Your Pie Grows Tennessee Footprint, Opens In Chattanooga

Down-The-Line Pizzeria Brings Customizable Experience To Gunbarrel Road

Monday, April 2, 2018

Your Pie, the original fast casual pizza concept, opens in Chattanooga on April 13 at 1919 Gunbarrel Road, Suite 103. The brick-oven pizzeria offers a customizable, down-the-line experience at its more than 50 stores nationwide. 

Your Pie Chattanooga is the first location for Harshil Patel, who looks forward to introducing the community to a new way to experience pizza. 

“I previously worked as a financial analyst but always dreamed of owning my own business here in Chattanooga,” said Mr. Patel. “After researching several different franchise opportunities, I found that none compared to the quality of product and people at Your Pie. The support system is incredible, and the food is absolutely unparalleled. We are excited to create a fun, family-friendly atmosphere that fosters connection and encourages community, all while enjoying delicious, customized pizza, salad and paninis.” 

Prior to its official grand opening, Your Pie Chattanooga will host ‘Dine and Donate’ events on April 9, 10 and 11 from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. and 5-7 p.m. During each shift, the restaurant will serve free pizzas for up to 200 registered guests and collect monetary donations on behalf of Westview Elementary School PTA.

Inspired by his Italian honeymoon, Your Pie was founded in 2008 by culinary entrepreneur Drew French, who aimed to create an innovative restaurant concept offering high quality, brick-oven pizza at incredible speed. Your Pie began franchising in 2010 and now shares its mission with more than 50 stores across the United States, with about 50 locations in development.  

Your Pie uses hand-tossed dough, only fresh ingredients, homemade pizza sauces and salad dressings, and offers vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free pizzas, as well as traditional pizzas, chopped salads and paninis. All menu items, including its rotating seasonal menu, are inspired by family recipes from the Italian island of Ischia. The brand also offers local craft beer and Italian-style gelato pairings designed to compliment guests’ custom pizza creations.  

“At Your Pie, we believe that food can be fresh, fast, delicious and experiential,” said Founder and President Drew French. “We want to be the go-to fast casual restaurant where families, friends, colleagues and groups can gather, dine and share memories without having to share pizzas. We’re excited for the opportunity to bring the original fast casual, individualized pizza concept to Chattanooga and the surrounding communities.”  

Your Pie Chattanooga is at 1919 Gunbarrel Road, Suite 103 (next to Smoothie King) and can be reached at 498-4948. For more information, visit www.yourpie.com

Why Are Joda Thongnopnua And Phil Bredesen Downplaying Their Democratic Values?

For the past several months, the Democratic Party has reached a tipping point. “Their Resistance” is to oppose anything and everything Republicans are doing to deliver a stronger economy and better economic opportunities for all Americans.  Yet, I find it very interesting that the public outcry we are seeing from the Democrats on a national level is nowhere to be found when ...

Roy Exum: It’s ‘Tennessee Week’

For over 50 years I have heard the line, “There are two things you must never do on ‘The Third Saturday of October.’ You mustn’t ever marry and try not to die because, in either case, the preacher won’t show up.” He’ll be watching “The Game.” Ever since Oct 18, 1901, Tennessee and Alabama have been going at it and that inaugural game set the tone as well as the standard for all ...
