Nation’s #1 Latin Pizza brand targets Hispanic growth in Atlanta market

ATLANTA — May 7, 2010 — Pizza Patrón’s new franchisee Armando del Bosque is photographed for a story in the May 7th edition of the Atlanta Business Chronicle newspaper, which caters to the business community in Atlanta. He is dressed in full Pizza Patrón regalia as he holds up a slice of a Patrona pizza.

The story features pizza chains that have entered the Atlanta metroplex in recent months and how each one is different from the rest. Pizza Patrón, which opened the first store on April 20th in Doraville, plans to open many more this year the story goes on to say. Pizza chains like Pizza Patrón focus on segmented markets and want to be part of the local community. The story also explains how many consumers in this down economy are turning to cheaper meals for their families and pizza is fairly inexpensive to make. “The Latino population will continue growing and that will allow us to keep growing,” Pizza Patrón president Guillermo Estrada said. ” We get to a point where we have a lot of stores in Dallas or Houston, but the Latino population keeps growing, so we keep growing. The nation’s [largest] minority is growing and we are at the forefront of this shift.”
