You might be familiar with the Mr. Jim’s slogan, “It’s the crust” Mr. Jim’s is widely known for their crust. Their hand stretched pizza dough is made fresh in store daily. Recently, Mr. Jim’s has been testing a different kind of advertising, Mr. Jim’s Pizza started using mini mailer flyers that include coupons that you may have noticed in your mailbox. Gire mentioned that sales alone this summer have increased by 15%. He thinks that the mini mailer flyer advertising has been the trick. There are currently over 70 Mr. Jim’s locations in Louisiana, Texas, North Carolina, and Wyoming. In 1975 the first Mr. Jim’s Pizza was opened in Detroit, MI.
