DALLAS, Feb. 16, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Pie Five Pizza is feeling lucky in Kentucky with a brand new location opening in the Lexington area. Located near the University of Kentucky (go Wildcats!) and downtown Lexington, nearby residents now have a second location to get a hearty helping of their favorite customized pizza from Pie Five. The newest addition to the fast casual pizza brand opens on Friday, February 19 and is located at 867 South Broadway. The first 50 guests on opening day will receive a free pizza and t-shirt!
"I'm excited to bring local residents the kind of pizza experience they deserve!" said Mark Mehrizi, local Pie Five franchise partner. "As a Lexington native, I can confidently say that Pie Five is changing the pizza landscape and the way people think about, artisan-style, customized pizzas that are served in under 5 minutes."
Pie Five provides nothing but the best for the community it serves as well as for those who serve the community. During VIP events, the new Pie Five will be hosting the Lexington Police Department and other first responders. Proceeds from soft opening events will go to further support the Dance Blue Kentucky Childrens' Hospital Hematology/Oncology Clinic. In addition, Kentucky Sports Radio will help Pie Five award $5,000 in charitable gifts as a follow-up to last year's GoodGiving Challenge.
The first Lexington area Pie Five is located at the Fayette Mall at 3401 Nicholasville Road. At Pie Five, guests can choose from more than a million combinations of farm fresh ingredients, artisan sauces and handcrafted crust varieties. Pies bake in just 140 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. Guests can add one of Pie Five's freshly tossed handmade salads or a decadent home-baked brownie or cookie pie to their meal.
