HELL is an owner operated business so we expect you to be at the coal face serving customers, making pizza, doing the dishes, cleaning the ceiling, answering phones, and making money. If this is not you - all good - carry on eating HELL.
We’re always looking for new franchisees to purchase existing profitable stores, or open up in new un-tapped locations.
If you think you have what it takes, read our information pack (download one below) and email us - email@example.com

See you in HELL!
First floor, no street frontage, dodgy access and a tiny kitchen - fundamentally wrong in so many ways, but it worked. This was the birthplace of HELL and we operated out of Kelburn for eight years, before moving the kitchen to the top of Cuba St in 2004.
Customers often recall their first experience being in the original Kelburn store.
HELL we even called it the centre of the world after so many people all over the planet, telling us it was their virgin HELL meal! Walking up the back stairs through the kitchen, avoiding banging their head on the shelf (look out fool), and some even remember when we had a dine in section with views over Wellington (or, if you worked for HELL, the place where we got trashed and launched firecrackers out the window). Good times.
In the early days we tried everything: rice tandoori pizza, delivery milkshakes, curries, mud cake, flame bread - all in search of the wicked menu that is HELL today. In 2000, Callum partnered with his mate Stu and together they opened the Hataitai store. We loved this earthquake hazard of a building, from the collapsing floor, home made counters and menu boards, and excellent staff and customers that made it an institution in Hataitai. HELL had started to grow.
We opened another store in Northland the following year and set up a prep kitchen that serviced our three stores. Delivering around Wellington in the Escargo with occasional brakes and handling like a 4-wheeled sailing ship in the wind, we started honing our systems and products. We then opened in Petone - our first 'quality' fit out.
In 2003 Warren partnered with the guys and helped grow the business with his franchise knowledge. Our 4 plus 10 franchised stores in the first year, 16 in the second, 21 in the third year and 15 in 2006. We finished 06 with 66 stores, wicked franchisees and happy customers. The time was right to move onwards and upwards, so we sold the NZ business, and went in search of new countries for HELL. First, we went to London, then Brisbane, Seoul, India and Vancouver.
The early days of HELL was about living our business every day, working damned hard and making tasty pizzas. These were some of the best times of our lives and helped shape the business into what it is now.
In 2009, we bought our New Zealand business back. The old owners didn't get it. In May 09, we started the resurrection of HELL. We took out the trash, had fun with our marketing, improved ingredients and launched some new tasty products. In 2011 Warren left the company to explore overseas opportunities.
HELL is 666% New Zealand owned and committed to giving you the best damned pizza in this life or the next.
