Nation’s leading fast-casual pizza chain to open Sterling restaurant Dec. 19
Sterling, VA (RestaurantNews.com) Pizza lovers throughout the Virginia Commonwealth are doubling up on a fast-casual sensation, as Pie Five Pizza opens its doors for the first time in Sterling this Friday.
The new restaurant marks Pie Five’s second in the Virginia/Washington, D.C. market. Its first location opened in Richmond last May, and was an instant success.
The trend-setting restaurant is renowned for its personalized pizzas, handcrafted using only the freshest, high quality ingredients. Pie Five’s made-to-order pies offer endless variety all for one great price. Any way you top them, the “five” in Pie Five means it all happens in five minutes or less!
Located in the Sugarland Plaza Shopping Center (47010 Community Plaza, Suite 100) off Harry Bird Highway, the new restaurant will kick off its grand opening festivities at 10:30 a.m. with a ribbon cutting ceremony compliments of the Loudoun Chamber of Commerce. Virginia’s HOT 99.5 FM will also be onsite, adding to the excitement with food and merchandise giveaways from 6-8 p.m.
A check presentation to Delete Blood Cancer DKMS will follow, as the restaurant donates funds raised from in-store training events taking place this week. The New York-based nonprofit organization works every day to delete blood cancer by inspiring people to register as bone marrow donors. For more information, visit DeleteBloodCancer.org.
“When people visit a Pie Five for the first time, their reactions typically range from ‘I can really have all the toppings I want?’ to ‘that sure was fast,’ to a simple ‘Wow!’”said franchisee Alyse Cohen. “They love the fact that they can design their pie their way and never worry about how much it’s going to cost. We’re excited to share this exciting new pizza experience with the people of Sterling, and happy to support a wonderful charity like DKMS in the process.”
At Pie Five, guests can choose from more than a million combinations of handcrafted personal pizzas and a variety of specialty pie choices, all for one affordable price.
