THE COLONY, Texas — Pizza Inn will begin a two-month celebration beginning in July to mark the company's 50th anniversary.
The series of promotions will kick off with a variety of special offers, including a 50-cent medium one-topping pizza with the purchase of any large three-topping, Signature or Max pizza at regular price. Customers also will be able to play "Pizza Bingo," where they can win a free large one-topping pizza with a bingo blackout.
Some Pizza Inns will redecorate their stores in a 1950's motif, complete with music, special offers and activities for the kids.
The chain also will reintroduce "Jo Jo" — its original pizza-tossing, moustache-wearing mascot in a promotion called "Moustache Mondays" beginning in August. During Moustache Mondays, customers sporting a moustache — real or fake — will be given $1 off any adult buffet purchase or $2 off any medium large or giant pizza purchase (dine-in or carry-out) each Monday in August. Moustache stickers will be provided to those not quite capable of generating a moustache, officials said.
Other activities and events will be announced by the chain during the course of the promotion.
