DALLAS, Nov. 5, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Pie Five Pizza knows that two pizzas are better than one, and many toppings are better than none! Whether heading east or west, Twin Cities residents now have two ways to get their personalized pies in less than five minutes! The newest Pie Five store in Woodbury will officially heat up the oven and open its doors on Friday, November 6, at 245 Radio Drive, south of I-94 in the new CityPlace development.
"The response from the Eden Prairie opening was amazing, and we're thrilled to share Pie Five's artisan pie with more Twin Cities-area residents," said Randy Gier, Chief Eating Officer of RAVE Restaurant Group, Inc. "Pie Five offers many fresh, quality ingredients at an affordable price, making it ideal for families, students and everyone in between."
The pizza pioneer does more than raise fresh dough in-store each morning, it also enjoys raising funds for the local community. That's why Pie Five is donating $1,000 to the Christian Cupboard Emergency Food Shelf (CCEFS). The nonprofit provides nutritious food and personal care items to people in the community, while fighting to eliminate hunger. The Woodbury-based organization serves more than 500 households each month. Pie Five will present the check to CCEFS during the opening day ceremony at 10:30 a.m. on Friday, November 6 . Members of the Chamber of Commerce and Woodbury city officials will also be in attendance at the opening day ceremony.
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.
