Pie Five Pizza Co. Named a 2013 Top 50 Restaurant Brand of the Year

May 29, 2013 // Franchising.com // THE COLONY, Texas – The spotlight on Pie Five Pizza Co. continues to shine bright as it picks up the title of 2013 Top 50 Restaurant Brand of the Year.

The award was part of the Fast Casual Top 100 “Movers and Shakers” ranking by FastCasual.com presented at the 2013 National Restaurant Association (NRA) Show, held recently in Chicago.

“The entire team at Pie Five deserves high fives for catapulting this concept into a trusted brand that has forever changed the pizza dining landscape,” said Randy Gier, CEO of Pie Five Pizza Co.

FastCasual.com, which ranked top restaurant chains, trends, industry leaders, menu innovations and technologies that have helped improve business operations, listed Pie Five #40 and recognized the chain for taking customization to a new level for pizza lovers.

“Dubbed as an interactive pizza experience,” the ranking highlighted Pie Five for baking pizzas in less than five minutes and interacting with guests who “give their orders to ‘Pie-tech’ experts, who assemble each pie by hand with guest input throughout the entire process.” With plans for national expansion well underway the award is a delicious honor for the fast-growing chain.
