Mill Creek, WA (April 14, 2015) – Garlic Jim’s Famous Gourmet Pizza, the first and only gourmet carry-out and delivery pizza chain is expanding into the San Antonio, Texas market. On April 28, 2015, San Antonio, TX franchisees Jon Gustavson and Dave Heinze will open the doors to San Antonio’s first Garlic Jim’s store, in the Richland Hills area of NW San Antonio.
Gustavson and Heinze decided to open a Garlic Jim’s franchise after extensive research. “Garlic Jim’s offered us the flexibility of a startup company and the best pizza we’d ever eaten. It was an easy decision,” said Gustavson. “I’m excited to be offering the best pizza in America to the people of San Antonio.”
“We are thrilled to be expanding into San Antonio,” said Dwayne Northrop, CEO, Garlic Jim’s. “The franchise group we’re working with is expanding our vision for ‘Gourmet, Right Away!’ to include 5 minute lunch meals and our new personal size Neapolitan pizzas – made while you wait! This new take on our signature concept is exciting and we look forward to working with them to ensure that the people of San Antonio experience the gourmet goodness of Garlic Jim’s pizzas!”
The Richland Hills Garlic Jim’s is the first store in the chain to offer made-to-order personal size Neapolitan pizzas in 5 minutes. Customers will be able to watch their individual pizza being made right in front of them as they custom select their favorite toppings. The store will also offer Garlic Jim’s award-winning gluten-free pizza. Since 2008, customers have been raving about the amazing taste of Garlic Jim’s delicious gluten-free pizza. Gustavson and Heinze are excited to offer this gluten-free pizza to the people of San Antonio. “I believe that there is a tremendous demand for gluten-free pizza in our area and I know that everyone is going to love our take on it,” said Gustavson. “The gluten-free market is a group of people who haven’t had good pizza in a very long time and I’m glad we’ll be able to serve them with a gourmet touch.”
The Richland Hills, TX store is located at 8802 Potranco Road, Suite 111. It will be open every day from 11 am – 11 pm. For more information, contact the store directly at 210.521.JIMS (5467).

Garlic Jim’s in-store system and team member training allows them to make pizza in 15 minutes or less “from order to out the door,” thus pioneering the concept “Gourmet, Right Away.” Garlic Jim’s new focus allows for made-to-order Neapolitan individual pizzas in only five minutes.
At Garlic Jim’s the term ‘gourmet’ signifies more than just the finished pizza – it refers to the finest ingredients: fresh packed sauces, fresh whole-milk mozzarella and fresh dough made daily, where the customer can certainly taste the difference. Garlic Jim’s offers customers three crust choices; hand-thrown thick, made with parmesan cheese and buttermilk, garlic thin and gluten-free; four cheese options: whole-milk mozzarella, cheddar, feta and grated parmesan; seven sauces: classic red, garlic basil, basil pesto, zesty chipotle pesto, creamy ranch, smokin’ sweet BBQ or olive oil, and a variety of meats, vegetables and gourmet toppings such as roasted garlic, artichoke hearts, roasted corn and sun-dried tomatoes.
With gourmet pizzas such as Nutty ChipotleTM, zesty chipotle pesto topped with spicy sausage, pepperoni, red onions, tomatoes and cashews, Jim’s Gourmet GarlicTM, basil pesto sauce, marinated artichoke hearts, roasted garlic, sun-dried tomatoes and feta cheese, and Chicken Bacon Ranch, grilled chicken, bacon, cheddar cheese, tomatoes, red onions and creamy ranch sauce, Garlic Jim’s is putting a new spin on pizza. “We’ve gone out of our way to source the best ingredients available to create our specialty pizzas and as a result we also have the best tasting pepperoni pizza you will ever find,” says Northrop.
