LOUISVILLE, Ky., Aug. 27, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Kentuckians love their pizza. But in a few short months, everything they thought they knew about getting their own perfect, individualized pizza will change. For the better.
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. The rapidly expanding chain is capitalizing on growing consumer demand for fresh dining options and artisan pizzas in stylish environments without the wait."We were fortunate to get in early with McAlister's, and we're even more excited to join the team at Pie Five at this early stage as well," said Young.

The addition of the Louisville and Lexington markets brings the total announced franchise restaurants under contract to 105 in Florida, Kansas, Kentucky, Maryland, Missouri, Nebraska, Oklahoma, North Carolina, Texas, Utah and Virginia.
