Pie Five Pizza Co. plans to open its second area restaurant, this one in Oak Park Commons, 12154 W. 95th St., Lenexa. A mid-November opening is planned.

The first Pie Five opened in Fort Worth in 2011, combining handmade pizzas with fresh ingredients and the latest high-speed baking techniques. The pizza takes only 2 1/2 minutes to bake and the restaurants say it should only take five minutes from the time customers place their order to when they pick it up, thus the “five” in the Pie Five name.

In 2012, Pie Five was named a “hot concept” of the year by Nation's Restaurant News.

The area franchisee for Pie Five also opened a location at 13366 Metcalf Ave., Overland Park, in August, and is now looking at locations for a third area restaurant.
