For more than 60 years, Pizza King has prided itself on providing attentive customer service and premium ingredients in pizzerias across northeast Indiana. It continues that tradition with the opening of a fourth location in Fort Wayne at 9805 Illinois Road.
“This new location is one of the most modern and unique store designs in our entire company,” says Austin Prather, Pizza King director of marketing. “We wanted to give the community a dining room as beautiful as the community itself. The store features a brick wall facade, exposed ductwork and black ceilings. We also wanted to commemorate how we’ve grown through the years, by displaying custom artwork about our history and brand throughout the store.”
The family-owned brand has supply agreements with 50 independently owned stores in eastern Indiana. It delivers freshly made dough and other premium core ingredients to the stores daily.
Community members are excited about the newest pizzeria’s interior, with its classic red phones for dine-in orders and a striking wall mural filled with phrases and menu items unique to the brand, says Prather.
“We’ve had numerous residents leave us messages about how they got hooked on Pizza King during their time at Ball State University in Muncie. Many of these graduates have moved to this area now and are ecstatic to have a pizza brand they love within such close proximity.”
The menu will feature iconic Pizza King “Feast” specialty pizzas as well as submarine sandwiches, pastas, wrap-ups and salads. Dill-butter-brushed breadsticks are also a favorite item.
Traditional pizzas come with a thin, crispy crust, but there’s also a thicker, pan crust option. The Royal Feast Pizza, the brand’s most popular menu item for decades, features a special blend of pepperoni, sausage, mushrooms, onions and red and green peppers.
The Pizza King brand has focused on one goal over the decades, says Prather.
“We just want to serve the highest-quality products and give fast, friendly service.”
