Pizza Inn Holdings, Inc. (Nasdaq:PZZI) today announced results for the third fiscal quarter ended March 24, 2013. Third quarter net income decreased to a loss of $0.4 million, or $0.05 per share, compared to net income of $0.1 million, or $0.01 per share, for the same quarter of the prior fiscal year. The decline in net income was primarily attributable to lower revenue earned from franchising, lower food and supply sales at Pizza Inn, higher costs related to the continued development of the Pie Five Pizza Co. concept and a loss on the sale of property in Little Elm, Texas when compared to the third quarter ended March 25, 2012.

Third quarter revenues decreased to $9.8 million in fiscal 2013 compared to $10.6 million in the prior fiscal year. Third quarter food and supply sales decreased by approximately $1.2 million, or 15.0%, in fiscal 2013 compared to fiscal 2012 due primarily to a 14.7% decrease in total domestic franchise retail sales as the result of a decrease in both the average number of restaurants open and same store sales. Compared to the third quarter of fiscal 2012, Company-owned restaurant sales increased 24.7% to $2.1 million in the most recent quarter due primarily to new Pie Five restaurant openings.

"Restaurant sales were heavily impacted by a weak start to the fiscal quarter," said Chief Executive Officer Randy Gier. "January was particularly challenging to the industry as consumers adjusted to the changes in their take-home pay resulting from the expiration of the payroll tax cuts and delays in federal income tax refunds."

"Pizza Inn sales performance has also been impacted by restaurant closings primarily as a result of non-renewals of expiring franchise agreements," said Gier. "We are moving forward with a stronger performing restaurant base operated by committed franchisees. We have been working with our Pizza Inn franchise leadership team to improve product quality and to develop marketing programs to promote our unique product offerings."

"We continued to expand our Pie Five concept with the opening of another Company-owned restaurant during the fiscal third quarter," said Randy Gier. "We are pleased with the sales performance of those restaurants that are now approaching the 18 month maturity window. On the franchise side, we awarded two additional multi-unit franchise agreements during the quarter, bringing the total to four awarded this fiscal year, providing for up to 38 Pie Five restaurants to be developed under these agreements. In April, our first Pie Five franchise location was opened in Holladay, Utah."

"We now have nine company-owned Pie Five restaurants operating in different types of trade areas across the Dallas - Ft. Worth market and several more in development. Our experience operating these restaurants has provided us with valuable learning to drive the success of future company and franchise restaurants as we accelerate into our next phase of development."

"We have identified the characteristics of our best performing sites and continue to elevate our product offering. Additionally, we continue to strengthen the team and solidify operating procedures to drive consistency, efficiency, and profitability," concluded Gier.
