New Pizza Inn ownership comes full circle

By LYNDA STRINGER

Nathan Crouch is the new owner of the Pizza Inn franchise in Pittsburg, the company announced recently. Crouch’s purchase of the restaurant on North Greer Blvd. brings him back to a community that has special significance for his family.

The location was originally built and opened by his father, Joe Crouch, who got started in the pizza business in the mid-1990s when he bought the Pizza Inn location in Sulphur Springs.

“When he got that going well, he built this location. He purchased the raw land and built the building in 1998, so this location was our second franchise,” said Crouch, who helped his father open the restaurant back then while he was in college at Texas Tech.
