Pizza Patrón posted comparable sales increases each month of 2009 leading to a 4.15 percent second quarter increase over 2008. The company cited aggressive local marketing and cost containment as a critical component in driving sales growth. Also, a renewed focus on operations has improved efficiencies, eliminating waste and allowing Pizza Patrón to maintain its value-based menu pricing.
“Customers are under a lot of financial pressure these days, making for a very competitive marketplace,” says Andrew Gamm, director of brand development for Pizza Patrón. “We will continue to lead the way with incredible everyday values like our 12-inch medium Amigo Pizzas, which range from $4 for a one-topping pizza, $5 for two or three toppings, and specialty pizzas for only $6 each.”
“When you combine our unique Latin focus with a loyal and growing customer base and outstanding everyday food values for families, it’s clear that we have a very bright future ahead of us,” he said.
