KUWAIT. Pizza Inn today announced the signing of a multi-unit development agreement to open 20 new Pizza Inn restaurants in Kuwait. Pizza Inn, famous for its made-from-scratch crusts, has awarded a master licence agreement to the Raja Group based in Kuwait City, in a continuation of the brand's expansion throughout the Middle East and into Asia.

The Raja Group of Companies (formerly known as Raja Trading Establishment) is led by Chairman Waleed Adulla Ayoub, Managing Director Rohit Mirchandani and Director Mohit Mirchandani. Established in 1962, Raja specialises in the region's petroleum, construction and energy industries in addition to marketing, logistics and food and beverage services.

"We are excited and proud to partner with the Raja company in Kuwait," stated Ward Olgreen, Senior Vice President of Worldwide Franchising for Pizza Inn. "The passion and business experience that Waleed and Rohit bring to the partnership, combined with our brand experience in the region, will make us a very formidable team."

"This is an exciting time for our company and for Pizza Inn. Our goal is to take the brand to new heights throughout Kuwait," stated Rohit Mirchandani. "We're convinced customers will love Pizza Inn in every city where we open."

The new partnership with the Raja company will also utilise the support services of United Food Company, Pizza Inn's master licensee for Saudi Arabia and Qatar. United Food Company will serve as the training hub for Pizza Inn restaurants in the region.

"As a company that has been franchising internationally for over 30 years, Pizza Inn has significant experience in supporting new master licensees with development and operational support in addition to supply chain management. With our Norco Restaurant Services Division at our side we have the flexibility to fully support any new franchise, regardless of location," stated Olgreen.
