    “My wife CaraBeth and I are thrilled to join the Pie Five family and to start serving everyone in Lubbock,” says franchisee Michael Moore. “Several of our family members, CaraBeth included, graduated from Texas Tech University, so we couldn’t be more excited to become an integral part of the Lubbock community.”

    The Moore duo currently owns and operates three Pizza Inn locations, one in Hobbs, N.M. and two in Carlsbad, N.M.

He was chosen because of his innovative thought leadership and creation of Pizza Inn’s Smart car delivery program in addition to his 24 percent increase in sales over his three Pizza Inn locations. We are very excited to have this talented duo join our Pie Five team.”
