Pie Five Opens in Leading Global Interactive Children’s City, KidZania

Pie Five Pizza recently opened inside KidZania, the leading global brand of interactive education and entertainment centers for children. This will help children learn real-life skills including managing a bank, operating a fire truck, and cooking pizzas like a chef.

With locations in 21 different countries, KidZania opened its first U.S. location at Stonebriar Centre in Frisco on November 23. At KidZania, nearly a million children who visit each year have an opportunity to role-play more than 100 professions within an average 80,000-square-foot indoor city, helping them learn more about what careers they may be interested in, how a city works, and how to manage money.

“The KidZania experience allows kids to learn about the world of work while building real-life skills like financial literacy, teamwork and problem solving,” said Greg Stevens, CEO of KidZania USA. “We’re excited to have Pie Five onboard to give kids the opportunity to experience what it’s like to be a chef as they expand their knowledge of different careers.”

In addition to the location in which children role-play as chefs, there is also a secondary Pie Five restaurant on the mezzanine level inside KidZania for guests.

“We are thrilled to be open inside KidZania after the highly anticipated debut,” said Douglas Kwong, vice president of marketing for Rave Restaurant Group. “This is a very special opening for us because kids can now see how pizza is made and discover what life as a chef is like. In addition to learning how to prepare pizzas, they’ll learn valuable skills like food safety and sanitation. And of course, they can enjoy the authentic Pie Five Pizza experience on the mezzanine level with their families.”
