Family-owned Home Run Inn has the rare distinction of taking on corporate giants in the frozen pizza industry and winning in some key markets, according to an article in the Chicago Tribune. The eight-unit pizzeria's frozen wares are actually the frontrunners in their hometown of Chicago, and even in Denver. Recently, the company has inked deals with Costco and even brought its own brand of wine to market.
From Chicago Tribune:
The restaurants are an important part of the business, making up 30 percent of Home Run Inn's revenue. They also serve as a marketing tool in Chicago for the Home Run Inn brand, Perrino said.
But growth lies primarily in frozen pizza, and Home Run Inn has done plenty of growing in recent years.
