The Nick-N-Willy’s Franchise Company has announced the new ownership of its Vancouver, Washington, restaurant by local residents, John and Dianne Foster. The restaurant is now owned and operated by the husband and wife team whose dream has always been to open their own pizza franchise in their hometown.

The Fosters have plans to promote year-round pizza community activities, promotions, and fundraising initiatives to attract and retain customers while supporting their community in a meaningful way.

“We always imagined ourselves owning a family-run business that offered superior tasting pizza and was supported by a proven franchise system," says John Foster, owner of Nick-N-Willy’s in Vancouver, Washington. “We absolutely believe in the Nick-N-Willy’s brand, so when the opportunity came up to partner with them at this location, we jumped at the chance.”

The Fosters have more than 10 years of expertise managing businesses in the areas of transportation and hospitality in Florida and Oregon. They believe that their prior experience will play a key role in helping them to achieve success with their Nick-N-Willy’s franchise.

The new owners will continue to serve the full Nick-N-Willy’s menu in their newly upgraded fast-casual restaurant. They will also continue to provide take-n-bake pizza, delivery, plus they’ll be offering a new catering menu. The Fosters also expect to add beer and wine to their menu in the next few months.

Several promotions are currently available to mark the new ownership, including an “All You Can Eat” pizza lunch for $5 from 11 a.m.–1 p.m. Monday to Friday, “1/2 Price Wings” on Mondays and Tuesdays, and “2 Topping Tuesdays”, when all medium two-topping pizzas are just $7.

In the past few weeks, the Fosters have already made commitments to support fundraising initiatives for the Boys and Girls Club and the local Little League Baseball Association. They’re also hopeful that other local nonprofit organizations will take advantage of the Nick-N-Willy’s VIP fundraising card program. Cards are sold for $1 each with a suggested resale price of $10 each, allowing organizations to make a $9 profit on each card.
