Pie Five Pizza co. set to open in Lenexa next week

Pie Five Pizza Co. plans to open its second area restaurant, this one in Lenexa’s Oak Park Commons, on Nov. 20th.

The restaurant, at 12154 W. 95th St., will serve the company’s handmade pizzas which bake in a high-speed oven in only 2 1/2 minutes. The name Pie Five comes from the 5 minutes it should take from pizza order to pizza pickup. The menu includes build-your-own pizzas and specialty pies including chicken carbonara and barbecue pulled pork, along with salads and desserts.

The new area franchisee also opened a location at 13366 Metcalf Ave., Overland Park, in August.

The first Pie Five opened in Fort Worth in 2011. In 2012, Pie Five was named a hot concept of the year by Nation's Restaurant News, a national trade publication.
