On Friday, the Pie Five Pizza chain will open the doors to its newest restaurant, its first in Virginia, just outside of Richmond in Glen Allen. According to a news release, the new restaurant marks the first of eight units franchise owners Jeff and Deborah Percey have committed to opening in the area.
“We’re thrilled to introduce fast casual pizza to the Richmond area,” Jeff Percey said in the release. “Everyone remembers their first Pie Five experience, when they watch us build their personal pizza, with all their favorite toppings, and serve it up in less than five minutes. Then they taste their pie, and a new fan is born.”
As part of its grand opening celebration, Pie Five will join forces with the community to raise money for the Western Henrico County Public Schools. Customers will have a chance to contribute May 19 to 22 and May 27 to 30 when 20 percent of all dinner sales will be donated to local Henrico School PTAs. Percey said the goal is to raise $10,000.
The Glen Allen location marks Pie Five’s 20th location nationwide.
