The Pie Hole Signs Second International Franchise Deal

The L.A.-based pie and coffee concept will now open in the Middle East.

October 19, 2015 // Franchising.com // Los Angeles, CA - The Pie Hole, the celebrated Los Angeles-based pie and coffee concept, has signed back-to-back international multi-unit franchise deals – first for Japan, and now for Qatar.

Named to Conde Nast Traveler’s Best Pies in America list, The Pie Hole features sweet and savory, made-from-scratch pies and premium coffees in a fast casual, local gathering space format.

The Pie Hole has partnered with Fransmart, the company behind the explosive growth of Five Guys Burgers and Fries and Qdoba Mexican Grill, to head up franchise development.

The franchisee, who signed the agreement with the help of Fransmart’s VP of Sales, Al Rowe, will open 3 new pie shops in Qatar, and represents the brand’s first move into the Middle East/GCC regions.

The Pie Hole currently has two corporately owned locations in Los Angeles and Pasadena, and a franchised non-traditional unit at LAX Airport. In addition to the international deals, a multi-unit franchise group has also signed on to develop parts of Orange County, CA.
