DALLAS - Sept. 4, 2015 // PRNewswire // - Pie Five Pizza is bringing more awesome-sauce to the Hoosier state. Beginning September 10, Pie Five will have two locations in Indiana with the newest location opening at 6703 Whitestown Parkway in Zionsville across the street from Lowes in front of Meijer.
"Pie Five's concept is so unique with farm fresh ingredients, amazing service and pizza any way you want it in under 5 minutes -- we knew the community would love it," said Carl Dissette, Pie Five Pizza franchise owner. "We see significant growth potential in the state!"
Beyond just serving fast and delicious pizza, Pie Five believes in positively impacting the communities they serve. That's why 50 percent of pre-opening event proceeds will be donated to the Damar Foundation, whose goal is to enable people challenged by autism, intellectual and developmental disabilities and related behavioral challenges to live more successful lives. During the opening day ribbon cutting ceremony, Pie Five will present the Damar Foundation with the donation. The Zionsville Chamber of Commerce will also be present for the ribbon cutting ceremony at 10:45 a.m. on Thursday, September 10.
At Pie Five, guests can choose from more than a million combinations of farm fresh ingredients, artisan sauces and handcrafted crust varieties. Pie Five 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.
Soon Pie Five locations will blanket the Hoosier state like a warm, gooey blanket of mozzarella. The rapidly expanding pizza empire plans to open 500 company-owned and franchise units across the country in the next five years, with at least 15 of those locations in Indiana.
