Photo Release -- Pie Five Pizza Co. Expands To Florida

Stocks in this article: PZZI

"Gale's success speaks volumes," Gier said, "not only for his national business expertise and his impressive restaurant achievements, but also for his community involvement. Pie Five is proud to be a part of Florida's future with him leading that presence."

At Pie Five Pizza, guests can choose from more than a million combinations of hand-crafted pizzas and a variety of specialty pie choices prepared in less than five minutes on one of four crusts.

When Lemerand visited several Pie Five locations in Texas, he was ready to bring the concept to Florida in a big way. "I thought, 'How can you make a really good pizza in five minutes?'" he said. "They've got it nailed. It's a great pizza and a great product."

He was also impressed with Pie Five's infrastructure. "They have all the staff, all the assets and all the knowledge of being in the pizza business for so many years," Lemerand said.

With nine corporate-owned locations in Texas and multi-unit franchise agreements for Utah and Charlotte-N.C., Florida joins the lineup in one of the fastest-growing restaurant sectors.

Lemerand plans to open multiple locations in Florida to meet growing consumer demand for fresh dining options and artisan pizzas in stylish environments without the wait. He is looking at several potential sites to develop in both cities and plans to announce the location of his first Pie Five restaurant in the next 60 days.
