New Eagle Boys store opens every 19 hours

Written on the 26 June 2009

Australia’s third largest pizza maker Eagle Boys Pizza will open one new store every 19 hours during the last eight days of the financial year, capping off 12 months of strong store growth and sales.

Between 22 and 30 June 2009, Eagle Boys will open 10 new stores across the company’s Standard, Micro, Local and Express store models. The new stores are located in Queensland, New South Wales, and Western Australia.

It comes as Eagle Boys expects to overtake Pizza Hut as the nation’s second biggest pizza chain within the next 12 months. The company is on track to have 400 stores operating by 2011.

Eagle Boys Pizza Managing Director Todd Clayton said a revamped pizza menu had helped spur double-digit year-on-year sales growth in recent weeks.

“In the current market, pizza has proven to be recession-proof. Today, Australian families are looking to feed the family without breaking the bank. They are eating out at restaurants less, but still want to enjoy a quality meal,” he said.

“There are very few food retailers featuring quality menu options that will feed a family for under $20 like Eagle Boys can. Our pizzas are not only bigger than our competitors, but we also use better ingredients to make our pizzas and pizza lovers have started taking notice.

Mr Clayton said inquiries from people interested in becoming Eagle Boys franchisees had grown significantly during the past six months.

“Eagle Boys has been operating for more than 22 years and experience has also shown us that during tougher economic times we actually have an increase in inquiries from potential franchisees. This is because it is during these times that there are people looking to invest their redundancy money or people wanting to take control of their financial future by establishing their own franchise business.”

Eagle Boys Pizza was named the nation’s 2008 Supreme Retailer by the National Retail Association and received the Best Franchise award for the second consecutive year.

Eagle Boys Pizza is one of Australia’s largest pizza makers and is 100% Australian-owned. It operates more than 275 franchised stores throughout Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria, South Australia, Western Australia, and the Northern Territory, employing more than 4,000 staff and making more than 16 million pizzas a year.
