Pie Five to swear in the President of Pizza Tuesday in Nashville
Hail to the Cheese! Pie Five, the nation’s leading fast casual pizza brand, will swear into office tomorrow its new President of Pizza…Hunter Todd of Franklin, TN.
“I cannot tell a lie,” said President Todd. “I love Pie Five. It’s good to be President of Pizza. And I voted for myself…a lot. I may bankrupt the company, but hey, I won the election!”
An avowed member of America’s Pizza Party, President Todd competed against hundreds of candidates to win the President of Pizza election. As President of Pizza for Pie Five, he will be responsible for eating free pizza for a year at Pie Five restaurants. President Todd also will get free pizza for 25 of his friends for a year, his picture and presidential bio at www.piefive.com, and photo bomb opportunities any time he shows up at a grand opening.
“To paraphrase the great President Rutherford B. Hayes, ‘He serves his party best who serves the best pizza,’” said Randy Gier, Chief Eating Officer of Pie Five. “Pie Five is known for serving the best pizza. Now we’ve got a president who will do nothing about it…except eat.”
With at least one new Pie Five projected to open each week in 2015, President Todd could have a busy schedule. Pie Five lovers create their own high-quality handcrafted pizzas that bake in 145 seconds using our patented ovens. Everything is made from scratch in every restaurant…from making the dough to shredding the cheese, to blending the sauce, to chopping the fresh vegetable toppings.
Here’s how it works. As Pie Five pizza lovers step to the counter, our Pie-artisans help them choose their favorite crust – artisan thin, classic pan, whole grain Neapolitan or gluten free thin. Then they can choose from seven sauces, four cheeses, eight meats and 16 veggies and best of all, there’s no penalty for piling on…there’s more than a million combinations of handcrafted personal pizzas to choose from.
Pie Five bakes each perfect personal pizza in a specially designed oven. By the time the guest arrives at the register, their hot, bubbly, pizza is ready. And whether they select from one of Pie Five’s specialty recipes or create their own, it’s all the same great price.
Pie Fivers can also add a fresh, hand-made salad, tossed right in front of them while their pizza reaches hot, cheesy perfection. Dessert offerings include Turtle brownies and chocolate chip pizza cookies, as well as seasonal pizzas and desserts, all baked fresh daily.
