Kotipizza is the largest pizza chain in the Nordic countries and one of the best-known restaurant brands in Finland. Founded in 1987, the chain has around 290 restaurants across Finland. Kotipizza is run by independent franchisees, of which there are nearly 300. Kotipizza’s common mission is to improve the world one pizza at a time. Commercial Director Markus Kaatranen explains the cooperation with One Leasing Finland:
What is Kotipizza Oyj’s role in leasing investments?
As a franchisor, we are looking for reliable partners for Kotipizza franchisees. It is our responsibility to select and recommend partners who are responsible, cost-effective, and of high quality so that the partnership truly supports our entrepreneurs’ business.
Why did you choose One Leasing Finland as your partner?
Like Finnish consumers, home pizza consumers value local partners who are close to us. The partner must meet our high service promise to entrepreneurs. As part of this, the partner must understand and be interested in the day-to-day challenges and needs of entrepreneurs and, more generally, in the characteristics of the restaurant industry. Naturally, professionalism, shared responsible values and extensive financial expertise in different investment areas were important selection criteria.
How have you experienced working with One Leasing Finland?
The cooperation has worked well. We have appreciated One Leasing Finland’s personal and practical service. The work has been agile and straightforward, which is important in our ever-changing and fast-paced business.
Would you recommend One leasing Finland’s services to other franchisees?
