DALLAS and FORT WORTH, Texas, May 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The economy may be lagging, but Papa Murphy's Take 'N' Bake Pizza franchise owners Denise Barnett, Alex Overcash, and Angelo Chantilis say business is up.
It's going so well, in fact, that two new stores are celebrating Grand Openings this weekend, Thursday, May 30, through Sunday, June 2. Ms. Barnett, who opened her first Papa Murphy's in Saginaw in 2008, is celebrating her second location at 4614 SW Loop 820 (near Hulen & I-20, in the Overton Plaza shopping center). Business partners Alex Overcash and Angelo Chantilis are celebrating the Grand Opening of their first Papa Murphy's location, in Pantego at 1607 S Bowen (SE corner of Park Row & Bowen).
"We're excited to expand our business into pizza, especially in the Take 'N' Bake category. There's nothing like the quality of Papa Murphy's Pizza, and our customers are very loyal," said Alex Overcash.
Both stores are offering quite a deal in celebration of their big Grand Opening weekend. From Thursday, May 30, through Sunday, June 2, you can buy a Large Signature Pepperoni Pizza at either of these two new locations for just $6. There will also be fun Grand Opening activities at both locations including FREE snow cones while supplies last and a 'spin the wheel' game with prizes.
"I'm very excited to bring Papa Murphy's to this neighborhood of Fort Worth and introduce our quality pizzas to a new set of customers," said Ms. Barnett. "Papa Murphy's Pizzas are handmade in stores using the freshest ingredients, and then baked in the comfort of your own home. It's the perfect meal for busy families who don't have a lot of time to cook – but still want to gather together at dinnertime."
"We opened our first Papa Murphy's because we believed so much in the product. It has been a great boost to the local economy and has given us the opportunity to train high school and college students on business and work ethics. Our customers find great value in our menu items and feel better about feeding their families with such fresh products."
