Noble Roman’s Inc., the Indianapolis-based, non-traditional pizza franchisor, is partnering with The Pantry Inc., a leading convenience store operator in the Southeast, for a pilot program featuring Noble Roman’s branded foodservice system. The Pantry is headquartered in Cary, N.C., and has more than 1,650 locations in 13 states. The pilot program will begin with a first location inside a
Kangaroo Express, The Pantry’s primary operating banner, in Raleigh, N.C., during 2012’s first quarter.
With a tradition of “quality customers can taste” dating back to 1972, Noble Roman’s pizza-focused foodservice systems for convenience stores are recognized within the industry as affordable, productive and easy to operate. Recognizing the current and growing popularity of pizza, and knowing the keys to successful foodservice in convenience stores, The Pantry chose Noble Roman’s as their partner in this pilot program, a news release says.
Noble Roman’s is known for its pizza and breadsticks, as well as its menu of products ideal for foodservice within convenience stores and other venues—items ranging from a breakfast line-up to pasta, wings, subs and more. Operators of Noble Roman’s franchises are encouraged to customize the scope of their menus based on their specific objectives. In addition, Noble Roman’s has authorized its convenience store operators to begin merchandising the company’s take-n-bake pizza program.
