Shakey's Pizza Celebrates the Opening of Its Newest Restaurant in Indio

INDIO, CA--(Marketwired - Aug 17, 2015) - An American icon for more than 60 years, Shakey's® Pizza is bringing its tradition of great food and good times to Indio. While the beloved pizza chain has been the go-to restaurant of choice for birthdays, anniversaries and team celebrations for decades, a special occasion is not required to savor Shakey's world famous tasty trio of thin crust pizza, crispy fried chicken and Mojo® Potatoes.

"It's always Shakey's time," says Anton Mahinda, owner of the new Indio location. "I grew up with Shakey's as have thousands of other people throughout Southern California. Sharing pizza, chicken and Mojos with family on a Saturday night, helping yourself to a quick weekday Bunch of Lunch®, or catching the game with friends at happy hour, Shakey's offers something for everyone," Mahinda adds.

"We were looking for a community with a vibrant, hometown feel and a strong family orientation to complement Shakey's Pizza's brand heritage, and the Coachella Valley was a perfect fit," says Nick Mayer, Shakey's Pizza CEO. "Everybody has a fond Shakey's story and, as the brand evolves, we want to give a new generation the opportunity to create great memories of their own in a unique restaurant that incorporates a lot of the local flavor," Mayer adds.

While the new Indio store, located at 82530 Highway 111, boasts modern amenities including an exciting new design, craft beers on tap, expanded salad bar, and lighter, health-conscious menu offerings, Shakey's has stayed true to its roots. Committed to quality ingredients and an exceptional guest experience, Shakey's pizza is created from daily fresh dough, signature sauce made from California vine ripened tomatoes, extra virgin olive oil, and non-GMO California Basil.

With a legacy of more than six decades and a multi-generational fan base that includes everyone from comedian and banjo enthusiast Steve Martin to pop sensation Katie Perry, Shakey's continues to serve the tastes of its ever-growing, cross-cultural customers.
