Dinesh Goswami and his partners with AR Pizza, LLC, already successfully operate 47 Popeye's Chicken locations and eight Arby's restaurants. Now they are expanding their portfolio by adding Pie Five Pizza in a new development deal that will bring the restaurants to parts of New York and New Jersey. The first locations are planned for Franklin Park in South Brunswick and Summerhill Square in East Brunswick.
"We were looking for sites for our other concepts when we stumbled across Pie Five," said AR Pizza's Dinesh Goswami. "We were blown away by the high-quality ingredients, the customer-focused business model and how fast the pizzas were made - it's a very unique concept."
Pie Five's fast casual concept allows guests to customize their own personal pizza. The brand is owned by the RAVE Restaurant Group, Inc., which franchises more than 300 Pie Five and Pizza Inn restaurants domestically and internationally.
"We helped build the Popeye's brand, so that experience allows us to bring a deep understanding of franchised restaurant operations to the table," said Goswami. "New York is basically the pizza capital of America and we are convinced that Pie Five offers a distinctive approach to the segment that will be a welcome addition to the food scene."
