Leading Fast Casual Pizza Chain Opens New Chicagoland Location
Dallas, TX (RestaurantNews.com) Soon the Algonquin community will be able to savor their own personal pizza creations and a number of Signature personal pie options in less than five minutes at Pie Five Pizza. On Friday, June 12, Pie Five will open its fourth Chicagoland location just North of Harnish Drive, at 776 South Randall Road, in front of the Super Target.
“Pie Five is a family-friendly restaurant perfect for the Algonquin community,” said Randy Gier, Pie Five’s CEO. “Bringing the two together is a no brainer.”
A ribbon cutting ceremony will be held at 10:45 AM on opening day, and a number of Algonquin community leaders will be there, including representatives from the Northwest Herald, the Chamber of Commerce, Jacobs High School, Make-A-Wish Illinois, Algonquin Area Youth Baseball, Park District and members of the Village Board of Trustees.
To kick off the opening celebration, 50 percent of pre-opening proceeds will be donated to the Illinois chapter of Make-A-Wish Foundation. In addition, the Algonquin Area Youth Baseball, Local Park District and Jacobs High School Boosters will have ongoing partnerships and receive support from the new Algonquin restaurant.
The unique Pie Five model allows patrons to top their pizzas any way they want for the low price of $6.99, perfectly baked in only 145 seconds in a custom-designed, state-of-the-art oven. There are millions of possible pizza combinations Pie Five customers can create with four crusts (including artisan thin, classic pan, whole grain Neapolitan and gluten-free), seven sauces and 28 fresh toppings. Additionally, they can add one of Pie Five’s freshly-tossed hand-made salads served in a baked pizza dough bowl or a decadent home-baked brownie or cookie pie.
The Algonquin restaurant marks the fourth Pie Five restaurant in Illinois, and Pie Five plans to open 500 company-owned and franchise units across the country in the next five years. There are 10 more Chicago-area locations planned before the end of the year.
