A solid business model.Our unit economics are strong and strategically designed to weather a constantly changing business climate. Market conditions will always fluctuate, but our industry is fueled by a singular, universal constantthe need to eat.
Because our stores dont require much space to operate efficiently and our staffing needs are minimal compared to full-service restaurants, the cost of opening a Pizza Patrón is a real possibility for many people.
Also, the value proposition of our menu makes our products accessible to a very broad base of consumers and makes our concept virtually economy-proof.
The strength of our growth strategy lies in the fact that we are dedicated to development through franchise distribution. The handful of company stores we maintain serve as business blueprints for our franchisees and provide a hands-on training environment for our partners.
Thorough training, rooted in decades of practical experience combine with very strong unit economics to put hard-working franchisees in an excellent position for success.
A local, international concept.The simplicity of our concept is readily adaptable for international markets. Pizza Patrón stores are operated by individuals who are part of the very market they are serving. Our business goal is for each store to develop a close bond with the local community that mirrors the nuances and distinct traits of the area where it is located.
And dont forget, pizza has universal appeal, and toppings are easily customizable for local market taste preferences.
We are innovative and fiercely competitive.Our success is the result of disciplined focus and our ability to adapt to individual market needs. Pizza Patróns fundamental business model is very flexible and designed for rapid duplication in any market. Because the pizza business is highly competitive, it is incumbent upon us to respond quickly and effectively to competitors and new market pressures.
We work continuously on new products and promotions to enhance our business and differentiate our brand from the competition. Every new idea is thoroughly tested with consumers and meets our strict operational and financial standards before going to the next level. Once the initial benchmarks are exceeded, expanded testing with full operational and marketing support takes place in multiple markets. If all of the objectives are then successfully reached, the product or concept is launched system-wide.
Since 2003, Pizza Patrón has successfully introduced new products like our Patrón Dips, Fiesta Wings, BreadStix QuesoStix, Churros and we rolled-out our Lista-Now Ready pizza program nationally. In addition to our standard Carry-out model, Pizza Patrón has developed a Dine-in store model, Pizza Patrón Rapidito for airports & malls and our QSP (Quick Service Pizza) drive-thru concept.
In 2005, Pizza Patrón opened its new corporate headquarters and set the foundation for strong domestic and international growth in the future.
