Long John Silver’s Restaurants, the largest quick service seafood restaurant chain in the US, has teamed up with southwestern pizza, pasta and sandwich chain Pizza Inn to open a co-brand restaurant in Whitley City.

Kirby Cordell has been named as the franchisee for the new freestanding 3,200 square feet facility.  “We are offering consumers a variety of menus with four different restaurants located in the same vicinity,” he said: “Consumer reaction has been very positive.”

The new restaurant will serve Long John Silver’s menu of batter-dipped fish, shrimp and chicken, as served in the chain’s 1,200 US outlets, alongside the Pizza Inn menu of a variety of pizza sizes, toppings, pasta and sandwiches.

Based in The Colony, TX, Pizza Inn franchises and services approximately 450 restaurants in 21 states, mainly in the Southeast, and additionally throughout the world.
