In 1958, two Texas brothers opened the first Pizza Inn in the heart of Dallas. As word spread of the restaurant’s exceptional pizza and friendly service, so did Pizza Inn locations. Customers couldn’t wait to get their hands on the made-from-scratch, crispy, crackery Original Thin Crust and tangy signature sauce that are hallmarks of our brand to this very day.

But it’s more than pizza that makes a perfect franchising opportunity. Sure, we’re a food service brand, but we’re much more than a food service provider.You might even say there’s a buffet of reasons to get on board:


Our customer base responds to Pizza Inn’s reliable model, with each of our restaurants featuring pizzas from the menu or the buffet, pastas, salad bars, and signature desserts.


We introduced the Taco Pizza in 1979, the first dessert “Pizzert” pizza in 1986 and our hallmark Bacon Cheeseburger Pizza by the 1990s. And with a new All Day Buffet, Pizza Inn is poised to bring even more excitement to the industry.


Community involvement matters. Our franchisees are active members of their communities, often acting as one of their town’s primary leaders and fundraisers. Our customizable, company-wide programs also make it easy to make a difference.


We offer professional site selection, construction assistance, comprehensive training and nearly 60 years of experience by your side.

Pizza Inn is growing faster than ever, and knowing the ins and outs of each brand can be hard to swallow, even for us sometimes. This handy sheet will help you better understand the various slices that make up Pizza Inn.
