The Gaithersburg-Germantown Chamber of Commerce (GGCC) supported Pieology Pizzeria and celebrated the grand opening of their restaurant by conducting a “Ribbon Cutting” Ceremony for them on Tuesday, September 20, 2016. They are located at 15780 Shady Grove Road in Gaithersburg.

Pieology Pizzeria is a fast casual made to order pizzeria. The modern pizzeria allows you to enjoy fresh & flavorful pizza with signature sauces and dozens of fresh toppings or salads. You can choose your favorite flavor combination and it’ll be ready under 5 hot minutes.
