Pizza has been a franchising mainstay for decades, but there’s a new pizzeria in town that’s changing the game for pizza lovers and franchisees everywhere.

Pizzeria Halt’s founder Sambit Duttaroy recognized the universal love of pizza but wanted to create a brand that was as accessible as it was delicious. Trends like veganism are on the rise, and health conditions such as cancer, heart problems, and lactose intolerance – something Duttaroy suffers from himself – meant that many couldn’t enjoy this tasty treat.

With the creation of Pizzeria Halt, Duttaroy is catering to the 9.7 million Americans that have adapted to a plant-based diet and is now looking to take this innovative concept around the world by partnering with like-minded entrepreneurs. “We started this business because of our community,” says Duttaroy. “We felt that the over-processed food served in our area is not what our neighbors deserve. We care for quality, and the health of people above all else.”


Pizzeria Halt had a strange start, launching in Modesto, California in early 2020 – right around the start of the pandemic’s disruption of the fast-casual scene. Thankfully for the brand, eight in 10 Americans have changed their food habits as a result of COVID-19, which led to an almost immediate uptake in demand for Pizzeria Halt’s alternative take on beloved recipes.

“We care for quality and the health of people above all else”

The pandemic brought to light the importance of staying healthy and putting clean ingredients into your body. It’s no secret that fast food like pizza is usually the worst for our health, but in times of crisis, people still turn to comfort foods that help them to persevere.

Accessible healthy food doesn’t break the bank, but it’s sometimes impossible for those wanting to eat a well-balanced diet to find meals that are quick and easy to order. With the rise of Pizzeria Halt, this problem can become a thing of the past.


As well as providing healthy, plant-based options for its customers, Pizzeria Halt is also now Green Business Certified through the California Green Business Network, and also recently received an eco-friendly award due to its method of cooking and waste disposal. The concept is also working towards receiving a Halal certification, too, which will allow the brand to serve even more kinds of customers.

Pizzeria Halt is currently looking for franchise partners with a strong work ethic, customer-first mentality, and firm sales and marketing skills. In return, the brand provides ongoing operational and marketing support, as well as research and development to ensure menus are always kept as enticing as possible, and unit-level profitability remains high.

If you’re looking to make a difference in people’s lives while making a profit, then join the Pizzeria Halt family today.
