GLENPOOL, OK — In the latest of several eagerly-anticipated new store launches, Simple Simon’s Pizza of Beebe (AR) has enjoyed a record-setting week since opening on Tuesday, June 6th.
Simple Simon’s Pizza of Beebe has logged the most productive first three days of business for any new location in the over-30-year history of the Oklahoma-based pizza brand. This strong start follows on the heels of a similar big opening for the brand in Berryhill (OK) just last month.
Tuesday’s opening day started with a bang as nearly 100 patrons began lining up hours early for their chance in a drawing for 25 “Free Pizza For A Year” prizes. Store traffic has remained strong from open to close ever since, as customers are treated to all the Simple Simon’s menu staples, including “The Original Calizone” and the brand’s iconic Supreme Pizza.
“There’s been a lot of anticipation from our perspective regarding the Beebe opening, due to the high level of social media activity and employment inquiries received the past few weeks at our corporate office,” said J&H Foods CEO B.J. DuMond. “It was clear that the people of Beebe were really excited to have a Simple Simon’s Pizza coming to town, and they’ve proven it by turning out in such great numbers this week.”
Simple Simon’s Pizza of Beebe is owned and operated by Jim and Cidney Vaughan, and is located at 1650 W. Dewitt Henry Drive in Beebe, AR.
“Jim and Cidney Vaughan have operated franchise units at a high level in our system for almost 20 years, so we’ve been confident from the start of this project that the Beebe store would not only be a very successful location in terms of sales, but would also be a shining example within our system of how to build a fantastic facility from the ground up, and how to staff and run it properly,” said DuMond. “We just couldn’t be happier for Jim and Cidney that their store has gotten off to such a great start.”
Simple Simon’s Pizza of Beebe is a new building construction inspired inside-and-out by the floor plan and decor of the brand’s corporate training store in Glenpool, OK. For dine-in customers, the store features a large pizza and salad buffet for lunch Sunday through Friday, and a Family Night Buffet on Tuesday evenings. Customers can utilize the convenient drive-thru window for picking up call-in orders and orders placed online via either their desktop or laptop computers, or through the Simple Simon’s Pizza app for Android or Apple mobile devices.
The Beebe store joins a growing list of new store openings for Simple Simon’s Pizza this year, including locations open now in Berryhill (OK); Bonners Ferry (ID); Girard (KS); Seminole (OK); Council Hill (OK); and Little (OK), and coming soon to Fort Smith (AR); Siloam Springs (AR); Mt. Juliet (TN); and Coffeyville (KS).
