Pie Five Turns the Peach State into the Pizza State
Leading Fast Casual Pizza Chain Opens First Georgia Location
DALLAS - Aug. 24, 2015 // PRNewswire // - Many things can be found the Atlanta area, but until now Pie Five Pizza was not one of them. Starting Friday, August 28 residents of Atlanta will be able to appease their appetites for one of our signature pies, or build their own masterpieces and receive it in less than five minutes. Pie Five will open its first Georgia location on the corner of Bullsboro Drive and Jefferson Street at 311 Bullsboro Drive. The best part is that you get unlimited farm fresh toppings for one great price.
"I'm so excited to finally bring the Pie Five Pizza experience to Atlanta," said Randy Gier, CEO of Rave Restaurant Group, Inc. parent company of Pie Five Pizza. "We have plans to open several locations in the Atlanta area over the next years and look forward to showing the community our handcrafted artisan crusts, fresh-made sauces and hand cut veggies – I think they will be hooked!"
Pie Five Pizza believes in giving back to the community and is kicking off the opening day location by presenting Jefferson Parkway Elementary School with a check from proceeds generated by pre-opening events. Principle, Dr. Sean Dye, will be at the new Pie Five on August 28 at 5:30 p.m. for the check presentation to the school.
At Pie Five, guests can choose from more than a million combinations of farm fresh ingredients, artisan sauces and handcrafted crust variety. Pies bake in just 145 seconds in a custom-designed, state-of-the-art oven. By the time the guest arrives at the register, their hot, bubbly, pizza perfection is ready. 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 to their meal. The rapidly expanding chain is capitalizing on growing consumer demand for fresh dining options and artisan pizzas in stylish environments without the wait.
While this is the first Georgia location, it certainly won't be the last. Pie Five plans to open 500 company-owned and franchise units across the country in the next five years. This location will mark the 59th in the Pie Five Pizza system.
