Pizza Patrón Signs Agreement for Eight San Antonio Units

Pizza Patrón, the No. 1 Latino pizza brand, has executed a development agreement with SA Pizza, Inc. to bring eight more stores to the San Antonio area within the next 31 months.

Long-time, successful partners with Pizza Patrón, SA Pizza, Inc. is owned by an exceptional operator that has been with the chain for nine years.

The franchisee was the first to open stores outside the original Dallas/Fort Worth market and is also a two-time recipient of the Patrón of the Year award, which symbolizes exemplary dedication to customer satisfaction, passion for the community, and brand leadership. 

“This franchise partner is a fine example of the success that can be had with hard work and dedication to the Pizza Patrón system,” says Victor Vazquez, franchising manager for Pizza Patrón. 

“They are an award-winning operator and have continued to be on the cutting edge with new store models,” he says. “They built the first stand-alone Pizza Patrón model in 2008, the Quick Service Pizza (QSP), and then followed with the very first Double Drive-thru store earlier this year.”

SA Pizza, Inc. has an exclusive development agreement for the San Antonio market with seven locations currently open and one under development, in addition to the eight-store development agreement just signed.

“We love serving the communities here in San Antonio and look forward to making our brand more accessible to new neighborhoods around the city,” says Chris Partyka, partner with SA Pizza, Inc.

Pizza Patrón makes its signature dough from scratch in every store daily. The pizza sauce starts with fresh-packed, crushed Roma tomatoes and marinates for at least 24 hours with the company's secret blend of spices and herbs.  

Some of the menu items the new store will feature include large lista (ready, no waiting) pepperoni pizzas for $4.99 every day, QuesoStix, Fiesta Wings, Patrón Dips, and large specialty pizzas like La Toluqueña (pepperoni, ham, and chorizo) starting at $6.99 every day.

Pizza Patrón is headquartered in Dallas with 104 locations in seven states and more than 80 under development, the company locates in predominantly Hispanic neighborhoods. 

Franchise opportunities, offering a proven system for hard-working franchisee candidates, are available in prime Hispanic markets throughout the country. 

Pizza Patrón units require an all-in investment of $199,300–$464,000 per store with a franchise fee of $20,000.
