    Pizza Inn yes, probably right, it tainted me to not go there based on what it is.. Pie 5 is very different, quality is getting a hot pizza that you design that is cooked quickly. I'm at times a guy who will stop and pick up a Little Caesars as I know they are rotating hot fresh pizzas in and out with no wait. They also have very many units that perform so they are to me the leader in this consumer driven value deals.

    Not taking sides here, I think one of the points was they list "agreements" and "intents" with big numbers which do not always pan out and are inflated by every restaurant franchise to show growth that may or may not exist. To your point, if any restaurant put's down a restaurant, a location, and a date open it is 100 percent happening otherwise it is a misleading statement which owners who wish to sell franchise restaurants can't make as words are regulated and many new laws written to prevent the owners from being misled or sold a fake dream.

    Pie 5 has done this slowly, just recently they have increased units and openings but very in line and very controlled from what I have done in my past or seen in my past. No concerns on how they raise money and expand as its being thought out carefully it seems.

    I'm on the side now, I owned back in the $4 and $5 range and saw it drop in half, I got out, and I was going to buy in before the name change but did not so I am waiting. Sorry it climbed fast in past two weeks and profits will be taken at some point. It's a great niche in the pizza market, how they manage the Pizza Inn piece truly plays into this as on its own PI is not a place I would go ever.

    1. This field is becoming crowded and more are coming into it... Blaze was mentioned, Uncle Maddios was mentioned, and this is the Chipotle way for pizza. What everyone needs to understand is quality will be very important to survive here as will price. My only question is will they at some point to pull more cash ruin a great concept by adding in the PI cheaper ingredients. Don't laugh, as they grow franchise owners will demand better returns, this is where FOOD companies fail, and they cut quality, just a watch out.

    2. This field like burgers will cool down, pizza will always be around but you will see the strong survive. Are they hell bent on being the strong and not using the model for Pizza Inn which was a dead cat? Think back to PZZI a few years back, when Pie 5 was small, they did not do well, it's an old brand, it's value driven in the same category as Cici, Golden Corral, Little Caesar, it's the value crowd that goes to the at this time larger Pizza Inn. It is what it is, again keeping the quality where it is, expanding the food r/d, mastering customer service, clean restaurants and the likes, make no mistake, this is what drives a successful restaurant, always will be this way, will management put there fist down to new owners and say this is how we do it, this is what we use, if you go off in your own direction we will take away your license? May sound harsh but this is where restaurant chains fail. Grow too fast, bring in owners who know nothing about food or service just have money and just want to make money, franchise owners who go to restaurant depot to buy ingredients when corporate is not looking. This has to be a very strong business model with corporate holding an iron fist these are all facts.

    3. In the past I know from experience this stock runs up and then reports bad earnings or finds a way to go backwards very quickly. I’m on the side for now but hope they stay great.

    Sentiment: Hold

    I posted a few weeks back, I am new in here and see this as a huge buying opportunity. Yes stocks get knocked down, at times for reasons, at times an over reaction. The smart investors always use the dips to buy more if the company has not changed it's direction. That said I will be buying more at the lower prices as I bought in at $89.20 as I recall but maybe off a bit.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy
