To celebrate the opening, Pieology raised over $5,000 for local non-profit, Show Hope, a movement to restore the hope of families and orphans in distress around the world during a pre-opening event. Pieology provided free pizzas to all guests while encouraging them to donate to the non-profit. The restaurant contributed 100 percent of the donations generated from the event to benefit Show Hope.
“We’re thrilled to open our flagship location in the beautiful city of Franklin and introduce Pieology’s custom dining experience to residents in the greater Nashville area,” said Segovia Aslan Enterprise’s Managing Partner and CEO, Lin Stinson. “We invite our new neighbors to stop in and create a delicious pizza or custom salad, inspired by their own personality, flavor preferences and imagination, always for one affordable price.”
In addition to providing much-needed support to families and abandoned children, Show Hope is dedicated to reducing the barriers around adoption. Grammy-award winning Christian artist, Steven Chapman and his wife Mary Beth thank the community for supporting the cause, “Steven and I are excited that Pieology not only opened in our home town, but chose to benefit Show Hope in the process,” said Mary Beth Chapman, president of Show Hope. “We are huge fans of people using their platforms and voices to help the most vulnerable, orphans.”
Pieology Franklin features an industrial-chic and friendly environment where inspirational quotes decorate the walls, menus and employee uniforms. The restaurant is open Sunday – Thursday 11:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. and Friday – Saturday 11:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m.
