In August, Pizza Patrón launched a promotion that will run through Oct. 1st in which customers can purchase a large pepperoni pizza for less than a fast food burger or sub sandwich -- only $3.99 every Monday through Wednesday. Today, the company announced that the campaign is already proving to be the most successful promotion of 2014. Smashing records, store comparable sales have increased 18 percent per store per week during the first four weeks of the campaign.
Company officials say the lower-than-low price was designed to grab attention and drive new traffic to the stores during the pizza business' challenging summer season. The campaign is generating new traffic and has not cannibalized existing business on non-promotion days, says Andrew Gamm, brand director for Pizza Patrón.
"We are extremely happy with this campaign as it has driven excellent traffic during a time of year that is typically slow in our business," said Gamm. "We believe this is the strongest offer of the year in the pizza industry and customers still have a few weeks to take advantage of it."
The Pizza Patrón $3.99 promotion is available to customers every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday until October 1st and is good only on carry out pizzas, with no limit on purchases. All Pizza Patrón locations in the U.S. are offering the promotion, which represents a significant savings over Pizza Patrón's everyday highly-competitive value proposition of $6 for a large, one-topping pizza.
"We are happy to prove our hunch that having a deal less than five bucks would put us on customers' deal radar. Nothing makes us more excited than winning over new Pizza Patrón customers. It is the end game," said Gamm.
Since 1986, Pizza Patrón has been committed to making its promise of "Más Pizza. Menos Dinero.®" a reality for every customer. From the beginning, the brand has been recognized for its 'fresh-dough' pizza, its low prices and its trademark "friendly, bicultural service." In 2007, the company drew international media attention with its PIZZA POR PESOS® program when it began accepting Mexican Pesos at all of its restaurants. In 2012, the company's PIZZA POR FAVOR™ promotion that gave free pizzas to anyone who ordered in Spanish sparked international news coverage and lively debate throughout the U.S. Today, Pizza Patrón is the leading Mexican pizza brand in the U.S. and remains dedicated to bringing its unique experience to life with every pizza made, and in every community it serves.
