The fast casual pizza pioneer opens first of two airport locations at BWI
Pie Five Pizza Co., the fast casual restaurant known for customizable pizzas prepared in five minutes or less, is taking pizza to new heights – literally – with the opening of its newest location at Baltimore-Washington International Airport (BWI) on March 3. Open every day from 4 a.m. to 10 p.m., Pie Five is the perfect stop for travelers looking for a quick and delicious bite before their flight. Pizza patrons and hungry passengers alike can locate the restaurant pre-security in the main terminal between Concourse B and Concourse C.
The opening marks the first of two Pie Five locations to be opened at BWI, with the second opening planned for early May. The second location will be situated past security in Concourse B.
Pie Five franchisee, Creative Food Group, has been operating restaurants in airports since 2004 and at BWI since 2012. They understand the importance of speed and quality in an airport restaurant.
“Pie Five presented the perfect model to offer consumers a better way to dine during travel,” said Creative Food Group President, Altaf Isani. “With Pie Five’s nearly unlimited pizza combinations made from more than 40 fresh toppings, seven savory sauces and four made-from-scratch crusts, we’re sure guests will love the ability to customize their own personal pie. Pie Five will be a perfect fit for BWI Airport.”
Pie Five’s state-of-the-art TurboChef oven doesn’t require a hood, allowing it to be used in a variety of unique locations like airports. The oven’s heat, direction, airflow and belt speed can also be adjusted to produce the perfect pizza, side dish like a basket of cheesy Breadstix or a freshly baked turtle brownie, among other desserts.
“With Pie Five’s commitment to artisan pizza and speedy service, it was only fitting to bring the future of pizza to an airport setting,” said Pie Five CEO, Scott Crane. “We’re excited to explore this new territory, and look forward to taking airport pizza to the next level.”
