Nation’s favorite hometown pizza joint begins expansion
Dallas, TX (RestaurantNews.com) JoJo is at it again. Pizza Inn, the international pizza chain with a local hometown feel, opened its newest location today in Oklahoma City, OK. The new buffet and delivery location is owned by franchise owner, Allen Odetallah, who also operates three additional locations in Oklahoma.
“Pizza Inn has renewed energy and it’s exciting to see this great brand expanding again,” said Randy Gier, CEO of Pizza Inn parent Rave Restaurant Group, Inc. “Throughout its 50-year history, Pizza Inn has prided itself on creating made from scratch dough along with fresh sauces and toppings. This new location will be a great addition to that tradition.”
The new Pizza Inn is located at 9101 N Council Road in Oklahoma City, OK. It will be open from 11:00 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 11:00 p.m. to 11 p.m. on Friday and Saturday.
“Pizza Inn is America’s small town pizza chain and I’m thrilled to be opening Oklahoma City’s new favorite pizza buffet,” said local franchise owner, Allen Odetallah. “Pizza Inn is a nostalgic brand known for hosting its share of birthdays, soccer parties and family gatherings and we look forward to continuing that tradition.”
In 1958, two Texas brothers opened the first Pizza Inn across from the 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 were able to experience 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.
