Smyrna is the fifth location opened by local businessmen Rich Davis and Ron Payne of Music City Pie Works, LLC. Davis and Payne plan to open another five locations in the Nashville area in the future.
Pie Five's dedication to giving back to the community aligns with Tennessee's state nickname, The Volunteer State. In the spirit of giving, Pie Five is donating a percentage of pre-opening sales to the Best Buddies of Smyrna, an organization that creates friendship, employment and leadership development opportunities for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Pie Five will present the Best Buddies of Smyrna with a check at the grand opening on Friday, December 18 at 10:30 a.m.
Pie Five pies bake in just 145 seconds in a custom-designed, state-of-the-art oven. Guests can add one of Pie Five's freshly tossed handmade salads or a decadent home-baked brownie or cookie pie to their meal. In addition, Pie Five's lead "Pie-intist," Patty Scheibmeir, creates several signature pies and deserts every year.
