posted on May 23rd 2016 /

SAN ANTONIO – May 23, 2016 – Pizza Patrón, widely known for its PIZZA POR PESOS® program, announced the opening of its newest location in San Antonio, Texas. The new carryout restaurant is located at 5835 Culebra Road.

 

The store will be operated by veteran multi-unit franchisees S.A. Pizza IX, LLC, and will be open from 10:30 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 10:30 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays. Call-in orders can be placed by dialing 210-402-9660.

 

“We are excited about serving this community and hope everyone turns out soon to come meet us and give us a try,” said Christopher Partyka, Pizza Patrón franchisee. This is the 11th San Antonio store for Partyka who has plans to build an additional five stores in that market.

 

“S.A. Pizza was the first franchisee to take Pizza Patrón outside Dallas,” said Andrew Gamm, executive vice president of Pizza Patrón. “Partyka has been a pioneer for Pizza Patrón in many ways, and is an outstanding partner who takes tremendous pride in running top-notch restaurant operations.”

 

Pizza Patrón makes its signature dough from scratch in every store daily. The pizza sauce starts with fresh-packed, crushed Roma tomatoes and marinates for at least 24 hours with the company’s secret blend of spices and herbs.  Guests can choose from a wide selection of traditional pizzas and sides as well as signature pies like ‘La Choriquezo,’ a large pizza made with spicy ranch sauce and loaded with 100% real mozzarella cheese, fresh-sliced red onions and piled high with smoky, chorizo sausage.

 

San Antonio is the seventh largest municipality in the U.S. and its metropolitan area grew by 9.05% between 2010 and 2015. It is projected to grow an additional 7.64% through the year 2020 according to the 2014 U.S. Census Bureau.

 

“San Antonio’s continued expansion illustrates how high the ceiling for growth is for Pizza Patrón in that market,” said Gamm.

Pizza Patrón Inks New Development Deal in Brownsville, Texas

posted on May 17th 2016 /

DALLAS – May 17, 2016 – Pizza Patrón, widely known for its PIZZA POR PESOS® program, has signed a development agreement with Francisco Chavez and Victor Hugo Rodriguez to expand the chain’s Rio Grande Valley footprint to six stores.
Chavez’ and Rodriguez’ first Pizza Patrón is slated to open in Brownsville at the end of 2016. They own multiple businesses in the area and are active members of the community.

“The Rio Grande Valley continues to be one of the most dynamic and fastest growing restaurant regions in Texas. Combine that with our brand’s unique Hispanic focus, and this market is not only appealing, but favorable for Pizza Patron’s continued growth as well.” said Victor Vazquez, vice president of business development for Pizza Patrón.

Pizza Patrón currently has 93 restaurants open in four states and is actively seeking qualified franchisees to expand its footprint throughout Texas. Company officials say they are particularly interested in developing secondary and tertiary markets such as El Paso, Midland, Odessa, Abilene, Temple and Killeen.

“We’ve also developed a new quick-serve restaurant prototype, a freestanding 1,200 sq. ft. building featuring a pick-up window,” said Vazquez. “This new structure provides developers an opportunity to continue to grow despite high occupancy in certain markets.”

Potential franchisee candidates include seasoned restaurateurs with multi-unit experience and qualified owner operators that are solely devoted to their Pizza Patrón business and who are already part of the fabric of the local community they will serve. Including a franchise fee of $20,000, the initial investment to own and operate a Pizza Patrón restaurant starts as low as $211,100.

Those interested in development opportunities with the brand should visit ownapizzapatron.com and submit the short form to receive more information. Interested parties may also contact Isaiah Melendez, franchise sales manager for Pizza Patrón, at 972-982-0176 or isaiah@pizzapatron.com.
