Pie Five Brings Personalized Pizza To Waco
Fast casual pizza trailblazer opens newest location near Baylor University April 5

WACO, Texas, April 3, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Picky pizza lovers in Waco are in luck!

Pie Five Pizza Co. – the fast casual restaurant known for its customizable pizzas prepared and ready to enjoy in five minutes or less – is making its Waco debut on Wednesday, April 5. The new restaurant is located at 720 S. 5th St., near Baylor University and Magnolia Market.

The Waco restaurant will be the third Pie Five for franchisees Chirag Patel and Sudesh Patidar, who currently own popular locations in Georgetown and Pflugerville.

"Waco is such a great town and it's been growing like crazy, but they still don't have a pizza concept like Pie Five," said Patel. "We're excited to bring our fresh, made-to-order pizzas to the area and we look forward to welcoming local residents, as well as Baylor students, faculty and employees, to our beautiful new restaurant."

In celebration of its grand opening, Pie Five is donating 50% of proceeds from pre-opening events on April 2 and 3 to Communities in Schools of the Heart of Texas, a Waco-based non-profit whose mission is to surround students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life.
