Blaze Fast-Fire'd Pizza Announces Grand Opening of Second New Jersey Restaurant

Free Pizzas for Blaze Pizza Fans at Willowbrook Mall Location on Friday, March 13

LOS ANGELES, CA - (Marketwired - Mar 9, 2015) - Blaze Fast Fire'd Pizza, the nation's leading build-your-own pizza chain, announced today that it will open its second New Jersey restaurant, in Wayne, on Thursday, March 12th. To celebrate the grand opening, the restaurant will offer FREE build-your-own artisanal pizzas on Friday, March 13th from 10:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. to anyone who follows Blaze Pizza on Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook. The fast-casual concept, known for its chef-driven menu and casually hip restaurants, will be located in Willowbrook Mall (1400 Willowbrook Mall), in a 2,800 foot space on the doors of the level one main entrance.

Blaze Pizza is a modern day "pizza joint" known for its custom-built artisanal pizzas, freshly made salads, blood orange lemonade and s'more pies. Each restaurant features an interactive assembly-line format that allows guests to customize one of the menu's signature pizzas or create their own, choosing from a wide selection of fresh, artisanal ingredients - all for under $8. The generously-sized 11-inch pizzas are then sent to a blazing hot open-flame oven - the centerpiece of the restaurant - where dedicated pizzasmiths ensure that the thin-crust pies are fast-fire'd and ready to eat in just 180 seconds. Each restaurant makes its own dough from scratch using a recipe developed by critically-acclaimed Executive Chef Bradford Kent ("The Pizza Whisperer"), which requires a 24-hour fermentation period to produce his signature light-as-air, crisp crust. For pizza fans with specific dietary needs, Blaze Pizza offers gluten-free dough and vegan cheese.

"We're changing the way people think about and eat pizza," said Jim Mizes, president & COO of Blaze Pizza. "Blaze provides all the options pizza lovers want, but without the wait, making delicious pizza that's convenient too."

New Jersey residents have already been enjoying Blaze Pizza since the Paramus location (65 Route 4 West) opened this past November. A third New Jersey location is set to open in Clark (1255 Rantan Road) this July.

The New Jersey Blaze Pizza locations will be operated by AMPAL Group, a franchise group led by franchisee Amit Patel.
