Blast & Brew Inks Three Unit Franchise Agreement in San Jose, CA

Experienced Bay-Area Restaurant Group Adds to Portfolio with Neapolitan Pizza, Self-Pour Beer Concept

March 08, 2017 // Franchising.com // Fresno, Calif. - Blast & Brew, a Neapolitan pizza franchise that offers artisanal pizzas and more than 40 taps of self-pour craft beer, signed a franchise agreement set to bring three locations to the greater San Jose, CA area over the next three years, with the first restaurant expected to open in late summer.

The Blast & Brew experience starts with fresh, hand-stretched dough that serves as a base for pizzas and split-focaccia sandwiches that guests customize with more than 40 locally-sourced and regionally-tailored ingredients and house-made sauces, before the masterpiece is baked at 825 degrees. Blast & Brew also offers a variety of fresh salads and hearty appetizers, like Harris Beef and Bleu Cheese Sliders, and a Crispy Brie Crostini served with honey and a balsamic glaze.

The San Jose locations will be owned and operated by an entrepreneurial team that brings several years of experience in the restaurant, consulting and marketing industries to the brand. The group currently operates a Pan Asian Cuisine franchise in San Jose, and previously owned several Vitality Bowl units in the Bay area.

“Blast & Brew offers a user experience that does not exist anywhere else. Guests want to be involved in the process, and we put them in the driver seat to do everything from building their pizza to pouring their beer,” said Pratik Patel, one of the franchise owners of the group. “The San Jose metropolitan area has shown significant economic growth in recent years, and at the same time is a completely untapped market for this kind of dining experience – making it an ideal spot to open Blast & Brew.”

In addition to customizable food options, Blast & Brew “Beer Geniuses” guide guests through its beer selection, helping them to choose a draft that will complement their meal. The restaurant has more than 40 rotating local and regional craft options that guests can pour themselves through a pre-paid program.

“Pratik and his group bring a strong understanding of the retail and franchising spaces, making them a perfect fit to expand our California presence into San Jose,” said Mike Reynolds, Chief Development Officer at Blast & Brew.

The San Jose location marks the first Blast & Brew restaurant in San Jose, and is part of greater growth plans by Blast & Brew to expand its presence in the South and East Bay markets of California.
