Pie Five Pizza Co will be featured at the 2013 National Restaurant Association (NRA) Show on Sunday, May 19, at McCormick Place in Chicago.

Pizza Inn Holdings senior vice president and chief development officer Madison Jobe will address successful restaurant franchising during the panel, “How to Franchise My Restaurant to Others: The Process Untangled.”

With more than 30 years of restaurant leadership experience, Jobe leads the Pie Five development team, while continuing to expand the Pizza Inn brand. Pie Five launched in 2011 and has since redefined the fast-casual dining experience.

“A concept that provides a solution to a consumer void and has the right infrastructure in place is vital to successful franchise development and growth,” say Jobe, who oversees franchise sales, construction, real estate, and design for Pizza Inn and Pie Five. “Pizza Inn and Pie Five both provide a unique value proposition to our customers. We are excited to share our insights with new restaurateurs at the NRA show.”

Named one of 10 Hot New Restaurant Chains from Established Brands by Forbes, Pie Five is quickly heating up across the country with nine locations open in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex and franchise agreements for another 37 restaurants to date in Utah, North Carolina, Florida, and Missouri.

In addition, Pie Five’s premier franchised location opened near Salt Lake City last month.
