GRANVILLE, Ohio — Patrick Quinn, president of Zeno's Pizza of Granville, Ohio, has announced that he's taking his Internet gateway for online pizza ordering nationwide.
To use the Zeno's Pizza ordering system, customers can visit the Web site, ZenosPizza.com, and type in their location information. After selecting carry-out or delivery options, Zeno's links them to the pizzeria closest to them, or they can choose other area shops affiliated with Zeno's. The pizzeria's entire menu in the form of a shopping cart appears.
Customers then order and pay with a credit card on the Web site. Other payment options are in the works, including a Zeno's Pizza Card. The pizza location then receives a fax with the paid order within 1.5 minutes, says Quinn. Customers can pick up their order or have it delivered if the local pizzeria offers delivery.
Zeno's Pizza currently has a handful of locally owned, independent pizza shops signed up in the central Ohio area, but Quinn says the regional company soon will undergo a major national expansion.
Earlier this month, the company engaged the firm of Sales Resource Group of Memphis, Tenn., and Portland, Ore., to sign on small, independent pizzerias across the nation.
