Pizza Patrón franchisee acquires chain

January 10, 2017

A Pizza Patrón Inc. franchisee has purchased the Hispanic-oriented chain from founder Antonio Swad, the company said Monday.

Charles Loflin of San Antonio, a Pizza Patrón franchisee since 2003, and the largest Wingstop franchisee, said the deal closed on Dec. 22. Terms were not disclosed. Pizza Patrón has 92 units.

“The Hispanic consumer is the fastest-growing consumer [demographic] in the United States of America, and we feel like we have a niche that will appeal to that consumer,” Loflin told Nation’s Restaurant News. 

Loflin said Pizza Patrón headquarters will move from Dallas to San Antonio.
