Sal’s

The Challenge:

Sal Lupoli opened his first pizza shop in 1990. Today, there are over 40 corporate and franchised Sal’s Pizza locations. The growth of the pizza franchise had been organic, but the Lupoli team knew they could do even better. They had outgrown their website, and had a minimal digital presence. They engaged The Marketing Zen Group to lead their online marketing efforts.

  • Increase engagement with the company’s online community through social media and digital marketing efforts
  • Increase foot traffic and in-store purchases
  • Increase number of potential franchisees
