Pieology Pizzeria, where pizza lovers go to create custom pizzas in endless flavor combinations at one affordable price, has signed a master franchise agreement with Progressive Pies LLC to open Pieology’s first locations in Guam and Saipan. The agreement outlines commitments to open at least three locations throughout the territory, with the first to open in Guam at the beginning of 2016. Pieology is the first fast-casual custom-pizza concept to announce plans to build in these markets.
“There’s a significant demand across the globe for what Pieology has to offer, and that’s delicious, customizable food served at a great value,” says Carl Chang, founder and CEO of Pieology. “We’re thrilled to team up with such a talented franchise group as we enter uncharted territories and share Pieology’s signature pizza experience with communities in these exciting new markets.”
Progressive Pies LLC is a subsidiary for Apple Pacific LLC, which is the franchisee for Applebee’s Grill & Bar and IHOP Restaurant in Guam and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands. Progressive Pies LLC has secured exclusive development rights in the Commonwealth Territories of Guam and Saipan.
“We know these markets well and we’re eager to bring Pieology’s mouthwatering pizzas and unparalleled guest experience to Guam and Saipan,” Richard Hart, principal franchisee and president of Progressive Pies LLC. “When searching for a fast-casual pizza concept to bring to these regions, Pieology had everything we were looking for, from an exceptional leadership team led by Carl Chang, to the best tasting product hands down.”
