DALLAS - Aug. 31, 2015 // PRNewswire // - What's easier and faster than putting together the perfect class schedule? Building your own custom Pie Five Pizza, or trying a signature pie! Beginning September 4, VCU students and the surrounding community can take their pizza wish lists and turn them into reality. Pie Five will be opening its second Richmond location at 810 W. Grace Street.
"I'm excited to bring this unique concept to the VCU area," said Jeff Percey, Pie Five Pizza franchisee. "The Pie Five concept fits perfectly with fast-paced university life and lets our customers create their own custom pie in only five minutes! I love to change up my pizza to whatever I'm craving that day, although the Buffalo Chicken is my favorite signature pie!"
Zesty marinara and the radiantly red Pie Five sign aren't the only things Pie Five is bringing to the VCU campus. Pie Five also believes in giving back to the community. Pie Five will donate funds from pre-opening events to the local chapter of the American Red Cross.
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 handmade 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.
Pie Five's unique concept is catching on like the Rowdy Rams chants! The pizza phenomenon plans to open 500 company-owned and franchise units across the country in the next five years.
