Pie Five Pizza Co., the new fast casual concept from Pizza Inn Holdings Inc., has opened its third unit in Dallas. Today, the company will host the grand opening of its newest restaurant at 4447 N. Central Expressway at the intersection of Knox and I-75.
The new addition marks the third Pie Five Pizza Co. to open in six months, following openings in Fort Worth and in Irving, Texas. Plans for further development throughout the Dallas-Fort Worth market continue, aided by the recent expansion of Pizza Inn's term facility by $4 million.
"The empowerment we have introduced to customers with a desire for fresh, customized, individual pizzas for one simple price without the wait has been an immediate hit. We're thrilled to bring it to Dallas," said Charlie Morrison, president and CEO of Pizza Inn.
For today's grand opening, the first 50 people will receive a free pie.
Also, the new Pie Five has partnered with The North Texas Food Bank, where Morrison has served as chairman of the board of directors. For every customer who brings in the special offer found on the Pie Five and North Texas Food Bank Facebook pages, Pie Five will donate $1 through Dec. 31 to benefit the North Texas Food Bank, where $1 provides three meals to someone in need.
The fourth Pie Five restaurant is set to open in December on Camp Bowie Boulevard in Fort Worth, Texas, and five more DFW locations are being planned for the first half of 2012
