Pizza Factory opens location in Woodland


Pizza Factory opened its 10th location in Washington state on June 1 in Woodland. Entrepreneurs Becky and Michele Lo are co-owners of the North Clark County franchise.

A news release stated the Los are experienced entrepreneurs who have worked a combined 40 years in the food industry. They have also worked for Pizza Factory for a number of years, where Becky served as the owner of the Coupeville location for the past 17 years. 

“Pizza Factory has always been a brand I admired with their commitment to quality products and the whole dynamic of the franchise system, specifically with the corporate support provided,” Michele stated in the release. “In watching my sister operate her store for nearly two decades and the success she’s seen, I knew this was a concept that would benefit Woodland, the community I currently reside in. The brand’s core values and the emphasis placed on strong relationships resonate with our family and I’m thrilled to finally open our doors and be a part of the Pizza Factory family.”

Besides the Woodland storefront, the release stated Pizza Factory has 125 locations across the country that are either open or in development. In Washington, recent openings included ones in Ocean Shores and Redmond, the release stated. The rapid growth of the company also attracted multi-unit operators and franchise partners for the second half of 2022, according to the release. 

“We’ve had an impressive start to the year, especially with new store openings,” stated Pizza Factory CEO Mary Jane Riva in the release. “Our development in Washington is growing with interest from new and existing franchisees reaching an all-time high. Our latest opening in Woodland with Becky and Michele has been key to our growth and it’s always rewarding to see existing franchisees continue to show interest in reinvesting in our brand. The entrepreneurial sister duo both have years of industry experience and I’m confident their dedication to community initiatives and seamless approach to operations will lead to success at this new store.”

The release stated the Pizza Factory maintains its reputation for “family-friendly dining and high-quality products” through its fast-casual prototypes and a new express quick-service model. The brand also provides delivery, curbside pickup, multiple dining sections, an arcade area, banquet rooms, and big-screen TVs, according to the release. 

The Woodland Pizza Factory is located at 1227 N. Goerig St.
