Pieology Pizzeria opened its first Tennessee location in the city of Franklin. To celebrate the opening, Pieology raised more than $5,000 for local nonprofit Show Hope a movement to restore the hope of families and orphans in distress around the world during a pre-opening event. Pieology provided free pizzas to all guests while encouraging them to donate to the nonprofit. The restaurant contributed 100 percent of the donations generated from the event to benefit Show Hope.
“We’re thrilled to open our flagship location in the beautiful city of Franklin and introduce Pieology’s custom dining experience to residents in the greater Nashville area,” says Segovia Aslan Enterprise’s managing partner and CEO Lin Stinson. “We invite our new neighbors to stop in and create a delicious pizza or custom salad, inspired by their own personality, flavor preferences, and imagination, always for one affordable price.”
In addition to providing much-needed support to families and abandoned children, Show Hope is dedicated to reducing the barriers around adoption. Grammy award–winning Christian artist Steven Chapman and his wife Mary Beth thank the community for supporting the cause.
“Steven and I are excited that Pieology not only opened in our home town, but chose to benefit Show Hope in the process,” says Mary Beth Chapman, president of Show Hope. “We are huge fans of people using their platforms and voices to help the most vulnerable, orphans.”
Pieology Franklin features an industrial-chic and friendly environment where inspirational quotes decorate the walls, menus and employee uniforms.
“We’d like to thank the residents of Franklin for a very warm welcome and for coming out to support Show Hope, a nonprofit that is near and dear to our hearts,” says Pieology Franklin’s general manager, James Meyers. “This partnership is the first of many as we are dedicated to supporting local organizations that improve the lives of those who need it most.”
