Origin Display Group Inc., a supplier of indoor, outdoor and digital menu boards, has begun the rollout of digital menu boards for all nine of Home Run Inn's Chicago-area pizzerias, according to a company announcement. Thus far, Origin Elite, powered by SmarterSign, has been implemented at their Melrose Park and Beverly locations with the other restaurants to follow shortly, the company said.

Home Run Inn began in 1923. Its namesake came from a game-winning homerun from a nearby baseball game that sent a baseball crashing through the front window of Mary and Vincent Grittani's newly purchased tavern. In the late 1940's, Mary and her son-in-law Nick Perrino began making homemade pizzas in the Home Run Inn kitchen. Slicing the pizzas into small square-shaped pieces, they served it fresh, hot and free to bar patrons. Home Run Inn now has nine family-owned Chicagoland pizzerias and a full line of premium and additive/preservative-free frozen pizzas that are sold in more than 25 states, and the Perrino family still actively guides Home Run Inn Pizza with Nick's son, Joe Perrino, as the CEO.

This was not Home Run Inn's first experience with digital signage. They came in contact with Origin Displays when searching for an alternative due to the content management frustrations they had been dealing with in an earlier install, the announcement said. With all of their locations in mind, they wanted a system where they could manage their multiple units dynamically from any computer with Internet access. In addition, Home Run Inn Pizza was looking for an intuitive system where it would be easy to update and promote the various specials they run, highlight their community involvement, as well as advertise their catering capabilities and social media presence, the company said.
