The Colony, Texas, November 3, 2011 (GlobeNewswire via COMTEX) — Pie Five Pizza Co., the fast-casual concept from Pizza Inn Holdings, Inc. , opened its second location yesterday in the Las Colinas neighborhood on the corner of MacArthur & Royal, at 6440 N. MacArthur Blvd., in Irving, Texas.
Fast pizza with fast expansion plans are behind the quick development of the new location that set out to win the hearts and stomachs of customers with a passion for fresh, gourmet pizza in less than five minutes, according to Charlie Morrison, president and CEO of Pizza Inn Holdings, Inc. parent company of Pie Five Pizza Co.
