Garlic Jim's Famous Gourmet Pizza® Announces New Location In Simi Valley, California

SIMI VALLEY, CA (September, 2007) Garlic Jim's Famous Gourmet Pizza®, the first and only "gourmet" carry-out and delivery pizza chain, is expanding further into California. On September 18, 2007, Simi Valley franchisee Tom Curiale and operating partner Eric Moreno will open the doors to California's second Garlic Jim's store, in the Simi at the Plaza shopping center located at 131 D-Cochran St., Simi Valley. In celebration of his opening, the new store will hold a ribbon cutting ceremony at 12:00 p.m. on September 17th.

Curiale has been interested in Garlic Jim's since its inception, when his college friend Craig Roberts, VP of Training for Garlic Jim's, helped to develop the concept for the franchise. "I bought a franchise based on their proven success and on-going corporate support," says Curiale. "They have the highest quality pizza backed by a great operating system that allows for quick delivery and pick up service."

"We are thrilled to have Curiale 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."

The location will be open every day from 11 am - 11 pm. For more information, contact the store directly at 805-526-1500. Curiale welcomes church, school, and community organizations to seek his services for large parties and events.


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, smokin' 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 44 open stores and a total of 108 franchises sold as of September 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.
