"Pie Five is setting a new standard for pizza quality and service in the fast casual segment," said local franchise partner Kevin Goebel of KC Pie LLC. "At Pie Five, guests can you create their own perfect, individualized pizza with all the fresh, high-quality ingredients they love and have it baked-to-order in less than five minutes, for one great price. It's no wonder the concept has taken off in Kansas, and from coast to coast."
It's an exciting time for franchise owner Dave Goebel, who has opened six locations around the KC metro and surrounding cities. Goebel, former president and chief executive officer of Applebee's, along with sons Kerry and Kevin and daughter Lyssa, signed a Pie Five franchise agreement in 2013 and are planning to have eight locations before the end of the year. The Goebels have plan to open locations in the Kansas City area, Topeka, Lawrence, Manhattan and St. Joe as part of their 18 to 20 restaurant territory.
KC Pie, LLC executes the standards for service excellence not only inside the four walls of each store, but through community partnerships as well. The Lenexa-based company has donated over $68,000 to Children's Mercy Hospitals. As one of the top pediatric hospitals in the country and a non-profit institution, Children's Mercy relies on philanthropy to provide the highest level of care to everyone who walks in the doors, regardless of their financial situation. Proceeds have been raised at grand opening events and Mercy Mondays, where 5% of all sales from each location are donated back the hospital. That's not all, though. The Kansas City locations are also partnering with the Children's Mercy Hospitals for team building and uniting activities that will help benefit patients and families during their hospital stay.
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 without the wait.
