Pizza Inn Holdings, Inc., an international pizza chain recognized for serving a variety of fresh, popular traditional and specialty pizzas, is expanding with its ninth restaurant in Houston, Texas, opening October 6 at 12805 Cullen Blvd.
The restaurant is a franchise location operated by local entrepreneur Brian Iwuh. Earlier this year, Iwuh opened his first Pizza Inn restaurant at 14708 Hiram Clarke Rd., and plans to open several additional locations in the coming years.
Iwuh, an experienced operator with multiple retail and restaurant concepts in the Houston area, made the decision to join Pizza Inn thanks in part to fond memories of eating at the chain during his childhood.
"I grew up with Pizza Inn and have so many great, nostalgic memories of eating here with my family," Iwuh says. "We used to go all the time when I was a kid, and now, as an adult, I hope to bring the same great experience to my guests, while continuing to grow the brand in Houston."
With a menu ranging from signature pizzas and sandwiches to zesty wings and Pizzerts, Cullen Boulevard. Pizza Inn features an assortment of affordable dining options. The menu also offers an assortment of flavors from local favorite Hank's Ice Cream.
"As a Houston native, it's important to me that I offer local favorites like Hank's. It's a great product and the perfect treat after pizza," Iwuh says.
Pizza Inn at 12805 Cullen Blvd. is open 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 11 a.m. to midnight on Friday and Saturday.
