Mill Creek, WA (February 15, 2015) – Garlic Jim’s Famous Gourmet Pizza, the first and only gourmet carry-out and delivery pizza chain announced today that an 80 store Area Developer Deal has
been signed for the state of Texas. The first store will open later this spring in San Antonio with several more openings planned for the remainder of 2015.
“I can’t express how excited we are to be expanding into Texas,” says Dwayne Northrop, CEO, Garlic Jim’s. “The Area Developers we’re working are expanding our vision for ‘Gourmet, Right Away!’ We’ve got several new ideas that we’ll be rolling out in the next few weeks that we know the people of Texas are going to love.”
New Area Developers Jon Gustavson and Dave Heinze decided to open a Garlic Jim’s franchise after extensive research. “Garlic Jim’s was the best pizza we’d ever eaten plus the Garlic Jim’s team has been so easy to work with,” says Gustavson. “We’re excited to be offering the best pizza in America to the people of Texas starting with our friends and neighbors in San Antonio.”
A distinct feature of Garlic Jim’s is its gluten-free pizza. Since 2008, customers have been raving about its amazing taste. Northrup says, “Our gluten-free pizza was carefully crafted to avoid the aftertaste and gritty taste of so many gluten-free products. It tastes so good that many people order it strictly for the taste and thinner crust. We know that Texans are going to love it!”

ABOUT GARLIC JIM’S
In the $40 billion dollar-a-year, highly competitive U.S. pizza industry, Garlic Jim’s Famous Gourmet Pizza is proud to be the first pizza franchise to focus on quick delivery pizza made fresh with gourmet toppings. 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.
Garlic Jim’s currently has locations in California, Colorado, Oregon, Texas and Washington. For more information on Garlic Jim’s pizza and franchising, visit their website at www.garlicjims.com, or call 425.948.7603.
