Dallas — In a new franchise development deal that includes parts of New York and New Jersey, Pie Five Pizza will soon be expanding to the East Coast. The first locations are planned for Franklin Park in South Brunswick and Summerhill Square in East Brunswick.
"We were looking for sites for our other concepts when we stumbled across Pie Five," says new Pie Five franchisee Dinesh Goswami. "We were blown away by the high-quality ingredients, the customer-focused business model and how fast the pizzas were made — it's a very unique concept."
Goswami and his partners with AR Pizza, LLC, also own 47 Popeye's Chicken locations and eight Arby's restaurants.
"We helped build the Popeye's brand, so that experience allows us to bring a deep understanding of franchised restaurant operations to the table," says Goswami. "New York is basically the pizza capital of America and we are convinced that Pie Five offers a distinctive approach to the segment that will be a welcome addition to the food scene."
The new East Coast locations will also serve halal-certified meat to accommodate guests who observe the dietary guidelines.
Pie Five's fast-casual concept allows guests to completely customize their own personal pizza from a selection of more than 40 toppings, seven sauces and four made-from-scratch crusts.
Dallas-based Pie Five Pizza Co. is a subsidiary of RAVE Restaurant Group, Inc. RAVE owns, franchises and supplies more than 300 Pie Five and Pizza Inn restaurants operating domestically and internationally. For more information, visit PieFivePizza.com.
