Fast-casual concept Pie Five Pizza Co. debuted a new prototype and logo in Plano, Texas.

The design features dark woods, bright walls and a modern aesthetic. It also introduces a new color palette that utilizes crisp white as its base.

Exposed ductwork and an open kitchen provide an airy, contemporary appearance. The design also features a new queue line design, an upgraded sound system and the addition of TV screens, and an outdoor patio with a living wall.

Additional upgrades included replacing a stainless steel panel with a large ceramic tile wall, swapping polished concrete flooring for a recycled luxury vinyl tile that features sound-absorbing properties, and adding contemporary wood table tops.
