We are meeting with Kaitlynn Caster of Pizza Guys. Kaitlynn left her college education behind to run her very own Pizza Guys. From humble beginnings as a single pizza restaurant in 1986, Pizza Guys have become a recognized leader in the pizza industry. From the day they opened, we have been committed to serving our customers the highest quality food, providing superior service, and creating unique specialty pizza recipes that can be delivered quickly to your door.
They continue to innovate their products and services, making ordering easier for our customers. Today, they have over 70 independently owned franchises run by men and women living and working in your community. Their success is due to our dedicated franchisees, thousands of dedicated team members, and loyal customers.
The average franchise owner is male, 38 years old, and has a college education. Meet 24-year-old Kaitlynn Caster, who left her college education behind to run her own Pizza Guys store. Caster uses her young age and fresh ideas to further the brand’s presence and hopes to show others that college is not the only path.
Kaitlynn began her journey with Pizza Guys while working as a shift leader at the location her father owned during high school. While attending university, Caster felt that it was not the right choice and decided to make a change. She returned to work as a manager at her family-owned Pizza Guys location and became an owner in October 2021. Her commitment and drive for the business, as well as her approach to running the restaurant, has been the determining factor in her success. Being of young age, Caster embodies the brand’s continuous new products and concepts. She is also better able to connect with her young staff. In addition, her ambitious attitude means she already has plans to open more locations in her area.
