Pizza Inn Franchise Opens New Restaurant in Lumberton, North Carolina, Continues Growth of Texas-based Pizza Chain

July 28, 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 1962 Roberts Avenue in Lumberton, N.C. The new location also offers carryout and serves as the company's first traditional drive-thru in North Carolina.

With 37 restaurants now open and operating throughout North Carolina, Pizza Inn continues to target the state as part of a national expansion initiative that has revitalized the chain.

"As we continue to grow our brand and open new restaurants in various markets across the country, we are thrilled to offer customers in Lumberton our freshly made pizzas, pastas and other popular menu items," said Charlie Morrison, CEO of Pizza Inn. "We are confident that this new location will exemplify the high operational standards we set for all of our locations."

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 Lumberton restaurant is owned and operated by Scottish Food Systems, Inc., a restaurant management company that owns seven other Pizza Inn locations and 27 Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurants throughout North and South Carolina. The North Carolina-based company, whose Conway, South Carolina restaurant was recently recognized as Pizza Inn's Restaurant of the Year, is actively seeking real estate for additional locations in southern North Carolina.

"The popularity of Pizza Inn continues to grow with every new location we open throughout the state," said Tom Broome, President of Scottish Food Systems. "Customers in Lumberton are in for a one-of-a-kind experience that is unmatched by other pizza concepts in the area."

Pizza Inn is seeking single- and multi-unit franchisees to help grow the company's network of restaurants in the region.
