Pizza Inn Opens New Restaurant in Knoxville, Tennessee

Continuing Growth, Franchise Veteran Brings First of Three Locations to Area

June 07, 2010 // Franchising.com // The Colony, Texas – Pizza Inn, Inc. (NASDAQ:PZZI), an international pizza chain recognized for serving a variety of fresh, high quality products at affordable prices, announces the opening of its newest buffet-style restaurant at 5420 Clinton Highway in Knoxville, Tennessee. The new location offers buffet, carryout, delivery and catering.

With nine restaurants now open and operating throughout Tennessee, Pizza Inn continues to target the state as part of a growth plan that has revitalized the chain.

"As we continue to grow our brand in various markets across the country, we are thrilled to bring our freshly made pizzas, pastas and other popular menu items to Knoxville," said Charlie Morrison, CEO of Pizza Inn. "We are confident that the folks here are just as excited as we are about Pizza Inn returning to the city."

For more than 50 years, Pizza Inn has provided consumers with a variety of specialty and traditional handcrafted pizzas, 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. Over the years the menu has expanded, but the company's commitment to the highest quality ingredients, the friendliest service and affordable pricing have remained unchanged.

The Knoxville restaurant is owned and operated by veteran franchisees Jamey and Missi Brown, who own one other Pizza Inn location in Tazewell, Tennessee. Boasting more than 25 years of experience with Pizza Inn, the Brown's also serve as the multi-unit developer for the Knoxville area.

"There are numerous pizza concepts in the marketplace, but there is one significant difference. Pizza Inn stands above the rest when it comes to freshness and quality," Brown said. "I couldn't be more excited about bringing Pizza Inn's products to Knoxville."

In an effort to further increase national and regional growth, Pizza Inn is seeking single- and multi-unit franchisees to help grow the company's network of restaurants in the region.
