Why Us

The Company

In 1992, brothers Aro & Allen Agakhanyan opened their first pizzeria in Los Angeles while they were both attending high school. They toiled for several years to prove their pizza restaurant concept was unique and different from the national pizza brands. Not only did they recreate the traditional pizzeria with a “cool” Southern California feel, but they also expanded the size of their pizzas to fit the demands of their guests. Their initial pizza size was a 28” pizza that you could order with your choice of toppings. But it soon became apparent that in order to feed the really big appetites of their customers, the Big Papa (36” in diameter) was born. But Aro and Allen Agakhanyan were not satisfied even then, so they introduced the Giant Sicilian which was and is the largest deliverable pizza in the world. The Giant Sicilian (54” X 54”) and is in the Guinness World Record Book.

The Agakhanyan Brothers continued to enhance the BMPP brand with the addition of creative Southern California products like the Egg Gondola Pizza, Big Mama’s Slice, Pastas, Fresh Salads and Appetizers. Today, BMPP Pizzerias have become the place for family and friends to enjoy both lunch and dinner. The original BMPP restaurant was only 500 square feet. Today, the recently opened BMPP restaurant located in Glendale, C.A. is approximately 2000 square feet and future plans call for every new franchise location to be between 2000-3000 square feet offering Dine-in, Carryout and Delivery.



Since their humble beginning in 1992 in Los Angeles, C.A., BMPP Restaurants have grown to include 17 Company and Franchisee locations across Los Angeles County and has become a formidable competitor to the large national pizza chains through a combination of offering high quality food ingredients, a variety of additional menu items, their one of a kind BIG pizza offerings, their focus on quality food ingredients and their commitment to the highest level of customer service and delivery options.

BMPP is a real pizzeria restaurant, not just a delivery pizza chain. Future restaurant locations will be larger footprints featuring seating for 40-75 persons, re-introducing the idea that Pizzerias are back, and that families and large groups can experience great food, together. BMPP’s delivery vehicles (Smart Cars fitted with special insulated roof racks so they can deliver the Giant 54” x 54” Sicilian Pizza) reinforces the brand’s focus on the customer, the environment and provides BMPP a very “Southern California Cool” public persona. Come to us and enjoy, or we will come to you, with a high quality product that is fresh, hot and delicious.

BMPP is definitely “Southern California Cool” as witnessed by 43 million viewers who watched the live broadcast of the 2014 Oscar’s when host Ellen DeGeneres handed out Big Mama’s and Papa’s pizza slices to Hollywood A-List stars Harrison Ford, Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt, Leonardo DiCaprio & others

Pizza Industry Trends

As detailed in the 2019 Pizza Power Report, 4 themes kept appearing again & again: Quality, Ingredients, Technology and Youth Culture.

Consumers are increasingly insisting on the freshest, healthiest ingredients, a trend driven largely by younger segments of consumers, who also demand the highest technology available to facilitate ease of ordering & delivery.

Regional pizza varieties are on the rise, due in part to social media. The younger generation wants to know what’s in their food, affording a great opportunity for pizzeria restaurants to dominate their market, because they can.

Although dinner still dominates the pizza industry, other day parts, such as lunch and breakfast, have gained traction. According to an Economic Research consumer survey, breakfast is the fastest-growing day part in the restaurant industry. Egg and ham pizzas for breakfast are gaining popularity, with 17% of frequent pizza consumers reporting they have eaten pizza for breakfast.
