Reach for the Pie! Pie Five Pizza Opens First Arizona RestaurantPie Five Pizza is heating up faster than the Grand Canyon state. Starting Friday, October 16, Pie Five will be serving handcrafted, made-to-order pies in Scottsdale at 14601 N. Scottsdale Road across the street from The Shane Company. This pizza powerhouse allows patrons to build and enjoy their own creations, or a signature pie, in under five minutes!

“At Pie Five, we’re passionate about creating an experience for our guests,” said Blake Henderson, General Manager of the new Pie Five in Scottsdale. “Our concept is perfect for the active lifestyles of Scottsdale residents. Everything from our hand-cut veggies to our homemade desserts can make customers feel good about what you’re eating at Pie Five.”

At Pie Five, guests can choose from more than a million combinations of farm fresh ingredients, artisan sauces and handcrafted crust varieties. Pie Five pies bake in just 145 seconds in a custom-designed, state-of-the-art oven. By the time the guest arrives at the register, their hot, bubbly, pizza perfection is ready. Additionally, they can add one of Pie Five’s freshly-tossed handmade salads served in a baked pizza dough bowl or a decadent home-baked brownie or cookie pie to their meal. The rapidly expanding chain is capitalizing on growing consumer demand for fresh dining options and artisan pizzas without the wait.

The order and discipline needed to run a business won’t be a new practice for Henderson. As a retired-third generation Marine, he has a long history of serving his community. In addition to his role at Pie Five, Henderson is a volunteer with the Wounded Warriors Project.

Pie Five will donate 50 percent of all pre-event proceeds to Business United for Scottsdale Schools (BUSS) initiative. The BUSS mission is to enhance Scottsdale’s schools through collaborative initiatives with the local business community. Pie Five will present BUSS with a check and welcome representatives from the Scottsdale Area Chamber at the opening day ribbon-cutting ceremony at 10:30 a.m. on Friday, October 16.
