Pizza Patrón Inks Three-Store Development Deal in Tucson, Arizona

posted on August 17th 2016 /

TUCSON, Ariz. – Aug. 17, 2016 – Pizza Patrón, widely known for its PIZZA POR PESOS® program, has signed a three-store development agreement with local entrepreneur George Wise to expand the chain’s Arizona footprint in Tucson.
Pizza Patrón currently has 93 restaurants open, including 11 in Arizona, and approximately 20 more under development nationwide.

 

“We have a loyal following in Arizona and are excited to announce the coming of three new stores to Tucson, which the NPD Group has ranked the best medium-sized market for QSR’s with an 8% forecast growth through 2020 and more than 1,000 QSR in the area today,” said Victor Vazquez, vice president of business development for Pizza Patrón. “We’re extremely happy to partner with Mr. Wise, a local seasoned businessman who will do an exceptional job of expanding our brand while serving his local community.”

Pizza Patrón is actively seeking qualified franchisees to expand the chain 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.

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 $261,550.

 

“We have a brand new restaurant prototype, a freestanding 1,200 sq. ft. building featuring a pick-up window,” said Vazquez. “Franchisees love its street visibility. The new structure and design have been well received by consumers and is an attractive real estate option for seasoned Quick Service Restaurant developers in every market.”
