#1 Latino pizza brand narrows growth focus for 2013

DALLAS  — November 14, 2012 – Pizza Patrón has opened stores in three different markets in the last three weeks.  The company plans to open two more restaurants before the end of the year – one in Phoenix and the other in San Antonio..

“We are proud to announce new stores in Dallas and McAllen, Texas as well as the Fresno, California market,” said Victor Vazquez, Pizza Patrón franchising manager. “As well, we are currently focusing our expansion to six areas in the U.S. that have densely Hispanic populations.”

Vazquez says the chain is currently looking for strong franchisee partners that are capable of establishing Pizza Patrón in the following markets: Chicago, Okla., La., Ark., Calif., and Texas (excluding markets for which there are exclusivity contracts — the Rio Grande Valley, San Antonio, Laredo and Dallas).

“These markets have tremendous upside for our brand,” said Vazquez. “We look forward to finding the right motivated partners who have a passion to serve and to become a positive force in the community surrounding each store.”

The new Pizza Patrón stores are located at 9794 Forest Ln., Dallas; 4819 Butler Ave, Fresno, Calif.; and 1410 S. Jackson Rd., McAllen, Texas. As well, the company recently signed an exclusive development agreement to bring eight stores to New Mexico, marking the chain’s initial expansion into the state.

#1 Latino pizza brand launches “Ponte la Diez” campaign

DALLAS – November 01, 2012 – Pizza Patrón announced today that it will kick off a co-branded promotion, “Ponte La Diez” or “Wear the 10”, with Pepsi starting Nov. 1, 2012, and scheduled to run through the end of the year.

The “Ponte La Diez” promotion offers customers a super-value $10 combo which includes a large Choriquezo™ pizza, a two-liter bottle of Pepsi and a free Lionel Messi-branded t-shirt*.  The lobby of each store will feature a dynamic, 5-foot tall standee with Lionel Messi’s image and other point-of-purchase displays.  The campaign ends Dec. 31, or while supplies last.

“We are extremely excited to feature Messi in our stores, he is arguably the greatest soccer player in the world today,” says Andrew Gamm, brand director for Pizza Patrón.  “Not only does the promotion offer an extremely great value to our customers, but the Messi collector t-shirt has a really fun twist,” said Gamm. “When the wearer pulls the t-shirt up over their head, celebration style, it puts the image of Messi’s face right on top of their face!”

“Ponte La Diez” or “Wear the 10” is a first of its kind campaign for Pizza Patrón, and the chain’s first to feature famous soccer great Lionel Messi.

Pizza Patrón is headquartered in Dallas with 106 locations in 8 states and more than 80 under development.  Franchise opportunities, offering a proven system for hard-working franchisee candidates, are available in prime Hispanic markets throughout the country.
