Pizza King has been successful because of the people who are willing to put in the long hours and make sure that we live up to our motto: "a smile in every bite."
Pizza King has always been a family-owned and family operated business. Hal Inman's father "Peck" joined the team when Bill closed the Pizza King in Tyler in the mid 1970's and moved his family down to Austin.
In 1996, Hal and Wanda Inman handed over the day-to-day operations to their three children: Hal Inman III, Lisa Knight, and Tracy Alford. Collectively these three, and long time coworker John Wilson, have close to 100 years of experience making sure that our customers really do get to enjoy the "Best Pizza In East Texas."
In 2021, The Inmans sold the business to another Longview family. They continue to operate Pizza King as a family business with many of the same employees and the same secret recipe since 1965!
As the business continued to grow, the kitchen became so crowded that staff barely had room to breathe. The dining room and the to-go line were packed! The Inmans made plans with Noah's Construction Company, to begin building a new restaurant. The new building doubled the size of the dining room and tripled the number of ovens!

Customers often mention the old location and talk about it with fondness--even when they talk about waiting in line to use the restroom out back on a Friday night!
