Leading Fast Casual Pizza Chain Opens Seventh Chicagoland Area Location
Dallas, TX (RestaurantNews.com) Whoever said you can’t have pizza every day? Beginning September 11, Pie Five Pizza will open its newest location in Glenview and Chicagoans can eat at a different location in the area every day of the week. At Pie Five, guests can choose from more than a million combinations of farm fresh ingredients, artisan sauces and handcrafted crust varieties. The new store will be located at 3800 Willow Road in front of Mariano’s Fresh Market, just West of I-294.
“We don’t create pizza for the masses — our goal is to make sure everyone gets exactly what they want on their pie and at an affordable price,” said Randy Gier, Pie Five’s CEO. “In an area known for its delicious pizza, we’re honored to have received such an amazing response from the community and look forward to adding more locations!”
Pie Five isn’t stopping at granting pizza wishes. At the grand opening ribbon cutting ceremony, the proceeds from pre-opening events will be presented in a check for $1,000 to the Illinois Make-A-Wish Foundation to help make wishes come true for local families. The ceremony will take place at 10:30 a.m. on Friday, September 11.
Pie Five pies bake in just 145 seconds in a custom-designed, state-of-the-art oven. By the time the guest arrives at the register, their hot, bubbly, pizza perfection is ready. Additionally, they can add one of Pie Five’s freshly-tossed handmade salads served in a baked pizza dough bowl or a decadent home-baked brownie or cookie pie to their meal. The rapidly expanding chain is capitalizing on growing consumer demand for fresh dining options and artisan pizzas without the wait.
Pie Five’s unique concept is catching on. The pizza phenom plans to open 500 company-owned and franchised locations across the country in the next five years.
