Pie Five to Take on Uncle Maddio’s
Pie Five is about to take on Uncle Maddio’s in the quick bake customizable pizza business here in Charlotte. Pie Five was one of the Nation’s Restaurant News Hot Concept Award Winners in 2012 which is high praise. They are similar concepts where you go down the line and create a pizza any way you want it using their 41 elements (pizza toppings). You get a handcrafted pie hot to your table in 5 minutes. The already opened Uncle Maddio’s is located in the Overstreet Mall while the first Pie Five will be in Matthews but these 2 are sure to butt heads in the future due to their similarities. Pie Five has a loyalty program called the Circle of Trust where you can earn free pizzas as you build points, they will even send you a coupon for a free pizza on your birthday. Let’s hope 5 minute pizza joints don’t become the frozen yogurts of the Charlotte with one on every corner.
