Pizza Patron’s story starts back in 1986 with Antonio Swad, who is of Italian and Lebanese origin, and Bernadette Fiaschetti, who is of Irish and Italian origin. They opened their first restaurant in Texas, United States. Antonio Swad and Bernadette Fiaschetti also founded the Wingstop brand, which they sold in 2003 to focus on developing the Pizza Patron business.
In 2016 Pizza Patron was purchased by Charles Loflin, who is also the new CEO of the company.
In 2017 the company’s slogan was changed from “Mas Pizza. Menos Dinero” to “Pizza Like A Boss”.
Pizza Patron went through an entire brand relaunch in 2018 with the aim to appeal to a younger client base. They changed the logo to a more simplified version in Mandarin/teal red colors. Their logo features El Patron with a dashing mustache, who wears a fedora hat. Before that, the logo was represented only by the fedora hat.
In 2020 Pizza Patron launched its mobile app in order for the customer to order their favorite meals online.
Currently, there are more than one hundred Pizza Patron restaurants located mainly in the Southwest area of the United States, in states such as Texas, Colorado, Arizona, Illinois, and California. The chain has most stores in neighborhoods with a high percentage of Latino residents.
As you would expect, the Pizza Patron menu includes a wide variety of pizzas, drinks, desserts, and sides. Some of the pizza specials include the Spinach Classico, La Patrona, La Vegetarina, La Hawaiana, La Mexicana, La De Carnes, and Chicken Bacon Clasico. For the sides, you can choose between the Ranch, pollito chicken, and Lime-N-pepper.
An individual would spend less than $15 for a great meal at Patron Pizza. Depending on the type, the price of non-alcoholic beverages would be anywhere between $2 and $4, with options such as Gatorade and Aquafina water. Also, you should try their desserts for a complete dining experience. One of the customers’ favorites is the Dulce de Leche Churo, which costs around $4 per piece.
Pizza Patron restaurants tend to be busy at all times even though some customers complained about the poor hygiene in some locations.
