Pie Face inks airport deal


chain, franchise, piefacePie Face will open at Brisbane Airport later this year after signing a new agreement with airport retailer, Airport Retail Enterprises (ARE).

Located at Brisbane Airport’s Qantas terminal, the store is the fourth airport site for the pie chain.

Pie Face has three outlets at Sydney Airport,  T1 is franchised but its outlets at T2 and T3 are company owned and operated.

ARE has more than 50 retail clients along the east coast and will build, own, and operate the Pie Face outlet, with the store expected to be completed by April 2014.

“We are delighted to be in partnership with ARE. They have proved to be highly successful operators in the airport environment and we expect that the new Brisbane store will be a strong performer given its location,” Andrew Lyme, commercial manager of Pie Face, said.

John Chapman, CEO of ARE, said Pie Face is ideally placed to compete very well in the premium grab and go market that exemplifies the airport environment.

“We are very happy to be in partnership with Pie Face on this new store and look forward to working closely with them in the future,” Chapman said.

The new partnership comes just one day after Pie Face signed a two year deal with South Australian convenience chain, On The Run.

Pie Face launched in Sydney in 2003 and now has 87 stores across Australia, the United States, and New Zealand, with plans for entry into the Middle East and additional international markets within the next two years.

Last year, the chain opened its first drive through outlet on the Gold Coast.
