    Industry News | July 20, 2007
    Pizza Patron, Latino pizza brand, announced today its second quarter sales for this year have increased 27.2% versus the same period a year earlier. This represents the fourth straight quarter of double-digit same store comparative sales increases for the brand.

    Since launching its "Pizza por Pesos(TM)" promotion earlier this year, the company has seen a tremendous amount of new traffic in its stores. Although the company received widespread criticism for the program, customers have shown support where it counts most-with their wallets.

    "We are very excited about what we are seeing in our stores," said Andrew Gamm, director of Brand Development for Pizza Patron. "We have always believed in our hearts that if we make a meaningful commitment to serve the community, the community, in turn, will support our business."

    Today, Pizza Patron operates 65 locations in the United States with aggressive expansion plans for the next 5 years. The company plans to continue growth through franchise distribution, partnering with qualified owner/operators who are committed to serving the Latino-Hispano community in their area.

    "Needless to say, I am thrilled with our recent sales achievements," said Antonio Swad, founder of Pizza Patron. It is a result of both a committed management team and excellent execution by our franchisees at the store level.

    Comp sales in our industry seems to be the only measuring stick that matters, but the true test is how well you are meeting the needs our your core customers. I am looking forward to that challenge in the quarters ahead."
