New pizza restaurant lets you build your own pie

Your Pie started in Athens, Georgia but has spread across the South and beyond, going as far as Iowa and California. But with two locations opening in Charlotte and Cary, it will finally enter North Carolina in the coming months.

Local owner Jack Fladeland said the interest in opening a store in Cary stems from good word-of-mouth about the town.

“It’s growing and it’s a great spot to be,” Fladeland said. “I’ve got a six-month-old and we want to raise her in a good town.”

Fladeland compared the structure of going to Your Pie to restaurants such as Chipotle, with a customizable selection for customers.

“We hand-toss all our dough – white, wheat and gluten-free – and work you down the line. You pick dough, sauce, cheese, toppings, vegetables, everything,” Fladeland said. “Then we put it in our brick oven. From start to finish, from when you walk in, to when you sit down… you’re in control.”

Fladeland is from Mebane, where his family owns a number of Subway franchise locations and now Fladeland said he wants to open and run his first restaurant with Your Pie.

“I looked at a lot of places and this one kept standing out,” Fladeland said. “And it’s exciting. It won’t be my family running this place with me helping. It’s mine.”
