Pie Five Pizza today announced that the fast-casual pizza chain has executed an Area Development Agreement with two new franchisees, set to open restaurants in Murphy and Prosper, Texas, later this year.
Charlie Clark of Pie Squared Investments Murphy, LLC signed an agreement to bring Pie Five to Murphy, Texas. Clark has several years of restaurant experience, including working with well-known pizza brands Mr. Jim's Pizza and Cicis Pizza. Clark owned a Mr. Jim's in Sherman, Texas, for 12 years and has managed three Cicis Pizza locations. Clark's Pie Five restaurant is expected to open in November at 109 Murphy Road.
"Pie Five's high-quality, customizable pizzas are unlike anything else I've seen," Clark said. "Pie Five's menu, customer service and franchising model make it the ideal restaurant for Murphy. I look forward to establishing this unique concept in the community and being the go-to spot for craft pizza."
Shelia Afzal of Goldberg Funding, LLC signed an agreement to bring Pie Five to Prosper, Texas. Goldberg Funding owns five other Pie Five restaurants in the DFW metroplex in addition to franchising other restaurant concepts in the Dallas area. Prosper's new Pie Five is projected to open in December.
"Pie Five has been very successful for us, so we are excited to introduce the brand to everyone in Prosper," Afzal said. "We have no doubt that the community will love our personal, hand-crafted pizzas. We look forward to hiring a great team to join us in serving the Prosper community."
