THE COLONY, Texas, Sept. 25, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Pizza Inn Holdings, Inc.
(Nasdaq:PZZI) today announced results for the fourth fiscal quarter and fiscal
year ended June 30, 2013. Fourth quarter net income decreased to a loss of
$0.7 million compared to a loss of $0.1 million for the same quarter of the
prior fiscal year. The decline in fourth quarter net income as compared to the
prior year quarter was primarily attributable to a non-cash impairment charge
of $0.8 million. The non-cash impairment charge related to two Company-owned
Pizza Inn restaurants, one of which will close in the second quarter of fiscal
2014 when its lease expires, and to one Company-owned Pie Five restaurant that
opened in 2011 and will be relocated to a new site in the second quarter of
fiscal 2014.

"We continued to expand our Pie Five concept with the opening of another
Company-owned restaurant and the opening of our first franchise restaurant
during the fiscal fourth quarter," said Randy Gier, President and Chief
Executive Officer. "We also awarded three additional multi-unit franchise
development agreements during the fourth quarter and another four franchise
development agreements so far in the current quarter, bringing the total
potential development in executed franchise agreements up to 108 Pie Five
restaurants. Two more franchise restaurants have opened in the current quarter
and we expect an acceleration of franchise openings during the remainder of
fiscal 2014. Each of our Pie Five franchisees is expected to have at least one
restaurant open by the end of our current fiscal year ending in June 2014, and
several of our franchisees have already executed leases for their second

Franchisees are typically required to open their first restaurant within six
to nine months of the signing of their development agreement. "It's
encouraging to see the time and energy that has been put into the concept
coming to light as our franchise partners begin to break ground and operate
Pie Five restaurants across the country," added Gier.

Compared to the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012, Company-owned restaurant sales
increased 24% to $2.3 million in the most recent quarter due primarily to new
Pie Five store openings. Noted Gier, "Five of our initial Pie Five
company-owned restaurants have been open more than 18 months. In the
aggregate, these restaurants are performing with positive year over year sales
trends despite one of the stores being negatively impacted by road
construction. Through the first twelve weeks of the current quarter ending in
September, these five stores have same store sales increases of approximately
3%, and approximately 7% excluding the store impacted by road construction."

"We are particularly excited about the performance of our new Pie Five
stores," continued Gier. "In the past eighteen months we have opened seven new
Company-owned Pie Five restaurants.Two of those restaurants are college
campus locations that serve a more captive audience and experience highly
seasonal sales trends.The other five restaurants, including two openings in
the current quarter, represent sites that are our core focus as we move
forward, and each of those five restaurants is generating weekly sales
consistently in excess of the system average.With this success, we will
continue to develop the Dallas-Fort Worth market while also beginning to
develop sites in Houston for our second Company-owned market," added Gier.

The fourth fiscal quarter and fiscal year 2013 had 14 and 53 weeks,
respectively, as compared to 13 and 52 weeks in the prior year periods.Fourth
quarter franchise revenues increased $0.1 million, or 7.6%, as compared to the
prior fiscal year primarily due to increased fees from franchise agreement
renewals and the additional week in fiscal 2013. Because the franchise
development fees received from Pie Five franchisees are not recognized until
their restaurants open, the fiscal fourth quarter of 2013 included a
relatively small amount of franchise revenue related to Pie Five.Fourth
quarter food and supply sales decreased by approximately $0.3 million, or
3.8%, as compared to the prior year primarily due to a 4.3% decrease in total
domestic franchisee retail sales as the result of a decrease in both the
average number of stores open and same store sales, which effect was partially
offset by sales during the additional week in fiscal 2013. Fourth quarter
general and administrative expenses increased $0.1 million primarily due to
higher costs associated with the continued growth of the Pie Five concept.

"While the reduction in Pizza Inn franchise store count earlier in fiscal 2013
continued to impact the year over year trends, the rate of franchise store
closures and comparable store sales trends both moderated towards the end of
the year and have improved further in the first quarter of fiscal 2014," said
Gier."As a result of the closure of lower-revenue stores, the average revenue
per franchise store in operation today is higher than it was at the same time
last year and sales trends have improved."

"We are encouraged by the improving trends and relative stabilization of the
Pizza Inn business, and are working very closely with our franchise leadership
to continue making changes to our product quality, improvements in our
operational consistency, and shifts in our marketing focus to further improve
the trends on this very important brand," concluded Gier.
