In recent years, the company has been exploring expansion via non-traditional locations, such as hospitals, sports arenas and convenience stores. At the beginning of 2012, the company signed a deal with The Pantry, a 1,650-unit convenience store chain, to open locations in those stores. In addition, the company has begun offering take-and-bake pizzas in its restaurants and is selling them in more than 800 grocery stores.
