Pieology Pizzeria in Hanford Raises Over $1,700 for Kings United Way
100 Percent of Donations Received During Pre-Opening Event Benefit Local Non-Profit
September 16, 2016 // Franchising.com // RANCHO SANTA MARGARITA, California – Pieology Pizzeria, where pizza lovers go to create artisan-style custom pizzas in endless flavor combinations for one affordable price, is excited to announce that its newest California location has opened in the city of Hanford. To celebrate its grand opening, Pieology held a pre-opening fundraiser which raised over $1,700 for Kings United Way, an organization whose main goal is to build a caring community where neighbors help neighbors improve the quality of their lives and live with dignity.
“We are thrilled that our newest California location is now open in the Hanford Mall,” said Pieology Pizzeria Founder and CEO, Carl Chang. “Our partnership with Kings United Way is the first of many for our new Hanford location and we’re grateful that the community has welcomed us with open arms. We’re looking forward to partnering with additional local non-profit groups to raise funds to support the Hanford community for years to come.”
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.
Kings United Way is where local non-profits can gain access to the funds, volunteers and capacity-building assistance needed to achieve their goals and provide services for Kings County Residents for years to come. “Partnering with a company like Pieology really helps get our message out to the Hanford community,” said Lucia Orozco, Director of Community Impact and Operations for Kings United Way. “All of us here at Kings United Way feel honored that Pieology chose our organization to partner with and we’re grateful they were able to raise this much money for our cause.”
Pieology Hanford features an industrial-chic and friendly environment where inspirational quotes decorate the walls, menus and employee uniforms. The restaurant is open Monday – Thursday 11:00 a.m. to 9:30 p.m., Friday – Saturday 11:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m., and Sunday 11:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m.
