THE COLONY, Texas -- Pizza Inn, Inc. will unveil its newly redesigned Pizza Inn Express concept at the National Association of Convenience Stores (NACS) show, October 17-20 in Las Vegas.
According to a news release, the new Express concept features a simplified menu that reduces opening and operating costs, and reveals an open design that allows customers to better view menu items. The new concept can be purchased, installed and operational within four to six weeks in existing convenience stores or other non-traditional locations.
"We are very excited about these improvements in the operating system as well as the lower investment requirements for our new Express concept," said Pizza Inn CEO Ronald Parker. "We expect a strong level of interest from c-store operators."
Pizza Inn currently has more than 70 express locations.
The new concept was designed by Darren Sumrall of Dallas-based GHA Architects.
"This new Express concept better meets the needs of both the customer and the operator," said Michael Iglesias, Pizza Inn vice president of franchise development. "It is not only more visually appealing, but also affordable and easy to maintain. And the NACS show provides an ideal time to introduce this concept since we plan to focus on implementing it in convenience stores."
