Leading Fast Casual Pizza Concept Opens First Jackson-area Location
Pie Five Pizza Co. is rolling out the dough in a new Jackson location. On October 2, the fast casual pizza craze featuring unlimited farm fresh toppings and artisan dough choices served bubbly hot in under 5 minutes will open at 96 Laurel Park Drive in Flowood.
Nationally recognized restaurateurs Fred Gustin and Kurt Guttshall of Slice of the Pie, LLC have 25 additional locations planned throughout Alabama, Mississippi and Tennessee. They opened their first Mississippi location in Biloxi at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino earlier this year with another coming to Clinton next year.
“Pie Five offers the perfect combination of fresh, fast and affordable options for every crowd,” said Kurt Guttshall, Pie Five Pizza local franchise partner. “We are confident Pie Five will be a big hit in the area!”
Although Pie Five makes individual pies, the company believes that sharing is caring, and is donating 50 percent of proceeds earned during pre-opening events to the local chapter of the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Opening day events will begin at 10:30 a.m. on Friday, October 2.
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, 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.
