Pie Five Pizza Serves up Game Winning Pies at First-Ever Lawrence Location

Former Applebee's CEO and family set to open tenth location in Kansas City area.

LAWRENCE, Kan. - April 27, 2016 // PRNewswire // -- Today, Pie Five Pizza announced plans to open their first restaurant in Lawrence on Friday, April 29th! The new restaurant is located at 2500 Iowa Street in Lawrence, just a few short minutes away from the University of Kansas. Students and local residents are invited to stop by on opening day from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. to create their very own personal pies made from more than 30 fresh toppings, eight savory sauces and four made-from-scratch crusts. A slew of other prizes will be given away all day, including Kansas City Royals tickets, Country Stampede tickets and $20 Pie Five gift cards.

This is the tenth Pie Five restaurant opened by the Goebel family in the Kansas City area. Dave Goebel has worked in the restaurant industry for over 40 years, previously serving as President and Chief Executive Officer of Applebee's. In 2013, he signed a Pie Five franchise agreement along with sons Kerry and Kevin and daughter Lyssa Krumholtz that will open at least 18 to 20 restaurants in theKansas City area.

"We were initially drawn to the fast-casual pizza concept, and in particular to the Pie Five brand, because of the ability to customize pizzas for each guests' needs," said Kerry Goebel, Pie Five Pizza franchisee. "As we've grown, so have our fresh menu offerings. We now have the ability to cater to guests with dietary-based restrictions and food-sensitive allergies with our gluten-free crust and vegan-cheese. Our combinations are nearly infinite."

The Goebel family will also continue their longstanding commitment of donating 5 percent of sales each and every Monday to Children's Mercy Hospital inKansas City through their "Mercy Mondays" program. Thanks to the generosity of their guests, Pie Five has already raised $97,000 for the children's hospital. Help them reach their goal of $100,000 by stopping in at any area Pie Five on Mondays.

"Children's Mercy Hospital provides life-saving treatment to all patients, regardless of their ability to pay" said franchise partner, Dave Goebel. "We applaud and support this effort through our continued partnership."
