November 24, 2009, Vancouver, WA – Papa Murphy's Take 'N' Bake Pizza chain was recently rewarded with extremely high satisfaction ratings in a survey conducted by Franchise Business Review.

The national franchise market research firm announced that Papa Murphy's scored as one of the top food franchises for 2009 based on overall franchise owner satisfaction. Papa Murphy's is one of only 11 food companies out of nearly 100 major brands that can make this claim. Papa Murphy's is the fifth-largest pizza chain in the U.S. and the pioneer of the take 'n' bake pizza segment.

"Franchisee satisfaction and performance is one of the most critical pieces of information for any prospective franchise investor to consider," states Eric Stites, president of Franchise Business Review. "We have surveyed thousands of franchisees from the food industry and the Papa Murphy's franchise system has some of the highest owner satisfaction in their segment."

The survey asked franchise owners 20 questions related to their franchise ownership experience, from franchisee training and support to system quality issues, franchisor relationship, financial opportunity and overall satisfaction. In all five categories, Papa Murphy's outscored the average of all other food industry participants.

"No consumer-voted award or business-press honour measures up to a franchise owner giving you high marks," said John Barr, chairman and CEO of Papa Murphy's. "The path to our success depends on the satisfaction of our franchisees. This achievement reflects the overall organization's continuing efforts to better serve our customers, our franchisees, in order to insure their success."
