Pizza Inn, Inc. Reports Results for the First Quarter Fiscal Year 2007

PIZZA INN, INC. today reported a net loss per share for its first quarter ended September 24, 2006 of ($0.10) versus a net loss of ($0.05) per share for the same quarter last year. The quarter resulted in a net loss of ($1,061,000) versus a net loss of ($490,000) for the same quarter last year on revenues of $12.0 million and $12.9 million, respectively.

   *  Comparable buffet restaurant sales decreased 0.9% for the quarter.
      Chain-wide comparable restaurant sales decreased 1.8% for the quarter.
   *  Total chain-wide domestic restaurant sales decreased 6% for the
      quarter due to the decrease in comparable restaurant sales and a net
      reduction in franchised restaurants.
   *  The Company's revenues decreased approximately 7%, or $863,000,
      primarily due to lower chain-wide restaurant sales, as discussed
      above, and lower cheese prices.  The resulting reductions in food and
      supply sales and royalty revenue were partially offset by increased
      restaurant sales at company-owned restaurants as a result of the
      opening of three additional company-owned buffet restaurants in fiscal
      year 2006 and increased franchise fees from the opening of new
      international and domestic restaurants.
   *  During the quarter the Company incurred $540,000 of legal fees, as
      compared to $615,000 in the prior year, which is reflected in general
      and administrative expenses.
   *  During the quarter the Company incurred non-cash stock compensation
      expense of $42,000 as compared to $103,000 in the prior year, which is
      reflected in general and administrative expenses.
   *  During the quarter the Company incurred a $410,000 provision for
      litigation costs for the Company's potential liability related to
      outstanding litigation, which is broken out separately in the
      statement of operations.

The Company's President and CEO, Tim Taft, commented, "We recently began outsourcing distribution services and passing on the cost savings to franchisees through lower product prices, which we believe will improve franchisee economics without compromising the Company's profitability. We believe that these initiatives will help us achieve our goal of reinvigorating the Company's growth, and we are continuing to see early signs of improving trends through significant increases in franchised restaurant remodels and a growing development pipeline of new franchised restaurants."
