Pie Five Pizza Co. announced the opening of Wichita, Kansas’s newest Pie Five restaurant at 2035 N. Rock Road, across from Bradley Fair. It marks the third location in the Wichita market and the sixth throughout Kansas.

The new restaurant will throw its official grand opening party beginning at 11 a.m. on December 19 and will be collecting canned goods to benefit the Our Daily Bread Food Pantry. In addition to food donations, local franchisee Jim Stevens and his crew have an ongoing partnership with the charity through which proceeds from private training events and their Miracle Monday promotion benefit the not-for-profit. Each Monday, Pie Five donates 5 percent of all sales to the food pantry. To date, more than $5,500 has been raised from these events. 

“I’m thrilled with how quickly the people of Wichita have embraced Pie Five’s take on pizza perfection, which really no surprise is given our focus on fresh, made-to-order pizzas served just the way you like them,” Stevens says. “We’re also committed to giving back to the local community through Our Daily Bread and look forward to supporting this wonderful organization for many years in many ways.” 

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 price. The rapidly expanding chain is capitalizing on growing consumer demand for fresh dining options and artisan pizzas.

“Whether you’ve been naughty or nice this year, there’s something delicious for everyone at Pie Five. We’re inviting local residents to escape the hustle and bustle and treat themselves to pizza exactly how they want it,” says Joe Chandler, director of operations for Big Cheese Pizza LLC, parent company of this franchise. “And since we virtually eliminate the wait, they’ll still have plenty of time to get back out and into the fray, quicker than they can say ‘Santa Claus is coming to Wichita.’”
