Leading Fast Casual Pizza Innovator Opens Second Pie Five Location in Arkansas
Dallas, TX (RestaurantNews.com) Little Rock residents are in for a world of big flavor that will “rock” their taste buds! Pie Five Pizza Co is opening its second Arkansas location on Monday, September 26, at 10800 Bass Pro Parkway, across the street from the Outlets of Little Rock. Open every day from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., Pie Five gives guests the freedom to customize their pizzas with unlimited toppings that bake in just 140 seconds – all for one low price.
The new location marks Pie Five Franchisee Rob Byford’s second location in the “Natural State.” With more than 20 years of experience in the restaurant industry, Rob knows a good thing when he sees it.
“I’ve seen a lot of fads come and go in my 20+ years in the restaurant industry,” said Rob Byford, Pie Five Franchisee. “Pie Five Pizza is a movement! Once our guests in Little Rock have a taste of our authentic artisan-style pies, I have no doubts they will be coming back again and again.”
In celebration of the grand opening, Pie Five has collaborated with The Call, an organization dedicated to finding families in local communities around Arkansas to meet the needs of local children in foster care. The CALL works with local churches to assemble a support team of volunteers to wrap around their foster and adoptive families. This year, more than 7,000 children will spend time in foster care and more than 500 children are waiting for adoption.
“We are so happy to give back to The Call,” added Byford. “Their dedication to changing children’s lives is truly inspiring, and we could not be more thrilled to help raise awareness for this organization.”
