INDIANAPOLIS, IN / ACCESSWIRE / October 19, 2020 / Noble Roman's, Inc. (OTCQB:NROM), the Indianapolis based franchisor and operator of Noble Roman's Pizza and Noble Roman's Craft Pizza & Pub announced today that its newest company-owned Craft Pizza & Pub restaurant located in Greenwood, Indiana had first week net sales at just under $60,000, which was the highest opening volume so far of any company-owned and operated unit.
According to Scott Mobley, President of Noble Roman's, 'We are extremely grateful for the fantastic reception the residents of Greenwood and the surrounding areas have shown Noble Roman's Craft Pizza & Pub. Despite all the complicating factors brought on by the current pandemic, our opening week of sales came in at $59,550, which was well in excess of our expectations for these difficult times.'
Mobley went on to say that the new layout used at Greenwood was highly effective at meeting several improvement objectives. Said Mobley, 'Our version 2.1 layout allowed us greater ability to handle sudden high-volume periods with significantly improved service times from a production standpoint. Our new dedicated Pizza Valet curbside carryout service entrance and our new waiter/waitress prep station both contributed to improved service as well. And we did all of this in over 600 square feet less space than the 1.0 model. We still have some refinements to make based on our experience with Greenwood, but the version 2.1 layout clearly enhances service and reduces occupancy costs at the same time, while still allowing us to accommodate record opening volume levels.'
Scott Mobley went on to comment on the difficult operating circumstances the company continues to work through as a result of COVID-19 saying, 'We are so happy to be able to bring Noble Roman's to the greater Greenwood area, even under these circumstances. We received emails and comments from guests thanking us for bringing a small piece of normality to their lives. Something as simple as great pizza and breadsticks can add a little fun to the day, and that is what Noble Roman's Craft Pizza & Pub is all about. Our staff has been amazing as well; they've worked so hard under uncomfortable pandemic restrictions and I'm truly proud of their efforts. From the newest hourly team members to the restaurant management team to the corporate staff - everyone gave 110%. Without all of that effort and sacrifice under difficult circumstances, opening these new restaurants would not be possible.'
The newest Noble Roman's Craft Pizza & Pub restaurant is located in Greenwood, Indiana at the intersection of State Road 135 and Stones Crossing Road and serves Greenwood, Bargersville, Whiteland, Center Grove and the surrounding area. The Greenwood Craft Pizza & Pub is another company owned and operated location, and opened for business on Monday, October 12th. In November, the company anticipates opening another franchise Craft Pizza & Pub location in Kokomo, Indiana and yet another company-operated location in McCordsville, Indiana.
