Figaro’s Italian Pizza, Inc. announced today that it has completed the previously announced acquisition of the 17-unit Nick-N-Willy’s chain of baked and take & bake pizzerias.

Nick-N-Willy’s started in Colorado in 1988. Today, it is known for the highest quality pizza, offered in nine states from Wisconsin to California.

Ron Berger, Figaro’s chairman and CEO, said today that he had been looking at acquiring the chain since 2001, wanting to add its gourmet pizzerias to the Figaro’s collection of top-quality pizza restaurants.

“We are so excited that we now own the No. 1 and No. 2 top quality take & bake brands,” Berger says. “And we seek other such brands, both take & bake as well as baked, as we grow our business. The acquisition complements our existing base of stores, in line with our strategy to grow top pizza brands.”

Figaro’s restaurants are located in nine U.S. States from coast to coast, as well as in three foreign countries. The company is based in Salem, Oregon
