Pie Five Bringing Revolutionary Pizza Concept to Houston

Nation's Leading Fast-Casual Pizza Chain Will Open First Area Location in Early 2014

HOUSTON - Sept. 26, 2013 // GLOBE NEWSWIRE // - You have to experience it to fully appreciate it. Pie Five Pizza is revolutionizing the pizza experience one customized pie at a time.

Soon, Houstonians will get their chance to order their own perfect personal pizza with all the fresh toppings they like, at one low price, baked to order and ready in less than five minutes. It's a bold new concept that originated in Dallas in 2011 and has been spreading like wildfire ever since.

Today, Pie Five Pizza announced that it will begin a major expansion of company-owned restaurants throughout the Houston area, with its first location slated for an early 2014 debut.

"Houston is the natural next step for Pie Five's expansion, now that we have a solid and rapidly expanding base of restaurants in the Dallas-Fort Worth area and more than 100 franchise units under contract in 11 states," said Chris Smith, vice president of operations for Pie Five Pizza Co., a subsidiary of Pizza Inn Holdings, Inc. (Nasdaq:PZZI). "It's not an exaggeration to say that we're changing the way people experience pizza, and I have no doubt our friends in the Bayou City will love what we're bringing to their area."

At Pie Five, guests can choose from more than a million combinations of handcrafted pizzas and a variety of specialty pie choices prepared in less than five minutes on one of four crusts. The rapidly expanding chain is capitalizing on growing consumer demand for fresh dining options and artisan pizzas in stylish environments without the wait.

Pie Five has been named a 2013 Top 50 Restaurant Brand of the Year, a 2012 Hot Concepts winner by Nation's Restaurant News and one of "10 Hot New Restaurant Chains from Established Brands" by Forbes.com. Pie Five's CEO Randy Gier was named one of the 2013 "Top 10 Trendsetting Executives in Pizza" by Pizza Marketplace.

Pie Five now has 12 locations in Texas and one each in Kansas, North Carolina and Utah. Total announced franchise restaurants under contract currently number 105 in Florida, Kansas, Kentucky, Maryland, Missouri, Nebraska, Oklahoma, North Carolina, Texas, Utah and Virginia.

Matt Keener with CBRE has been engaged to scout locations for Pie Five throughout the Houston area.
