Denny's Multi-Unit Franchisee Bringing Blaze Pizza Locations To Miami
Denny’s multi-unit operator, BLD Restaurant Group, is set to open nine Blaze Pizza restaurants in the Miami area as part of a new franchise agreement with the fast-casual concept. Asif Ghaffar and Tahir Mahmood of BLD Restaurant Group operate 12 Denny’s restaurants in Miami and have more than 15 years of experience in franchising and food service.
“After navigating the significant disruptions Covid-19 caused to full-service dine-in restaurants, Tahir and I wanted to diversify with a fast-casual concept that offered strong infrastructure and proven processes,” said Asif Ghaffar. “With the entire restaurant industry reeling in the early days of the pandemic, Blaze Pizza pivoted operations quickly and showcased its resilience, and this ability to adapt in the face of a crisis made the brand stand out. After seeing how Blaze has continued this success into 2021, we knew we wanted to be a part of expanding its presence in the thriving South Florida community.”
Ghaffar and Mahmood are scheduled to open their first new Blaze Pizza in the Miami market in the Spring of 2022, followed by a second location already under development and on track to open soon after.
