February 18, 2016 // Franchising.com // RANCHO SANTA MARGARITA, California – Pieology Pizzeria, where pizza lovers go to create artisan-style custom pizzas in endless flavor combinations, has announced the opening of its newest San Diego location in Pacific Beach. A proven favorite in the custom fast casual segment amongst pizza fans, Pieology Pacific Beach will feature the company’s newly introduced custom salad program and will be operated by Escondido Pie, LLC, which has secured the franchise rights to open Pieology restaurants throughout San Diego and Long Beach.
“We’re thrilled to continue our investment with Pieology in opening our newest location in the beautiful, high energy city of Pacific Beach,” said franchisee, John Sangmeister. “Pieology has made huge strides to cement its position as the leader in the popular fast casual pizza segment, such as its recent alignment with Panda Restaurant Group, and we are extremely happy with our decision to join the winning team.”
The Pieology experience starts with fresh house-made dough that is pressed into 11.5-inch thin pizza crusts, which is typically larger than others in the custom pizza space. Guests select from eight signature sauces, moving down the line to choose from more than 40 fresh and flavorful meats, cheeses, vegetables, herbs and spices. The customized pizzas are then stone oven fired to perfection in less than three minutes. To finish, guests have the option to add after-bake “Flavor Blast” sauces, including fiery buffalo, pesto and BBQ, to really make it their own! Pieology also offers gluten-free crust, whole wheat crust and a selection of seven signature pizzas, which can be customized upon request.
Pieology’s custom salads allow guests to create made-to-order salads by choosing from three fresh lettuce options of organic field greens, romaine hearts or spinach. Guests then select from any of Pieology’s large variety of toppings, including sunflower seeds, garbanzo beans and candied walnuts, along with a choice of five dressings made in-house. Pieology also offers a signature Classic and Caesar salad, which can be personalized with additional ingredients upon request. The generous portioned salad and pizza are the perfect pairing for a shareable meal.
Pieology Pacific Beach features an industrial-chic and friendly environment where inspirational quotes decorate the walls, menus and employee uniforms. The restaurant is open Sunday through Thursday 11 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. and Friday and Saturday 11 a.m. to 10:30 p.m.
