Pie Five Pizza Co. Now Open in Denton
Rapidly Expanding Concept Opens Ninth Location and Second College Location
THE COLONY, Texas, Jan. 21, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Denton is known for its
eclectic music scene, large universities and now, the addition of the first
Pie Five restaurant in town. Today, Pie Five Pizza Co., a division of Pizza
Inn, Inc. (Nasdaq:PZZI), opened its ninth restaurant and second college
location at 1120 West Hickory at Fry Street across from the University of
North Texas campus in Denton.
"Denton is a young and active community and home to University of North Texas
and Texas Woman's University. It's the ideal location to open our newest Pie
Five restaurant," said Chief Executive Officer Randy Gier. "We can't wait to
introduce the Denton community to our revolutionary pizza experience."
With the on-the-go college crowd in mind, the Pie Five Denton menu features
more than a million combinations of fresh, made-to-order pizzas and a variety
of specialty pie choices prepared in less than five minutes on a Whole Grain,
Artisan Thin, Classic Pan, or Gluten Free Crust.
"Our Denton location is the first Pie Five restaurant to offer Whole Grain
Crust," Gier added. "The menu addition makes our Denton location unique and
adds to the list of fresh and delicious choices available to our guests.
