Pizza Inn, known for made–from–scratch crispy, crackery Original Thin crust and tangy signature sauce, has collaborated with Punchh, to offer guests an innovative app-based loyalty program. Guests can earn points for their purchases while enjoying the ease and convenience of ordering through the Pizza Inn website on the new "Pizza Inn Rewards" app. The program is currently in 41 locations.
"The Pizza Inn Rewards program is another way for us to reward our most loyal guests," says Bob Bafundo, president of Pizza Inn, Inc. "We have so many enthusiastic fans who dine with us multiple times a week and our new rewards program will allow us to show our appreciation. Just like the new tagline and logo update, the rewards program will play a significant role in attracting the next generation of Pizza Inn fans."
With the new rewards program, Pizza Inn customers will be offered the option of a free Medium Chocolate Chip Pizzert or five Pepperoni Twists upon joining. After eight visits and at least $9 spent per visit, they will have an option of a free Adult Buffet or Large, up to 3-topping, pizza. Customers can also rate their experience and post it to social media along with viewing restaurant store hours and special events each restaurant is having.
"Consumers expect to engage with their favorite restaurant brand across any channel any time for loyalty, ordering, and other interactions,” says Shyam Rao, CEO, Punchh. "Using the Punchh-powered Pizza Inn Rewards program, we look forward to helping Pizza Inn engage loyal customers, transform them into brand advocates, and attract the next generation of new customers that will drive sales."
In 1958, two Texas brothers opened the first Pizza Inn across from the Southern Methodist University in Dallas. As word spread of the restaurant's exceptional pizza and friendly service, so did Pizza Inn locations. In no time, taste buds across the country were able to experience the made–from–scratch crispy, crackery Original Thin crust and tangy signature sauce that are still hallmarks of the Pizza Inn brand today. Pizza Inn continues to be a leader in pizza innovation through new menu additions like introducing the Taco Pizza, the first dessert "pizzert" pizza, and the chain's hallmark bacon cheeseburger pizza.
