Chestnut Land Co. and Muransky Cos., based in Youngstown, Ohio, are launching a new pizza concept called Rise Pies Handcrafted Pizza.

Rise Pies New Store Concept

The chain’s first locations are in Youngstown, Ohio and Bradenton, Florida. Rise Pies features the assembly line concept where you build your own pizza, pick your toppings and it cooks in a high-quality oven you’d see in a sit-down restaurant.

The pizza concept developed because the franchise owner wanted to offer a pizza concept to pair with their other franchise, Auntie Anne’s Soft Pretzels, when they talked with malls for new locations. Rise Pies features a great atmosphere, but in the comfortable $10 check setting.
