With 60 units in 11 states, the company expects to nearly double that number by the end of the year. 24 new locations are anticipated to open by the end of the summer. Pieology's founder Carl Chang says he started the fast-casual leader after he identified traditional pizza companies were boring consumers in the age of Chipolte.
