Company History[edit]

In 1958, two Texas brothers, Joe and R. L. Spillman,[1] opened the first Pizza Inn across from Southern Methodist University in Dallas.

On June 3, 2011 Pizza Inn launched a new sister restaurant in Fort Worth, Texas, known as Pie Five Pizza, that specializes in handcrafted pizzas ready in five minutes. [1].

Today, Pizza Inn operates 310 franchised stores and five corporate-owned stores in 12 countries, with several new stores scheduled to open in the next year. Pizza Inn is also popular in the Middle East.
