Pizza Inn started in 1958, when two Texas brothers opened the first Pizza Inn in Dallas. To celebrate 60 years of service, the brand known as “America’s Hometown Pizza Place” is giving away a 1958 Ford Fairlane Skyliner hard top convertible to one of its lucky Pizza Inn Rewards members.
"We are proud to have served so many loyal fans over the last 60 years and want to give back something extra special,” says Denise Pedini, executive vice president of Pizza Inn. “It’s our way of saying thank you for being a part of our family for 60 years.”
On September 23, a winner will be chosen by an independent third party out of a random draw of all current Rewards members. Customers are encouraged to sign up for Pizza Inn Rewards to have the opportunity to win the 1958 Ford Fairlane Skyliner.
The classic car will be touring across the country to specified Pizza Inn locations from May through September. The tour kicks off on May 4 in Durham, N.C., and will visit cities including Wilson, N.C., High Point, N.C., Goldsboro, N.C., Rocky Mount, N.C., Knoxville, Tenn., Murfreesboro, Tenn., Greeneville, Tenn., Spartanburg, S.C., Greer, S.C., Brunswick, Ga., Baxley, Ga., Pickens, S.C., Shelby, N.C., Frankfort, Ky., Paducah, Ky., Sikeston, Mo., Poplar Bluff, Mo., Grenada, Miss., Greenwood, Miss., Monticello, Miss., Franklinton, La., Lewisville, Texas, Snyder, Texas, Big Spring, Texas, Hobbs, N.M., Carlsbad, N.M., Muskogee, Okla., and Duncan, S.C.
