DALLAS - Nov. 4, 2015 // PRNewswire // - What is faster than a racecar and fresher than ocean air? That is Pie Five Pizza's made-to-order pies. Pie Five is perfect for the birthplace of speed and beginning Friday, November 6, Ormond Beach residents can master their own pizza dreams at the newest location at 1209 W. Granada Boulevard. This will be the fourth location in Florida opened by franchisee Gale Lemerand, who introduced the fast casual pizza brand to Central Florida.
"Pie Five has really taken off in the Central Florida area and I'm very excited to bring our handcrafted pies to my hometown of Ormond Beach," said Lemerand, Pie Five Pizza franchise partner. "When I was first introduced to Pie Five's concept, I knew Central Florida would embrace this new trend that gives guests make-it-your-way, fresh ingredient options, offered at one low price and served fast -- it's ideal for Ormond Beach locals!"
Lemerand is well known within the franchising community as the co-founder of Stonewood Grille & Tavern and franchise owner of multiple Peach Valley Cafes and Houligans in the Central Florida area. He plans to open up to 10 Pie Five locations in the Orlando, Melbourne, Daytona Beach and Gainesville communities.
Pie Five is proud to become a member of the Ormond Beach business community and to say thank you the new location is donating 75 percent of pre-opening event proceeds to the local YMCA. Pie Five will present a check to the YMCA at the ribbon cutting ceremony being held on Friday, November 6 at 10:30 a.m., with the local chamber of commerce also in attendance.
At Pie Five, guests can choose from more than a million combinations of farm fresh ingredients, artisan sauces and handcrafted crust varieties.
