Pie Five Pizza Co. Shakes, Rattles and Rolls with First Mississippi Location

Leading Fast Casual Pizza Chain Hits the Jackpot at Hard Rock in Biloxi

BILOXI, Miss. - May 5, 2015 // PRNewswire // - On Friday, May 8, the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Biloxi will hit the jackpot when Pie Five Pizza Co. officially opens and starts serving fresh, fast personal pizzas, created and cooked with the freshest ingredients in under five minutes. This will be the nation's leading fast casual pizza company's first Mississippi location.

"We are thrilled to bring fast casual pizza to the Gulf Coast and Hard Rock Hotel & Casino," said Randy Gier, president and CEO of Rave Restaurant Group, parent company of Pie Five Pizza Co. "We can't wait to show guests that artisanal, quality pizza can be served fast – 145 seconds to be exact."

Pie Five's unique fast casual model allows patrons to customize a personal handcrafted pizza, choosing from a wide selection of fresh, artisan ingredients - all in under 5 minutes. The masterfully created pizzas are cooked in custom-designed, state-of-the-art pizza oven. There are millions of possible pizza combinations Pie Five customers can create with four crusts (including artisan thin, classic pan, whole wheat grain Neapolitan and gluten-free), seven sauces and 28 fresh toppings. Additionally, they can add one of Pie Five's freshly-tossed hand-made salads served in a baked pizza dough bowl or a decadent home-baked brownie or cookie pie.

Nationally recognized restaurateurs Fred Gustin and Kurt Guttshall of Quality Restaurant Concepts, LLC. are bringing the distinctive Pie Five experience to guests at Hard Rock Biloxi. They have at least 25 additional locations planned throughout Alabama, Mississippi and Tennessee.

"We are extremely excited to partner with the Hard Rock Team," said Guttshall. "The Hard Rock Hotel & Casino is a very cool and dynamic resort that much like Pie Five, caters to guests of all ages."

Pie Five Pizza Co. has been named among Fast Casual's 2014 Top 15 "Movers & Shakers," a 2012 Hot Concepts winner by Nation's Restaurant News and one of "10 Hot New Restaurant Chains from Established Brands" by Forbes.com. The company currently has 45 locations in 13 states. The new location at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Biloxi is located on the main floor, next to Starbucks.
