Nation’s favorite hometown pizza joint continues Mississippi expansion
Pizza Inn, the international pizza restaurant with a local hometown feel, will open its newest location Wednesday, August 3 in Pearl, Mississippi. The new Pizza Inn buffet is located at 190 Riverwind Drive and owned by Kevin Khambhati.
“Pizza Inn has been so well received in the surrounding communities and we can’t wait to open in Pearl,” said Khambhati. “Our new Pizza Inn is going to be a fun place to host team parties, birthdays and family dinners. With our made-from-scratch dough along with fresh sauces and toppings — we have so much to offer.”
The new Pizza Inn will be open from 11:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 11:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. on Friday and Saturday. Khambhati also owns Pizza Inn locations in Madison and Greenville.
“Pizza Inn has a long and rich history in Mississippi and it’s great to be adding new locations in this market again,” said Bob Bafundo, President of Pizza Inn. “Kevin is a very engaged owner and we’re excited to be partnering with him on on his newest location.”
In 1958, two Texas brothers opened the first Pizza Inn across from the Southern Methodist University in Dallas, TX. 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 menu additions like introducing the Taco Pizza, the first dessert “pizzert” pizza and the chain’s hallmark bacon cheeseburger pizza.
Founded in 1958, Pizza Inn is an international pizza chain featuring traditional and specialty pizzas, as well as freshly made pastas, sandwiches, and desserts. Pizza Inn was recently inducted in to the Pizza Hall of Fame by PMQ Magazine. Pizza Inn is a subsidiary of RAVE Restaurant Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: RAVE) based in Dallas. RAVE owns, franchises and supplies more than 300 Pizza Inn and Pie Five restaurants operating domestically and internationally. For more information, please visit www.pizzainn.com.
