America's Incredible Pizza Corporate Statement


Davenport, Iowa…America's Incredible Pizza Company (AIPC) today
confirmed that its lease on E. Kimberly Road is terminated and the
Davenport location has officially closed.
The decision to close the Davenport location was the result of a
business dispute between external forces, says AIPC founder and CEO,
Rick Barsness, and does not reflect AIPC's commitment to the
surrounding community.

"We love Davenport. We are grateful for the support of our customers
here and have always been proud to serve them. It was not our decision
to close. Unfortunately, our hands were tied," said Barsness. "We hope
that families will come and play with us at our nine remaining

Refunds will be issued for deposits made for group events and birthday
parties. Game cards will be honored at other AIPC locations including
Urbandale, outside of Des Moines, the closest to Davenport. No cash
refunds for game cards will be given. Employees affected by the
closing are being offered jobs at other locations.

"Of course we are disappointed with this outcome, but we are also
excited about the many changes taking place within our organization,
including the opening of our newest location in St. Louis later this
December and our rebranding efforts that will propel the company's
growth," says Barsness.

AIPC's rebranding strategy includes the opening of the St. Louis
location by year's end, new games and attractions at AIPC's remaining
nine locations, more valuable family deals, "Incrediblizers" for a
better experience, brighter storefronts, friendlier website and
enhanced marketing efforts.

Customers with questions regarding deposits for group events or about
game cards are asked to contact Nikki Tunnell at 417-890-1408 or email
