Scottsdale, Ariz.-based Fired Pie held a grand opening celebration this week for its fourth opening in North Scottsdale, just west of the 101 Freeway on Raintree and Northsight. The new location is the concept's fourth since making its debut six months ago.
Although the real opening isn't until next week, the grand opening celebration included a fundraiser for the Phoenix 20-30 Club's Christmas Bowling with Santa event, which benefits UMOM, a nonprofit organization that helps underprivileged families.
"We are excited to open our fourth store here in the Valley," said Fred Morgan, one of the restaurant's three founders. "After opening two in Phoenix and one location in Chandler, North Scottsdale is a natural progression in our growth."
Fired Pie was born from the minds of Morgan, Rico Cuomo and Doug Doyle. The trio worked together for more than 15 years at California Pizza Kitchen. Morgan and Doyle recently worked with the senior team at Oregano's Pizza Bistro which brought them to the Phoenix market where they were reunited with Rico.
