Pie Five Pizza Invades Austin

Pie Five Pizza will soon be opening its restaurant chain in Austin Texas as the chain closes a deal for 12 franchise units to Sudesh Patidar and Chirag Patel. 

Though this subsidiary already has a home base in Texas in Dallas-Fort Worth, the company continues its expansion to farther areas such as Bastrop, Caldwell, Hays, Travis and Williamson counties.

The success of Patel and Patidar as entrepreneurs has led them to be attracted to the business model of Pie Five, which has been part of the Top 50 Restaurant Brands in 2013. It has also been the 2012 Hot Concepts Winner by Nation's Restaurant News and Forbes.  

“Pie Five’s model is focused on providing personalized service, so there was an immediate comfort factor there for me on the operational side,” said Patel.  “As we did our homework on the concept and the management team and resources behind it, we became convinced that Pie Five is the most promising company in the fast-casual segment today.  We are equally certain that Pie Five will be an overnight sensation in Austin.”

“Austin has been a priority expansion market of ours from the beginning, so it was imperative for us to team-up with very capable andexperienced franchise partners,” said Madison Jobe, chief development officer for Pie Five.  “We’re honored that Sudesh and Chirag think so highly of our brand, and we look forward to working closely with them as they introduce the good people of Austin to the Pie Five experience.”

With the many options of handcrafted pizzas in Pie Five, customers will be able to feel satisfaction in their food in their fresh artisan pizzas. 

“Best company, strong team, great product and excellent concept.  These were the deciding factors for me when it came to choosing Pie Five,” said Patidar.  “Furthermore, we are impressed by the company’s commitment to leading this high-growth category, and we look forward to being their partners in the Austin market for many years to come.”

As of today, Pie Five has 10 locations in Texas.
