Pizza Inn announced a major franchise agreement with Blessings Basket Company for Serving Food to substantially expand its footprint in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The 50-unit deal will kick off with the opening of the first two locations in January 2024.

This expansion marks another significant milestone in Pizza Inn’s international growth strategy. With more than 110 restaurants in the United States and 19 in international markets, Pizza Inn is one of the world’s most recognized pizza brands, known for its commitment to bringing a unique blend of flavor, convenience and value to pizza lovers across the globe.

“We are excited to announce our partnership with Pizza Inn for Saudi Arabia and have full confidence that together we will further establish the brand as a household name across the kingdom,” says Mohammed Al-Rubayan, CEO of Blessings Basket Company. “The team at Pizza Inn have been incredible partners throughout this process, and our shared commitment to excellence, passion for authentic pizza and dedication to creating memorable moments for our customers makes this collaboration special.”

Following its first two openings, Blessing Basket Company plans to debut five additional locations each year for the next decade in cities across Saudi Arabia. The restaurants will offer Pizza Inn’s signature menu of pizzas, pasta dishes, wings and famous Pizzerts®.

“Partnering with Blessings Basket Company to bring Pizza Inn to an even larger audience in Saudi Arabia is a great honor,” says Brandon Solano, CEO of RAVE Restaurant Group. We are confident Blessings Basket Company will bring our brand to life as we bolster our presence in the kingdom of Saudi Arabia and introduce Pizza Inn to new markets – serving up our something-for-everyone menu with the level of quality that has made us America’s Hometown Pizza Buffet, and a family favorite for more than 65 years.”
