Our Business

Casual Dining Restaurants

The much-loved, category-leading The Pizza Company brand is created by Minor Food in 2000, in a very special landmark of our journey towards brand owner. The Pizza Company takes the market by storm with innovative pizza concepts based on richer and heavier toppings, with greater variety, an appealing new cheese blend, new appetizers, and even new types of pizza dough. Our telephone ordering and delivery service, under the instantly-recognizable four digits of "1112", becomes a household name. Within a year of launch, we achieve category leadership with a brand of our own creation. Today, The Pizza Company remains one of Thailand's most beloved home-grown consumer brands. Building on our success at home, we have taken the brand to 10 overseas markets as far afield as the Middle East.
