Pie Five Pizza - the fast-casual restaurant known for its customizable pizzas prepared and ready to enjoy in five minutes or less - is opening its first Rhode Island location in the Tiverton Casino Hotel on Saturday, Sept. 1, at 777 Tiverton Casino Blvd. The new casino will also be celebrating its grand opening on Saturday.
Open Sunday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m., and Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 1 a.m., Pie Five is the perfect spot for casino-goers to take a break from hitting the blackjack table and indulge in a delicious meal handcrafted from fresh, hand-cut veggies and artisan toppings.
“We are excited to be a part of the brand-new casino in Tiverton,” said Franchisee Kurt Gutshall. “Our first Pie Five casino location in the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino has been a huge hit, so when I heard about the opening of this casino, I knew that I had to bring Pie Five to the table. Pie Five’s comfortable, clean and friendly environment combined with speedy service and quality ingredients makes it the go-to spot for casino guests looking to continue their lucky streak.”
“We’ve assembled an awesome team,” said General Manager DJ Burke. “We’re all looking forward to becoming an integral part of the casino community.”
To celebrate its grand opening, Pie Five is hosting a ribbon cutting on Aug. 30 with Governor Gina Raimondo. This is the first Pie Five in Rhode Island and 72rd system-wide. This also marks Gutshall’s fifth Pie Five restaurant and second casino location.
Pie Five’s fast-casual concept provides guests with a fully customizable experience from start to finish. With more than 30 fresh toppings, six savory sauces and five crust choices, there’s a delicious pairing to match every guest’s preference. Pie Five also accommodates dietary restrictions by offering low-carb cauliflower crust, gluten-free crust and a vegan cheese option.
