2009 Continues to Be Up Year for Nation’s #1 Latino Pizza Brand

According to a news report from www.franchising.com, “Pizza Patrón, the premier Latino pizza brand, announced today that systemwide comparable sales increased 6.4 percent in March, which comes on the heels of increases of 10.5 and 7.9 percent in March and January, respectively.”

“We are strategically positioned to do well despite the economy,” said Andrew Gamm, director of Brand Development for Pizza Patrón. “Much of last year was spent finding areas to reduce costs in our operations so we could avoid passing on any price increases to our customers, and it is now paying off,” said the story. “Although Pizza Patrón has been credited with creating the country’s first chain of Latin-focused pizza restaurants, the company is experiencing tremendous success among non-Hispanics who live in the communities where stores are located. Antonio Swad, founder of Pizza Patrón, is featured on the cover of Chain Leader this month. The cover story, “Know Your Audience: Pizza Patrón Caters to Hispanics,” emphasizes the fact that the chain’s unique focus and value proposition has a broad appeal, not only with Hispanics, but with people of every race and ethnic heritage.”
