Dallas, TX (RestaurantNews.com) Pizza Patrón, widely known for its PIZZA POR PESOS® program, announced the grand opening of its new high-profile standalone model. Located at 10121 Lake June Road in the Pleasant Grove community in Southeast Dallas, it will be the brand’s fifth location in the original neighborhood where it all began nearly 30 years ago.
The new 1200 sq. ft. standalone model is owned by company founder Antonio Swad and is part of the brand’s new freestanding retail strategy to raise its profile within the community and boost market share.
“We are very excited about this new restaurant model and the potential it represents for the brand,” said Antonio Swad, founder and president of Pizza Patrón. “This new store is strategically positioned directly between two of my other restaurants that are currently operating beyond capacity. My hope is that this location will provide some much-needed relief to the excessive traffic we are seeing at the other stores.”
The store is open from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday, and 11 a.m. to midnight Fridays and Saturdays. Customers can call their orders ahead by dialing 972-285-1300 and they can take advantage of the store’s convenient pick-up window.
A grand opening celebration will be held on site on Monday, September 14th between 6 p.m. and 8 p.m. Customers and friends can enjoy music, pizza sampling and other fun activities.
“Our focus for the past few years has been on making our business model as healthy as it can be,” said Swad. “Sales, AUVs and unit economics are stronger today than they have ever been. Pizza Patrón is positioned perfectly for successful growth over the next few years.”
