Garlic Jim's Famous Gourmet Pizza® Annouces New Location In Sunrise, Arizona

SURPRISE, AZ (September, 2007) Garlic Jim's Famous Gourmet Pizza®, the first and only "gourmet" carry-out and delivery pizza chain, is taking the industry by storm, with further expansion into Arizona. On September 10, 2007, Surprise, Arizona franchisee Jason Goudie will open the doors to Arizona's fourth Garlic Jim's store, in the Mountain Side Fitness Shopping Center. And in celebration of his opening, throughout the month of September, Goudie will be offering free pizza tastings to every resident who walks through the doors!

After relocating to Arizona, Goudie began researching business opportunities and was immediately drawn to Garlic Jim's. It was the business model and potential for growth that solidified his decision and the fact that Garlic Jim's makes "the world's best pizza crust" helped too. "I feel one must truly believe in their product to be successful in business. I know that soon after Surprise residents discover Garlic Jim's, it will be their favorite pizza!"

"We are thrilled to have Goudie on our team" says Dwayne Northrop, CEO, Garlic Jim's. "His vision for growth falls in line with our goals of becoming a nationwide franchise known for our top of the line quality and service."

Additionally, in celebration of his opening and the ten-year anniversary of the nearby Surprise Radiant Church, Goudie will be serving free pizza to all members of the church. Goudie welcomes additional church, school, and community organizations that seek his services for large parties and events.

The Surprise, AZ store is located at 15459 W. Bell Road. Goudie's location will be open every day from 11 am - 11 pm. For more information, contact the store directly at 623-546-6895.


In the $33 billion dollar-a-year, highly competitive U.S. pizza industry, Garlic Jim's Famous Gourmet Pizza is proud to be the first pizza franchise to focus on quick delivery pizza made fresh with gourmet toppings. Garlic Jim's in-store system and team member training allows them to make pizza in 15 minutes or less "from order to out the door," thus pioneering the concept "Gourmet, Right Away."

At Garlic Jim's the term 'gourmet' signifies more than just the finished pizza - it refers to the finest ingredients: fresh packed sauces, fresh 100% whole-milk mozzarella and fresh dough made daily, where the customer can certainly taste the difference. Garlic Jim's offers customers two crust choices; hand-thrown thick crust, made with parmesan cheese and buttermilk, or garlic thin; four cheese options: 100% whole-milk mozzarella, cheddar, feta and parmesan; seven sauces: classic red, garlic basil, basil pesto, zesty chipotle pesto, creamy ranch, smoky sweet BBQ or garlic infused olive oil, and a variety of meats, vegetables and gourmet toppings such as roasted garlic, marinated artichoke hearts, roasted corn and sun-dried tomatoes.

With gourmet pizzas such as Nutty Chipotle™, zesty chipotle pesto topped with spicy sausage, pepperoni, red onions, tomatoes and cashews, Jim's Gourmet Garlic™, basil pesto sauce, marinated artichoke hearts, roasted garlic, sun-dried tomatoes and feta cheese, and Chicken Bacon Ranch, grilled chicken, bacon, cheddar cheese, tomatoes, red onions and creamy ranch sauce, Garlic Jim's is putting a new spin on pizza. "We've gone out of our way to source the best ingredients available to create our specialty pizzas and as a result we also have the best tasting pepperoni pizza you will ever find," says Northrop.

Garlic Jim's has grown from two open stores in 2004 to 43 open stores and a total of 107 franchises sold as of August 2007. In addition to current locations in Oregon, Arizona, California, Pennsylvania and Washington, Garlic Jim's has units under development in New Jersey, Colorado, Florida, Tennessee and Texas. With projections of doubling in size in 2007, Garlic Jim's is sure to become the fastest growing gourmet pizza franchise in the country.
