Pizza Inn's popular traditional and specialty pizzas are now available in Lebanon, Ky., for takeout or delivery through an agreement with Flash Market Convenience stores.
The newest Pizza Inn delivery/carryout location is part of a franchise agreement that will place similar Pizza Inn locations in select Flash Market stores throughout Arkansas and Tennessee.
Flash Market stores are owned by the Patterson family, who also feature Subway, Quiznos, Baskin Robbins and Dairy Queen franchises in their convenience stores and travel plazas.
“We wanted to upgrade our existing pizza programs to include a quality brand name with a menu that offers a fresh-made dough product,” said Shane Patterson, whose family members are lifelong residents of Marion, Ark. “After reviewing several brands, Pizza Inn was an easy choice. And the Pizzerts [pizza desserts] have become a family favorite.”
Patterson said the company plans to open up additional Pizza Inn locations in coming months.
“This is a tremendous opportunity to introduce Pizza Inn to new customers,” said Charlie Morrison, CEO of Pizza Inn. “The Patterson Family has a long history of success with high profile franchise brands and we are excited that Pizza Inn will now be able to play a part in the success.”
