Pizza Inn, America’s Hometown Pizza Buffet, announced the opening of its newest location in Blackwell, Oklahoma. The new Pizza Inn at 1004 W. Doolin Ave. is owned and operated by local Blackwell business leader, Tony Nemer. Nemer is a former Pizza Inn franchisee who returned to the hometown brand because of its new store concept, strong sales performance and continued menu innovation.
“Pizza Inn is the ultimate hometown brand, known for its outstanding reputation, high-quality ingredients and an inviting setting for its guests,” explains Nemer. “The value of our all-day buffet is unmatched, offering a wide variety of pizzas, pastas and salads, along with dessert favorites like our signature Chocolate Chip Pizzert. I’m looking forward to opening more locations throughout the state,” Nemer added.
The Doolin Avenue location will reflect elements of Pizza Inn’s refreshed brand look, including the new logo and iconic mascot, Jojo. Along with vibrant artwork and revamped decor, it will also feature Pizza Inn’s new sundae bar only available at select restaurants.
“Tony is rejoining Pizza Inn at a time of growth and evolution for the brand,” says Brandon Solano, CEO of RAVE Restaurant Group. “Our rebranding efforts paired with strong same-store sales increases have primed the company for expansion. The new restaurant in Blackwell, alongside the other openings planned for Oklahoma, are setting the stage for an exciting 2023 and beyond,” Solano adds.
Unlike your typical buffet, Pizza Inn crafts its pizzas with house-made dough, made from scratch each morning. Each pizza is made with high-quality ingredients, including 100% house-shredded whole-milk mozzarella cheese and freshly chopped garden vegetables to top a variety of crust types found on the buffet, including the new Cheese-Filled Pretzel Crust, House Pan, Italian and the original thin crust. Guests can enjoy fan-favorite toppings such as pepperoni, sausage and extra-cheese pizzas alongside specialty pizzas, including the Bacon Cheeseburger, Taco and the wildly popular NYXL pizzas.
