Noble Roman's, headquartered in Indianapolis, Indiana, currently licenses and franchises its Noble Roman's Pizza and Tuscano's Italian Style Subs in the US via the take-n-bake pizza, whereby customers purchase uncooked pizzas, taking them home to bake.
The design of the company's take-n-bake pizza concept is as a fresh, not frozen, product which is licensed to grocery stores, and sold under franchise agreements at stand-alone and convenience stores.
With Tuscano's, the company focuses on sub sandwich menus which are normally awarded to facilities that already operate pizza franchises. The company introduced this grab-n-go service in order to expand opportunities at existing non-traditional or stand-alone sub locations.
In November, Paul Mobley, Chairman and CEO stated, "We have built a profitable platform for growth, benefitting from the increasing popularity of the take-n-bake concept."
Taglich estimates a cumulative total of at least 65 stand-alone take-n-bake franchise locations by December 31, 2014.
One-time franchise signing fees are $18,000 per location or an estimated cumulative total of nearly $1.2 million. Once an individual location is fully operational, it should generate at least $48,000 and upwards of $72,000 in royalty revenue to the company.
CHD Expert, a consulting firm that conducts research on global away-from-home food trends, estimates US pizza marketplace sales of $46 billion per year, of which quick-service restaurants are an estimated $33 billion.
Analyst Howard Halpern stated, "With an estimated 35 additional take-n-bake locations signed in 2014, we project net income of $3.1 million or $0.15 per share on revenue growth of 20% to $10.2 million."
The company currently trades at $1.91, well below the $3.15 target price, and with 19.6 million shares outstanding, the company is capitalized at $37.4 million.
