Customers love our pizza with homemade dough made fresh.” In every store, every day, 100% full-fat mozzarella that’s been shredded in-house, and the chance to garnish it with a variety of freshly cut toppings.The truth is, many people in this region remember Pizza Inn as a poignant experience that’s part of their childhood.That’s why we bring back Our updated look and buffet-style business model to the markets we once thrived in, such as the Sherman-Dennison area. We are attracting these fans and capitalizing on our ‘brand equity’ in these communities.”
Adds Solano, “Our healthy product line of new stores shows that this strategy works. We’ve always focused on really good food, real value, and convenience—and people remember that. They also remember and miss the experience of enjoying an abundant buffet of quality food, where everyone can eat whatever they want and no Anyone has to wash the dishes. This is what makes us a place for people of all ages to come together, relax and celebrate together.”

He adds, “Our new restaurant has a ballroom with TV and a playroom for kids big and small that looks like the old gold mine in Cher Din Mall. If you grew up in the area, you will remember. You will remember too. Watch the bars on the platform that were demolished last year as you walk out of the restaurant Finally, since I was a 1990 Sherman Bearcat, we’ve had Bearcats memorabilia decorating the walls.”
