Gurdeep Bains and TJ Dhaliwal are now running the daily operations at a location of Pizza Factory in Rio Vista, California, according to a press release.

After being introduced to Pizza Factory, the duo of local entrepreneurs “fell in love with its family-oriented principles and customer-facing culture,” the release states. They already owned Pizza Factory locations in Valley Springs and Winters, California, before taking ownership of the Rio Vista store on July 10. To improve the overall dining experience, they plan to install a new salad bar and introduce beer on tap at the location.

“Our entire team at Pizza Factory Rio Vista is eager to continue building upon the brand’s reputation and maintain the location’s stance as the go-to spot within the community,” Bains said. “We’re committed to delivering the gold standard of customer service to our guests, and we have an amazing team behind our daily operations. I’m confident that we are leading with our best foot forward going into this venture and look forward to the future as we work to leave a lasting impact.”

Located at 201 Main Street, the restaurant has been a staple within Rio Vista for years. Bains and Dhaliwal knew the location held significance in the community and wanted to ensure the brand remained there. Giveback efforts at the store include hosting weekly senior nights on Monday evenings and a $14.99 large pizza special on Tuesday.

Pizza Factory has locations in more than 100 towns and has opened eight new stores thus far in 2023, with three more slated to open by the end of the year. In addition, Pizza Factory ranked on the 2023 Franchise Times Top 400 of the largest brands in franchising for the fifth consecutive year.

“We could not think of anyone better than Gurdeep to make an impact on the community in Rio Vista,” MJ Riva, CEO of Pizza Factory, said. “His passion and drive for entrepreneurship has been incredible, and I’m looking forward to watching the team carry out Pizza Factory’s ‘awesome’ mission.”
