June 30, 2015 // Franchising.com // RANCHO SANTA MARGARITA, California – Pieology Pizzeria, where pizza lovers go to create custom pizzas in endless flavor combinations, today announced the construction of its third Alabama Pieology location. Located in the historic Toomer’s Corner in Auburn, this new store is set to open this year and will be operated by Segovia Aslan Enterprises, which has secured the franchise rights to open Pieology restaurants across the Southeastern United States.
“We are thrilled to introduce Pieology to Auburn and provide the community with a brand new way to enjoy pizza!” said Joshua McBride, director of operations for Segovia Aslan Enterprises. “Our Huntsville, Alabama location, which opened earlier this year, is performing above expectations and we’re ready to roll out the Pieology experience to new guests in the region.”
Pieology Auburn will be located at Toomer’s Corner, one of the city’s most recognizable landmarks, at the intersection of College St. and Magnolia Ave. Currently under construction, Toomer’s Corner will soon have new crosswalks, street trees and brick walls. These improvements are designed to highlight and accentuate a part of town that has been the heart of Auburn for well over a century.
“We’re proud to team up with such a talented and seasoned franchise partner as we grow Pieology throughout the Southeastern states,” said Carl Chang, Pieology founder and CEO. “As we continue to expand throughout the U.S., we’ve seen that the simplicity of the Pieology model has proven successful in every market we enter. We’re committed to providing guests with the ability to customize their made-to-order pizzas with unlimited fresh toppings, all for under $8.”
The Pieology experience starts with fresh house-made dough that is pressed into 11.5-inch thin pizza crusts. Guests first select from eight signature sauces, moving down the line to choose from more than 40 fresh and flavorful meats, cheeses, vegetables, herbs and spices. The customized pizzas are then stone oven fired to perfection in less than three minutes. To finish, guests have the option to add after-bake “Flavor Blast” sauces, including fiery buffalo, pesto and BBQ, to their own unique creation. Most custom pizzas with unlimited toppings are $8.00 or less. Pieology also offers original, gluten-free crust or whole wheat crust and a selection of seven signature pizzas, which can be customized upon request.
The Auburn Pieology will comfortably seat over 150 guests in an industrial-chic and friendly environment where inspirational quotes decorate the walls, menus and employee uniforms. Construction will be completed by Prairie Contractors.
Using only the freshest ingredients along with signature sauces and crusts, award-winning Pieology Pizzeria offers hand-crafted, personally-inspired pizzas in unlimited flavor combinations that are stone oven fired in less than three minutes. Founded in 2011 by Carl Chang, Pieology is the true “pie-oneer” in the fast casual custom pizza sector, evolving from the simple idea to turn America’s most crave-able food into an affordable and interactive experience.
