DALLAS, Nov. 29, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Yukon has struck gold once again! Pie Five Pizza Co., the fast casual pizza restaurant known for its chef-inspired pizzas, is opening its third Oklahoma location at 2121 S. Yukon Parkway, Suite 100 in Yukon on Friday, December 2! Open every day from 10:30 a.m. to 9:00 p.m., the Yukon location features Pie Five's first-ever drive-thru window custom built from the ground up. The drive-thru will stay open for an extra hour every day, so Yukon residents looking for a speedy meal can roll through the drive-thru as late as 10 p.m., for a hot and delicious pizza prepared in five minutes or less!
Former NFL player and current Pie Five Franchisee Billy Bajema has lived in Oklahoma his entire life and could not be more thrilled to continue expanding Pie Five's footprint in his home state! Bajema owns Pie Five locations in Moore and Stillwater along with his brother-in-law, Tyce Jones.
"It's a great day for pizza lovers in Yukon! As if Pie Five couldn't be any more convenient, now Yukon residents don't even have to get out of their car to get their favorite handcrafted artisan pizzas," said Billy Bajema, Pie Five Franchisee. "This is another exciting way that we are making Pie Five even more convenient for our guests!"
To celebrate the grand opening, Pie Five will donate 100 percent of the proceeds from their pre-opening events on November 29 and 30 to Santa's Toy Shoppe, an organization that brings holiday spirit to local underprivileged children. In addition, the white-bearded legend himself, Santa Claus, will be in-store on opening day to take photos with children and collect toy donations for Santa's Toy Shoppe. Pie Five will accept toy donations for the organization through December 3.
With a selection of more than 28 fresh toppings, seven savory sauces and four made-from-scratch crusts, Pie Five has something for every member of the family! Artisan ingredients like marinated artichoke hearts, caramelized onions and sun-dried tomatoes are sure to add a fun twist to any traditional pizza, while packing a tasty punch of flavor. Pie Five also offers gluten-free crust and vegan cheese, ensuring pizza enthusiasts of all dietary restrictions can sink their teeth into a warm, bubbly pie. A freshly tossed salad or indulgent chocolate chip cookie is the perfect addition to any Pie Five pizza.
