Pie Five Pizza is opening its first Arkansas location on Friday at Hurricane Creek Village shopping center in Benton, where it will serve handcrafted, made-to-order pizzas.
Moses Tucker Real Estate of Little Rock announced Wednesday that Pie Five has entered the Arkansas market. President Chris Moses and senior broker Eric Nelson completed their first Pie Five deal with plans of opening more throughout the state in the coming months.
Rob Byford is the Arkansas franchisee for Pie Five.
"We are excited to be working with Pie Five to bring this great concept into the Arkansas market and look forward to the opening of multiple stores throughout the state in the upcoming months," Moses said in a news release.
Hurricane Creek Village, anchored by Kroger and Academy Sports, is located at the northeast corner of Interstate 30 and Alcoa Road in Benton. The new Pie Five store is about 3,000 SF with an outdoor patio.
"Pie Five’s choice of Hurricane Creek Village is an excellent location for their first store in the Central Arkansas market," Nelson said.
The restaurant allows patrons to build and enjoy their own creations, or a signature pie, in less than five minutes. The restaurant offers combinations of "farm fresh" ingredients, sauces and crust varieties.
