How is Kono Different? It’s Pizza Reinvented!


We’ve taken one of America’s favorite foods and made it even better.
Innovative. Authentic. Exciting.
And now, we’re taking the states by storm.

The Kono Pizza quick service franchise model is a truly unique, ground-floor business opportunity. We are looking for partners who are excited to help pioneer this new and improved version of one of America’s favorite foods — pizza. As an emerging quick service franchise with explosive growth, our aim is to bring our products to where the people are.

Our Franchise Owners don’t have expensive build-outs, high overhead and the worry of the seemingly difficult future of retail. Just like our cones, our business model is portable and flexible. Kono Franchise Owners operate food carts, trucks and trailers, to go to where the people are. From festivals, concerts, sports arenas, farmers markets and more, the success of our product and our quick service franchise business model lies in our flexibility to work with the modern-day consumer.

The Kono Truck

Kono Pizza allows our customers to enjoy a delicious meal, on the fly. We use a low-skim, low-moisture cheese to eliminate condensation and grease in Kono Pizza cones. You just eat it the same way you would an ice cream cone—but, you know, with biting instead of licking.

The Kono Trailer

The Kono Trailer is the latest weapon in the Kono franchise owners arsenal. Combining the mobility of the Cart, with the ease-of-use of the truck, the Trailer is and eye-catching and effective business model for capitalizing on busy events. The Trailer is not a motorized vehicle itself, but can be moved by a motorized vehicle you attach to it. Like the Food Truck, the Trailer is bigger than a Cart. The Trailer cannot be operated indoors, but can be operated at the same outdoor events as Carts and Food Trucks.

The Kono Cart

We're on the move! The Kono Cart was created to allow our Franchise Owners to open locations wherever the customers are! This fully operational, self-contained serving cart comes equipped to simply and efficiently produce all of our delicious pizza cones. It is NSF certified and meets health department requirements for mobile operation, and can be setup in as little as 15 minutes. Perfect for professional sports stadiums, convention centers, festivals and fairs, Kono is coming to a location near you soon!

“The flexibility of the Kono business is great. We can go to different events, move in and out really quickly. It also allows us to grow. We want to have 5 carts and trailers operating in our first 5 years.”

Business experts continue to talk about the “slow demise of tradition retail”. Serving food in malls, and even restaurants is for the first time in generations, becoming a risky endeavor. At Kono, we have realized that in order to ensure a successful future, you can no longer rely on waiting for customers to come to you…you have to go to the customers. With our mobile cart, truck and trailer, our quick service franchise owners are equipped to adapt to the future of consumerism.


Unlike most other successful quick service franchises, you don’t need $500,000 – $1,000,000 to open each location. The Kono business model was build to scale and meet the increasing demand for our product in new markets across the country. Accordingly, you can get three Kono businesses up and running for under $200,000. Our Franchise Owners enjoy being able to implement a variety of quick service franchise models in their business, from the mobile cart, to the truck, or the trailer.
