December 15, 2009 // Franchising.com // The Colony, Texas - Pizza Inn, Inc. (Nasdaq:PZZI), an international pizza chain with more than 300 restaurants in 11 countries, announces the opening of its newest restaurants in Chihuahua, Mexico.
The first location, Pizza Inn Vallarta, opened on November 23 at Calle Zaragoza Y Pimentel Local 1A, Colonia Granjas. The second location, Pizza Inn Oritz Mena, opened on November 30 at Blvd. Ortiz MENA 200 A2 Colonia San Felipe. Both full-service, buffet-style restaurants are opening on the heels of the company's first location in Validad los Nogales, which opened in April 2009.
"We're excited about our continued expansion into Chihuahua," said Charlie Morrison, CEO of Pizza Inn Inc. "It is a pleasure to provide our freshly made from scratch pizzas, pastas and other popular menu items to the local residents at affordable prices."
The new restaurants provide customers with a variety of specialty and traditional handcrafted pizza, pastas, salads and desserts in a dine-in buffet format with delivery and carryout. The company popularized a unique thin crackery crust that is made from scratch everyday and has since become the signature product offering. Pizza Inn is also known for its assortment of Pizzerts(R), a dessert pizza, as well as local pizza flavors available to consumers at their request. Over the years product offerings have expanded but the company's commitment to the highest quality ingredients, the friendliest service and affordable pricing have remained unchanged.

"We are pleased to have brought Pizza Inn's family traditions to our guests here in Chihuahua," said company owner and operator Agustin Terrazas. "These new restaurants offer a great dining ambiance and quality products that start with our special-recipe dough, made from scratch daily and rolled by hand to produce the freshest, best tasting pizza every time."
