DALLAS - // PRNewswire // - Say Cheese! At Pie Five Pizza customers can put as much cheese and any other toppings they want on their pies, and starting Monday, November 9, Ellicott City guests will be able to create their own pizza masterpieces at Pie Five's newest location located at 9525 Baltimore National Pike. The new Pie Five will be giving away free pies at pre-opening events on Saturday, November 7 and Sunday, November 8 to guests who sign up here while space is available.
"Everyone loves pizza, but at Pie Five we help create a pizza experience," said Jeff Mengel, Pie Five Pizza franchise partner. "Pie Five's concept is unique and we're passionate about changing the way that people enjoy their pie with fresh, all natural ingredients, signature flavors in a handcrafted personal crust."
Mengel was born and raised in the Baltimore area and is an experienced franchise owner. He and his partners successfully launched their Five Guys Burgers and Fries franchise in 2003 and currently operate two additional Pie Five locations in Owings Mills and Glen Burnie. Mengel's knowledge of the community and restaurant industry makes him a great resource for Pie Five's rapidly expanding brand.
Pizza is made great by the different ingredients working together to create a great taste. Pie Five loves working with the community to create something greater. That's why Pie Five is donating 50 percent of proceeds from pre-opening events to The Living Legacy Foundation. The Living Legacy Foundation's mission is to inspire Marylanders to save and enhance lives through organ and tissue donation, while honoring the legacy of their donors. The cause is personal to Mengel whose father-in-law was both a recipients and a donor.
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.
