Pizza Patrón Opens Unique New Store in Dallas

DALLAS–Pizza Patrón, the premier Latin pizza brand, announced the opening of its 26th Dallas/Fort Worth area location on July 29, 2009. The restaurant is located at 8928 E. RL Thorton Freeway Dallas, Texas 75219, off St. Francis and I-30, in front of a Wal-Mart.

The site is the first Pizza Patrón to be positioned along a major traffic artery with excellent highway visibility, giving the brand thousands of extra daily impressions. The company was also able to incorporate its trademark parapet façade, a standard component of its free-standing QSP™ (Quick Service Pizza) locations, into the shopping center structure, making the store st""and out even more.

The 1134 square foot carry-out restaurant features Pizza Patrón’s hallmark Latin design motif, which includes a vivid color palette and music that resonates with energetic and festive cultural influence.

The store is open from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday, and 11 a.m. to midnight Fridays and Saturdays. Call-in orders can be placed by dialing (214) 327-9191.

“We are excited about this new and very unique location,” said Andrew Gamm, brand director for Pizza Patrón. “The high visibility and high daily traffic densities will benefit all of our stores in Dallas and help to broaden our appeal in this market.”

The new store will feature everyday values like the 12-inch medium AMIGO PIZZAS™ which range from $4 for a one-topping pizza, $5 for two or three toppings and specialty pizzas for only $6 each.

The lease for the building was negotiated by Marsha Schneider of RTS Real Estate Services. For more information, call (972) 698-7900.
