Pieminister is a B Corp producer of award-winning pies and is currently the number 1 premium pie brand in the UK. Since 2003 the Bristol-based brand has been operating successful pie shops in various U.K. locations, from Leeds down to London. Pieminister is franchising its proven model with the objective to expand to all major towns and cities across the UK. Are you ready to join this iconic brand?

Join the Journey, Join the Fun

What a journey Pieminister has been on so far. Founders and brothers-in-law Jon and Tristan started making pies in their own kitchen in 2003, then came the festivals, markets and with them, the many awards, include Supreme Champion at the British Pie Awards. The company went on to sell pies and complimentary products nationwide, and in parallel it opened its bustling pie restaurants across the country. Today, Pieminister is an omni-channel hospitality company turning over in excess of £18m and in excellent shape to pursue further growth in the market; there has never been a better time to join this fun, socially-engaged and above all, delicious brand in its exciting journey.

Our Franchisees

We envisage that our franchisees will come from a variety of backgrounds. They can be:

  • Individual owner-operators with retail or food experience looking to start their business under a likeminded brand
  • Existing multi-unit restaurant operators and franchisees looking for diversification

Why Pieminister is a Great Franchise to Join

  • Pieminister provides a great-tasting product that is prepared in the company’s grade A BRC accredited, 30,000 sq ft central production facility in Bristol, and a national brand that is loved for its fun attitude and its support to environmental and social causes.
  • Because the product is made centrally, no restaurant skill is required at pie shop level, which ensures the franchise operation does not incur in high labour costs.
  • Pieminister provides a store model that has been tested by the franchisor in multiple locations across the U.K. Requiring no extraction, the model allows you to operate from as little as 500 sq ft, with low initial capital expenditure and ongoing operating expenses.
  • A Pieminister franchise can be financed via high street banks, and it benefits from the franchisor’s plethora of industry contacts, experience in location selection and excellent in-house team of hospitality professionals.
  • Great support is available not just initially in the form of hands-on training, opening assistance, operational guidance and launch marketing support, but on an ongoing basis as the brand is dynamic in its product development, market approach and overall business strategy. This is why Pieminister has remained relevant and loved for over 2 decades in a competitive market.
