The Pizitz Management Group LLC is a retail management company with offices at 2112 11th Avenue South in the Plaza Building of the Magnolia Office Park in Birmingham's southside.

It was founded in 1986 when the Pizitz family sold its eponymous department store chain to McRae's. Richard Pizitz was the first CEO. It is currently headed by Jeff Pizitz and Richard Pizitz Jr.

In addition to the two Gus Mayer stores it owns in Birmingham and Nashville, the Pizitz Management Group also owns dozens of American Cookie Co. and Mrs. Fields franchises and in 2010 launched 32 degrees, a self-serve frozen yogurt chain with its first location at The Summit.
