“Our winning partners do an exceptional job of bringing Pizza Patrón’s brand promise of ‘Más Pizza. Menos Dinero.’ to life each day,” said Andrew Gamm, Pizza Patrón brand director. “The word ‘Patrón’ means ‘the benevolent leader of the community’ and each of these partners exemplifies that spirit in their commitment to serving quality pizza, friendly bilingual service and community involvement.”
The Patrón Awards featured a newly designed trophy this year. Pizza Patrón Inc. commissioned a custom sculpture from Inspired Bronze, tasked with creating the incarnation of the company’s “El Patrón” icon.
Since 1986, Pizza Patrón has been committed to making its promise of “Más Pizza. Menos Dinero.” a reality for every customer. From the beginning, the brand has been recognized for its ‘fresh-dough’ pizza, its low prices and its trademark “friendly, bicultural service.” In 2007, the company drew international media attention with its PIZZA POR PESOS program when it began accepting Mexican Pesos at all of its restaurants. In 2012, the company’s PIZZA POR FAVOR promotion that gave free pizzas to anyone who ordered in Spanish sparked international news coverage and lively debate throughout the U.S. Today, Pizza Patrón is the nation’s premier Latino pizza brand and remains dedicated to bringing its unique experience to life with every pizza made, and in every community it serves.
