since the beginning. The team has found ways to work with many nonprofits to support their cause. Most recently they have supported Feeding America, Color of Change, Coded by Kids and LGBTQ youth shelters on the east coast.

Oath Pizza is looking for new franchise partners to join its mission to inspire happiness and positively impact the world. Oath is pushing toward a phase of rapid expansion and aims to sign more than a dozen additional franchisees by the end of 2022.

The cost to open an Oath Pizza franchise ranges from $350,000-$505,200. More investment information can be found at
