Pizza Patrón Completes Remodels on 85% of Stores in 2015

posted on October 21st 2015 /

DALLAS — October 21, 2015 – Pizza Patrón, widely known for its PIZZA POR PESOS® program, announced today that it has completed renovation of the company’s dramatic new customer-focused ‘Nueva Tradición’ design in 81 of its 95 locations. The remodel process began in April of 2013 when the company’s first franchise agreements began coming up for renewal.

 

The ‘Nueva Tradición’ design was developed to help each store make a striking statement when contrasted against its peers of inline shopping center tenants. New trade dress elements incorporate some of the hard-won positions Pizza Patrón has stood for, and gained international recognition for over the years like Pizza Por Pesos® and Pizza Por Favor®.

 

Vibrant colors, original commissioned art and sleek architectural details produce a more modern and dramatic feel while maintaining a clear connection to our historic Pizza Patrón roots. The design also creates a dynamic invitation to guests who will find the new interior more attractive, open and welcoming.

 

“For ‘Nueva Tradición,’ we enhanced each storefront with a custom-made, ‘old school’ glass neon design that commands attention from the street,” said Andrew Gamm, executive vice president for Pizza Patrón. “The sign features the ‘Patrón Man’ and ‘Pizza Por Pesos®’ trademarks. Other additions include the signature two-tone red and green wainscot across the bottom of each exterior window, further distinguishing Pizza Patrón from its neighbors.”

 

Front door graphics were adjusted to include reserved space for featured national promotions. Inside the lobby, the original textured finishes have been replaced with smooth surfaces reducing construction and maintenance costs and modernizing the look. The new menu/graphics system standardizes the restaurants and offers more flexibility to franchisees.

 

“Finally, we commissioned a vibrant work of art that blends culture and branding and will be installed as a mural in every new or remodeled restaurant,” said Gamm. “The colorful piece adds an energetic vibe to each store, showcases our family-friendly focus and contains three brand messages emblazoned within the picture…Pizza Por Pesos®, Pizza Por Favor® and Sabor Latino™.”

 

Today, the company has 95 restaurants open with additional restaurants currently under development in multiple Texas markets including Dallas, Fort Worth, San Antonio and Austin.

Pizza Patrón Says ‘Hasta la Vista’ to Fifty-Million Pizzas

posted on October 14th 2015 /

DALLAS — October 14, 2015 – Pizza Patrón, widely known for its PIZZA POR PESOS® program, announced today that in 2015, it blew past the fifty million pies sold mark. Since it began franchising in 2003, the company has sold enough pizza to feed a slice to every man, woman and child in Mexico and the United States combined. By the end of the year, Pizza Patrón will have sold enough slices to feed Canada’s entire population as well.

 

“Customers in markets across the country have responded well to our product, and a milestone of this magnitude says a lot about the staying power of the Pizza Patrón brand,” said Andrew Gamm, executive vice president of Pizza Patrón. “We have a laser focus that really differentiates us from our competitors and gets people talking. With more than fifty million pizzas sold, it’s pretty clear that we have a lot of fans to whom we have said ‘buen provecho.’”

 

Gamm credits Pizza Patrón’s success to exceptional franchise partners who take tremendous pride in consistently providing customers fresh food and friendly, bicultural service. The company’s formula has also garnered international media attention on many occasions resulting in heightened brand awareness and sustained traffic increases at the stores.

 

After a two-year hiatus from franchising, and fueled by system-wide sales growth over the past few years, the company is turning its eye towards expansion once again. With Latinos representing the largest and youngest growth segment of the U.S. population, the brand’s focus is on target and on time.

 

Today, the company has 95 restaurants open with additional restaurants currently under development in multiple Texas markets including Dallas, Fort Worth, San Antonio and Austin.

DALLAS — October 7, 2015 – Pizza Patrón, widely known for its PIZZA POR PESOS® program, opened restaurants Austin, Fort Worth and Dallas in September. Each of the new locations was built by a veteran, multi-unit Pizza Patrón owner – one of whom is company founder, Antonio Swad.

 

Company officials say that after suspending its franchising program for the past two years, it is turning its eye towards growth once again. All of the new stores are strategically located in markets where the brand wants to enlarge its existing footprint.

 

“The Pizza Patrón brand owns a unique spot in the market and we believe it is more relevant today than it has ever been,” said Andrew Gamm, executive vice president of Pizza Patrón. “Our company has never been healthier and we are ready to mash the growth pedal. We have a solid strategy and a new standalone store model that will help take us to the next level in the industry.”

 

Pizza Patrón set all-time sales records in 46-percent of its stores during the first three quarters of 2015. In addition, the company’s new standalone store model with pick-up window, which opened on September 18 in Dallas, has already cracked the system’s top five sales list after only its first two weeks of business.

 

“We are very excited about our new standalone store model and the opportunities it represents for our brand,” said Gamm. “We plan to open franchising again in select markets in the near future.”

 

Today, the company has 95 restaurants open with additional restaurants currently under development in multiple Texas markets including Dallas, Fort Worth, San Antonio and Austin.
