Pizza Inn Returns to Waycross

America’s Hometown Pizza Place opens fifth Georgia location

March 30, 2017 // // DALLAS - Pizza Inn, the fresh and innovative pizza restaurant with a local hometown feel, has returned to Waycross.

The new Pizza Inn buffet is located at 501 City Boulevard in Waycross and is operated by franchisee Jack Saussy and General Manager Tonya Dean.

“After nearly 16 years, Pizza Inn is excited to be back and serving the Waycross community,” said Saussy. “We look forward to building upon many years of tradition and once again making great pizza and great memories with the local community.”

The new restaurant - which marks the fifth Pizza Inn in Georgia - recently served a group of 200 local leaders, including the Mayor, City Manager, Fire Chief, City Councilmen and others.

The new Pizza Inn is open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Sunday through Thursday, and 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday. The restaurant also offers delivery, carry out and drive-thru options. The store phone number is 912.285.5642.

“It’s exciting to watch the legendary Pizza Inn brand continue its growth across the country,” said Pizza Inn President Bob Bafundo. “Jack and his team are already doing a great job of making their restaurant a gathering place for the Waycross community.”

In 1958, two Texas brothers opened the first Pizza Inn across from Southern Methodist University in Dallas, TX. As word spread of the restaurant’s exceptional pizza and friendly service, so did Pizza Inn locations. In no time, taste buds across the country experienced the made-from-scratch crispy, crackery Original Thin crust and tangy signature sauce that are still hallmarks of the Pizza Inn brand today. Pizza Inn continues to be a leader in pizza innovation through menu additions like introducing the Taco Pizza, the first dessert “pizzert” pizza and the chain’s hallmark bacon cheeseburger pizza.
