Pie Five coming to PennsylvaniaTexas pizza chain opens in Chambersburg, with 2 York-area openings planned by June
A Texas-based pizza chain is expanding into Pennsylvania with a new restaurant in Chambersburg, and other parts of the midstate are soon to come.
Pie Five Pizza Co., which has over 100 locations nationwide, plans to open Friday in Chambersburg, making it the 24th state for the restaurant chain.
Two locations in York County are to open in the first half of this year, a spokeswoman for Pie Five said Thursday.
The first, 890 Loucks Road (Route 30) in York City, is tentatively set to open in mid-April.
And one planned for 3001 Concord Road in Springettsbury Township is slated to open in late June.
The new Chambersburg location is at 580 Walker Road. Its hours of operation will be 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.
The Pie Five franchisee, midstate businessman Peter Ballantine, is a former McDonald's franchisee with more than 20 years of experience in the restaurant industry, Pie Five said in a news release.
The Chambersburg location marks the first installment of a development deal with Ballantine that includes up to 34 locations in Pennsylvania and Ohio, they said.
Pie Five has donated a percentage of proceeds from the new restaurant’s pre-opening events to the Four Diamonds Fund, which helps juvenile cancer patients at Penn State Children's Hospital.
Dallas-based Pie Five is a subsidiary of RAVE Restaurant Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: RAVE), which owns, franchises and supplies more than 300 Pie Five and Pizza Inn restaurants in the U.S. and internationally.
