Pizza Inn Arrives In Two Locations In Marion, Arkansas

MARION, Ark., Sept. 28, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Pizza Inn, Inc. (Nasdaq:PZZI), an international pizza chain recognized for serving a variety of fresh, popular traditional and specialty pizzas, is now available in two locations in Marion, AR as part of a multi-unit franchise agreement with Flash Market Convenience stores.  

A new Pizza Inn Express opened at 3148 Interstate 55 on Sept. 22 and a new Pizza Inn delivery/carryout location opened at 1114 Hwy 77 South on Sept. 26. The two additions make a total of three Pizza Inn introductions at Flash Market stores in less than two weeks and emphasize a program to bring more fresh products to their customers across their stores in Arkansas and Tennessee. 

Flash Market stores are owned by the Patterson family, who also feature Subway, Quiznos, Baskin Robbins and Dairy Queen franchises in their convenience stores and travel plazas.

"We wanted to upgrade our existing pizza programs to include a quality brand name with a menu that offers a fresh made dough product," said Shane Patterson, whose family members are lifelong residents of Marion, AR. "After reviewing several brands, Pizza Inn was an easy choice. And the Pizzerts have become a family favorite."

"This is a tremendous opportunity to introduce Pizza Inn to new customers and provide our pizzas to those familiar with our brand in this market," said Charlie Morrison, CEO of Pizza Inn. "The Patterson Family has a long history of success with high profile franchise brands and we are excited that Pizza Inn will now be able to play a part in the success."

Patterson said the company plans to open up additional Pizza Inn locations in coming months.

"Flash Market has done an incredible job introducing Pizza Inn to stores in record time," said Dino Chavez, director of franchise development for Pizza Inn. "They are a leading example of the growing demand for Pizza Inn products at convenience stores as consumers look for more fresh products with great taste."
