Pizza Patrón opens in Katy, TX

Nation’s #1 Latin Pizza brand adds another location to Houston market

KATY, TX — March 7, 2011 — Pizza Patrón celebrated the opening of its 11th location in Katy, TX on March 7th. The restaurant is located at 5803 N. Fry Road, Katy, TX 77449, between W. Little York and Clay Road. This is the 3rd store location for owner/operators Tony and Joe Ponce de Leon that form the group Pizzas Sin Fronteras, LLC.

The new drive-thru restaurant features Pizza Patrón’s hallmark Latin design motif which includes a vivid color palette and music that resonates with energetic and festive cultural influence. The site provides great visibility, giving the brand thousands of extra daily impressions. The company was also able to incorporate its trademark parapet façade, a standard component of its free-standing QSP™ (Quick Service Pizza) locations, into the shopping center structure, making the store stand out even more.

The carry-out store is open from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday, and 11 a.m. to midnight Fridays and Saturdays. Call-in orders can be placed by dialing (281)-858-9494.

“Introducing our brand to a new community is always exciting,” said Andrew Gamm, brand director for Pizza Patrón. “We know if we work hard and provide great food and friendly service, there’s no one that can match us on value.”

The new store will feature the brand’s famous everyday values like the 12-inch medium AMIGO PIZZAS® that start as low as $4 and X-Large LISTA-NOW READY™ pepperoni pizzas starting as low as $6 all day, every day.

The lease for the building was negotiated by Marsha Schneider of RTS Real Estate Services. For more information, call (972) 698-7900.

Approximately 93 percent of Pizza Patrón restaurants in the U.S. are owned and operated by franchisees. Pizza Patrón plans to have 750 stores nationwide within a decade.
