Pie Five’s Latest Pizza Isn’t Great, It’s Thai-riffic!


Leading fast-casual pizza brand introduces Thai-inspired pie nationwide today

DALLAS, March 10, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — The Pie-artisans at Pie Five Pizza just can’t leave well enough alone.

Pizza Inn Inc Pie Five Pizza CoYou’d think letting customers build their own perfect, personalized pizzas with whatever toppings they want – all at one great price – would be enough. You’d think dreaming up a wide variety of specialty pies – like the High Five, the Pesto Chicken Alfredo and the ultra-healthy Farmer’s Market – would be more than enough.

But no… They decided to go halfway around the world to develop a new international delicacy to delight their customers.

Beginning today, March 9, customers of the nation’s leading fast-casual pizza concept will get their first taste of the new Thai-riffic Pie, a Thai-inspired creation featuring a sweet chili sauce, sliced grilled chicken and a mix of fresh veggies, topped off with crushed red peppers, carrot sticks and cilantro. Yes, we said cilantro. Believe it!

“If you love Thai food, you’re going to love this new pie,” said Patty Scheibmeir, vice president of R&D and Product Innovation for Pie Five Pizza. “It’s nut-less and full of flavor, without the spiciness of most Thai foods. It’s different from any specialty pie we’ve ever served up, but we think it’s going to be a customer favorite.”

Just don’t wait too long to “Thai” it out. This limited time offering is only available through April 19.

At Pie Five, guests can choose from more than a million combinations of handcrafted pizzas and a variety of specialty pie choices prepared in less than five minutes on one of four crusts all for one low price. Pie Fivers can also add a fresh, hand-made salad, tossed right in front of them while their pizza reaches hot, cheesy perfection. The rapidly expanding chain is capitalizing on growing consumer demand for fresh dining options and artisan pizzas in stylish environments without the wait.

Pie Five Pizza has been named among Fast Casual’s 2014 Top 15 “Movers & Shakers,” a 2012 Hot Concepts winner by Nation’s Restaurant News and one of “10 Hot New Restaurant Chains from Established Brands” by Forbes.com. The company currently has 38 locations in ten states (Alabama, Florida, Kansas, Maryland, Missouri, North Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Utah and Virginia) with more than 400 announced company-owned and franchise units under contract in 14 states and Washington, DC.
