Stevi B’s pizza buffet concept offers specialty pizzas such as Mac ‘n Cheese or Killer Baked Potato, along with the more traditional. Units seat 144 to 200 and sport a big game room, attracting a family clientele. Purchased last year by Argonne Capital, an IHOP franchisee, Stevi’s re-branded with a new logo. This year’s challenge has been finding lenders for franchisees, says Franchising Sales Director Melissa Farlin.
