Pie Five Pizza Co. today announced its first franchised location is scheduled to open this month in Holladay, Utah, near Salt Lake City. It will be operated by John Gilleland and his partners.

Gilleland, an experienced restaurant operator, first experienced Pie Five on a business trip to Dallas.

"When I got home, I couldn't get the Pie Five experience out of my mind. It was innovative and unlike any other pizza chain. The more research our team did, the more impressed we were with the concept and its accolades within the restaurant industry," Gilleland said. "We are entrepreneurs at heart. When we learned Pie Five was getting ready to franchise across the country, we knew we wanted to get in on the ground floor and introduce Pie Five in Salt Lake City."

Gilleland and his partners were awarded the first Pie Five multiunit franchise agreement with plans to open an additional seven locations in Utah.

"John and his partners are the perfect team to open our first franchised location," said Randy Gier, CEO of Pie Five. "They bring tremendous restaurant and operational experience, a solid business background, and share our vision for the future of the concept."

Since the original Pie Five restaurant debuted in Fort Worth, Texas in 2011, the concept has expanded to nine corporate-owned restaurants across the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex. In addition to this agreement, Pie Five recently awarded a multiunit development agreement to veteran restaurateurs Michael Understein in North Carolina and Gale Lemerand in Florida.
