Pieology is breaking into the Volunteer State, opening its first Tennessee location in Franklin by first doing a very good deed. The chain is donating $5,000 raised at a pre-opening event to the local nonprofit, Show Hope, whose mission is to care for orphaned children around the world and reduce barriers to adoption.
"We’re thrilled to open our flagship location in the beautiful city of Franklin and introduce Pieology’s custom dining experience to residents in the greater Nashville area,” said Lin Stinson, CEO and managing partner of Segovia Aslan Enterprises.
Grammy-award winning Christian artist, Steven Chapman and his wife Mary Beth, who are originally from Franklin, applauded the chain’s support for Show Hope, which they founded in 2003.
"We are huge fans of people using their platforms and voices to help the most vulnerable, orphans," said Ms. Chapman, who is also president of the Show Hope organization.
