NC Gets New Pizza Inn Locale
Pizza Inn's traditional and signature pizzas are now available in Pikeville, North Carolina. Franchise owner Tom Vail has opened the first Pikeville location at 110 South Goldsboro St.
"We're incredibly excited to welcome Pikeville to our restaurant family," says Charlie Morrison, president and CEO of Pizza Inn. "It's the perfect community for Tom and his team to serve up our signature pizzas and deliver quality food at incredible prices."
"When I looked at the Pizza Inn opportunity, we didn't have anything like it," Vail says. "I knew the community would want it too. We only have one other national restaurant franchise in our town, and it has been successful for 25 years."
Vail was right about the excitement. He had more than 150 resumes for 18 staff positions. With 2,100 square feet of space, large television screens, and Wi-Fi in the dining room, neighbors are buzzing.
The Pikeville Pizza Inn will seat 54 guests and will feature dine-in, carryout, and catering services. In six weeks, Vail's business will also begin serving the chain's breakthrough breakfast pizzas and other items to the morning crowd.
The Pikeville Pizza Inn will be open from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. on Friday and Saturday. Carryout orders can be placed by calling 919-709-4316.
