DALLAS - June 10, 2015 // PRNewswire // - Starting Friday, June 12, Clarksville residents can enjoy fresh, fast, personal pizza at Nashville's newest Pie Five, located at 108 Morris Road in the Gateway Commons shopping center. Pizza-loving Tennesseans will have the chance to build their own pizza or try one of Pie Five's delicious signature pies - all made to order and baked in less than five minutes.
Clarksville is the fourth of 10 planned franchise locations by local businessmen Rich Davis and Ron Payne of Music City Pie Works, LLC. "Bringing new business to the area is a passion for Ron and myself, and we're both personally invested in helping our community flourish," said Rich.
Local 104.5 The Zone will help kick off Friday's opening celebration with Brent Dougherty, Mike Ryan and former Titans All-Pro Blaine Bishop during a live broadcast from the Clarksville store from 3–6 p.m. Franchisees Rich Davis and Ron Payne are also offering $5 pizzas at any Nashville area Pie Five location, including the Donelson, Cool Springs and Hendersonville restaurants.
In accordance with the spirit of the Volunteer State, the new restaurant will donate half of its pre-opening sales to Friends Life, an organization that helps adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities to grow personally, develop socially and live productive and fulfilling lives as part of the Nashville community.
The unique Pie Five model allows patrons to top their pizzas any way they want for the low price of $6.99, perfectly baked in only 145 seconds in a custom-designed, state-of-the-art oven. There are millions of possible pizza combinations Pie Five customers can create with four crusts (including artisan thin, classic pan, whole 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.
Pie Five plans to open 500 company-owned and franchise units across the country in the next five years.
