Reinvesting in employee training, improved food quality, and more efficient supply chains are all viable options to strengthen an underperforming quick-service restaurant. But before any outward changes can take root, the core of the business must be unified, and several businesses are finding that a better internal culture can lead to better results.
For 13 full weeks, from October 2 through January 3, Pizza Patrón is bringing back two of its most popular LTO ‘Favoritas’ pizzas currently not on the menu. The LTO combo includes La Toluqeña and La Choriquezo, two large specialty pizzas based on traditional Mexican recipes for just $16.99 at all Pizza Patrón locations.
Over the past century, Americans have developed a special craving for certain foods, both at home and in restaurants—items like burgers and fries, sandwiches and fried chicken.
And then there’s pizza. One of the nation’s most beloved meals, pizza is the sum of varied parts: crust, sauce, cheese, meat or other proteins, vegetables, and the baking style. All are important, but the toppings are the real ingredient that gives customers and operators alike room to play around with new flavors.
Andrew Gamm, brand director for Pizza Patrón, the Mexican pizza chain, revealed the secrets to making a cultural connection that result in sales to a packed house at the Hispanic Retail 360 on Wednesday, August 13, 2014.
A large pepperoni pizza will soon cost less than a fast-food burger or sub sandwich at Pizza Patrón. The Mexican pizza chain will roll out $3.99 large pepperoni pizzas every Monday through Wednesday for a limited time.
Pizza Patrón announced its first and second quarter total sales in 2014 blew past expectations and are up 5.6 percent versus the same six-month period in the prior year. This historic mark was achieved with 14 percent fewer locations.
In 2013, Pizza Patrón closed 20 locations as part of a strategic effort to strengthen its business for the long term. In the first half of 2014, the company completed five additional closures and opened six new restaurants for a total of 91 stores, including the opening of the first two company-owned locations in Texas.
Pizza Patrón, the Mexican-themed pizza chain, opened a new location at 240 Patton Street in Houston, Texas. This is the fourteenth location in Houston for the chain, and the restaurant will operate under the leadership of Bravo Pizzas, which now owns a total of seven Pizza Patrón locations.
Pizza Patrón has opened its second corporate-owned store at 526 E. Pipeline Road in Hurst, Texas.
The carryout location is open Sunday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Fridays and Saturdays from 11 a.m. to midnight.
“We are experiencing double-digit comp sales this year and expanding our footprint in key growth markets,” says Victor Vazquez, business development manager for Pizza Patrón. “This success is a testament to the strength of the Pizza Patrón brand and business model.”
Pizza Patrón, the Texas-based Mexican pizza chain, fired up taste buds, the media, and global conversation with its recent limited-time pizza offer, La Ch!#gona. As a result, the La Ch!#gona campaign lit up the 2014 U.S. Hispanic Idea Awards held at the Eden Roc Renaissance in Miami Beach, Florida, winning Best PR Campaign.
Pizza Patrón has introduced the Pepperoni Mexicano, which is made from beef, pork, a proprietary blend of spices, and is infused with a jalapeño.
Customers will also have the option of ordering any recipe that contains regular pepperoni and replacing it with Pepperoni Mexicano for free, including the company’s Favoritas del Patrón line of specialty pies. Additionally, guests can create custom pizzas using Pepperoni Mexicano, which was developed exclusively for Pizza Patrón by Tyson Foods.
