Telepizza (Spanish pronunciation: [teleˈpitsa]) is a pizza restaurant chain that operates in Spain, some Spanish-speaking countries, in countries of the European Union and the Middle East. It was founded in 1987 with capital from Galicia and Madrid, the Galician segment would leave in 1989 to create Pizza Móvil. The company had factories in Guadalajara, Barcelona, Móstoles, Alcobendas, but were later sold and all the production is made at a factory in Daganzo de Arriba, Madrid. The factories produce the pizza base and then distribute them through the different stores.
