Momentum Continues for Nation's #1 Latin Pizza Brand

DALLAS, TX--(Marketwire - October 23, 2009) - Pizza Patrón, the premier Latin pizza brand, announced today same store comparable sales increased 3.63 percent in September. The company was helped by strong sales of their medium-sized AMIGO PIZZA™ and its industry-low retail price structure.
