Pizza Inn Inc. announced the opening of its newest location in the Oasis Mall in the Kingdom of Bahrain.

The new restaurant is the company's 70th location in the Middle East and first of 12 slated for Bahrain.

"We're excited about our expansion into Bahrain, as well as our continued growth throughout the Middle East," says Charlie Morrison, CEO of Pizza Inn Inc. "It is a pleasure to provide our freshly made pizzas, pastas, and other popular menu items to the people of Bahrain at affordable prices."

In a continuation of the brand's expansion throughout the Middle East, Pizza Inn entered into a Master Licensee agreement with United Food Company, a subsidiary of Abdullah Abunayyan Group. United Food Company, which also controls the master licensee rights for Saudi Arabia, Oman, Qatar, United Arab Emirates, and rights throughout MENA, will oversee development of 12 total units in the Kingdom of Bahrain. Bahrain sub franchisee Buena Vista Food W.L.L. will develop and operate the restaurants.

"United Food Company is proud to be Pizza Inn's partner to bring the brand to Bahrain," says Khushru Mistry, CEO of United Food Company. "We think the product and the brand are exceptional and we're looking forward to successful growth of the concept not only within the Kingdom, but throughout the MENA region."
