To signify their commitment to the local community, 50% of grand opening day sales will benefit Receptions for Research: The Greg Olsen Foundation, which helps provide hospitals, doctors, scholars, families and patients resources to enhance the lives of those affected by congenital heart disease and various forms of cancer.

Festivities will continue throughout opening day with:

“We are excited to be expanding quickly in Charlotte and are thrilled to get to know our neighbors who live, work and go to school here in the University area,” says Lance Juhas, Chief Operations Officer and Steward of Guest Experience. “The feeling of community is at our core and we look forward to being a delicious option for the people of Charlotte and all of North Carolina in the coming years.”

Piada combines fresh, modern Italian cuisine in delicious, made-to-order meals. The menu, originally inspired by Italian food carts, offers guests an array of customizable options that are always prepared with the highest-quality ingredients. Guests can create more than 30 different dishes with the three available customizable entrees – the Piada, a Pasta Bowl or a Chopped Salad. The Piada is a wrap made from a thin crust Italian dough baked on a stone-grill, filled with authentic Italian ingredients.

Catering to the needs of all its Guests, Piada has a variety of grill items, vegetables, cheeses, sauces, dressings and toppings available to create individual, unique entrées, including vegetarian options. Recently, Piada launched their Hot Chicken Carbonara made with spaghetti or penne pasta, parmesan alfredo, bruschetta tomatoes, pancetta, spinach, grated parmesan cheese and crispy hot chicken.

In addition to giving back on opening day, Piada is committed to continually giving back to the communities they serve through the Piada Gives program. For guests who opt-in from the Piada app, 1% of every purchase will go directly to a charity or non-profit foundation that directly supports one of their core causes: education, eliminating food insecurity, social equality and cancer research.

Piada is a quick and value-focused dining option, operating under strict culinary standards, ensuring a safe and nutritious experience every visit. For more information, visit MyPiada.com or follow Piada on FacebookTwitter, and Instagram.
