Dallas-based Falcon Realty Advisors, a national commercial real estate company that works exclusively with retail, restaurant, and entertainment tenants, was engaged by the local franchisee of Your Pie to advise on the North Texas expansion of its fast-casual pizza franchise. The chain’s first North Texas location is a 3,000-square foot store at 5110 Eldorado Parkway in Frisco, which officially opened September 16. Cal Marsh, director of national restaurant accounts with Falcon Realty Advisors’ Restaurant & Entertainment Group, will continue to lead the search for additional locations across the North Texas area over the next three years.
Founded in Athens, Georgia, by Drew French in 2008, the quick-fire pizza chain considers itself a pioneer in the fast casual pizza concept that allows customers to customize individual pies by choosing white, wheat or gluten-free crust and a variety of toppings.
“Your Pie remains a leader in the highly competitive fast casual market because of its passion for improving the way people experience pizza in a fast-paced environment, without losing the quality—doughs are always hand-tossed and made from scratch, customized using only the freshest ingredients and ready in four minutes,” Marsh says. “Your Pie has been widely successful across thirteen states and a delicious quick-fire pizza chain is exactly what the North Texas market needs.”
On behalf of Your Pie, Falcon Realty Advisors is seeking 2,500-3,000 square-foot range spaces in middle-income markets across the North Texas area. Locations with corner or shopping center end caps with outside patios, healthy residential densities and high-density retail corridors, are preferred. Suitable co-tenants include theaters, coffee shops, specialty grocers and complimentary fast-casual users.
Your Pie has 34 locations across 13 states, with plans to open 11 restaurants by the end of 2016.
