SALT LAKE CITY—Gift Check Solutions announced it has been selected by Pizza Inn to provide gift certificate services for the company's 440 restaurants.
According to a news release, Gift Check Solutions will manage the coordination, printing, and shipping of gift certificate orders to participating Pizza Inn franchisees in 20 states across the country.
"With over 400 locations, and the potential for future growth, Pizza Inn needed a gift certificate solution that was easy to manage and scaleable," said John Bechard, president of Gift Check Solutions. "Our franchise-friendly gift certificate program makes it simple for stores to order and deposit certificates, while making it easy for Pizza Inn's customers to redeem the gift certificates throughout Pizza Inn's network of stores."
Gift Check Solutions' gift certificate program allows stores to receive the benefits of non-redemption and allows franchisees to use their existing bank account to simplify gift certificate reconciliation. In addition, the program does not require the franchisee to pre-pay for the face value of gift certificates, and franchisees can include redeemed certificates with daily deposits. Each gift certificate from Gift Check Solutions is magnetic ink character recognition (MICR) coded and works just like a check, which simplifies the tracking and accounting of the gift certificates. The certificates also employ Micro Print signature lines, fluorescent fibers, chemical voids and watermarks.
The program also allows Pizza Inn customers to redeem their gift certificates at any Pizza Inn location, regardless of where the gift certificates were purchased.
