Pie Five Pizza Co. will make its debut in Nashville, Tenn., in the early part of 2014. The brand announced today it has awarded 10 franchise units to Rich Davis and Ron Payne.

Davis is a consultant and entrepreneur/restaurateur who previously brought the Schlotzsky's brand to Nashville. Payne is a real estate developer. They plan to open their first restaurant in the Cool Springs area by the second quarter of 2014.

"Fast casual concepts are growing like wildfire and Pie Five is leading the charge within the pizza space," Davis said. "Ron and I are extremely impressed with their operational model and the Pie Five value proposition can't be beat. When you can deliver a customizable pizza pie with all the fresh ingredients you want in less than 5 minutes, for one great price, you've got a winner."

"The Pie Five concept has been flourishing across the country thanks to our focus on delivering outstanding quality and value and partnering with exceptional franchisees," added Madison Jobe, chief development officer for Pie Five. "Rich and Ron bring successful backgrounds, enthusiasm and familiarity with the local market that we are seeking in our franchise partners."

Pie Five Pizza now has 12 locations in Texas, two in Utah and one each in Kansas and North Carolina. Total announced franchise restaurants under contract currently number 114 in Florida, Kansas, Kentucky, Maryland, Missouri, Nebraska, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, Utah and Virginia.
