Blaze Fast-Fire’d Pizza Expands Southern California Footprint
Iconic Build-Your-Own Pizza Chain Signs Multi-Unit Development Deal with Seasoned Restaurant Operators
October 21, 2019 // Franchising.com // REDLANDS, Calif. - Blaze Fast-Fire’d Pizza, the recognized world leader in fast artisanal pizza, announced today a multi-unit development deal that will grow the brand’s footprint in Southern California.
Seasoned restaurant operators and husband and wife team, Aubrey and Jordan Andrian, signed an agreement to open three Blaze Pizza locations, with restaurants between Riverside County and San Bernardino County with the first location planned for Hemet.
“As experienced franchise owners, we were looking to diversify with a forward-thinking brand,” said Jordan. “And, we have found that with Blaze Pizza. From meeting with the leadership team to tasting the different menu options, we fell in love and knew it was a concept we wanted to be a part of and that made sense from an investment standpoint.”
Aubrey and Jordan join the brand with experience in the quick service industry as previous owners of a sandwich franchise. As parents to three young children (Ethan 9 yrs, Everette 5 yrs and Brighton 4yrs), Aubrey and Jordan pride themselves on coaching and developing strong teams. They look forward to being a part of the day-to-day and working alongside their team to give fans the Blaze Pizza dining experience they’ve come to love.
“With enthusiasm for the restaurant industry and proven franchise success, Aubrey and Jordan are a perfect fit for Blaze Pizza,” said Carolyne Canady, President International, Chief Development Officer for Blaze Pizza. “They are eager to be a part of a brand that emphasizes innovation, restaurant environment and design and the customer experience, and we’re thrilled to support their development plans for Riverside County and San Bernardino County. We’re confident they’ll be top performers for years to come.”
From its inception in 2012, Blaze Pizza has built momentum and developed a cult-like following as it expanded from its California base to bringing over 340 restaurants into 41 states and six countries.
Blaze Pizza is a modern day “pizza joint” serving up artisanal pizzas that are both fast and affordable. With fans lining up or ordering online each day for their custom-built pizzas, freshly made salads, house made lemonades and s’more pies, the innovative fast-casual concept has quickly become one of the hottest restaurant chains in the country.
Each restaurant features an interactive open-kitchen format that allows guests to customize one of the menu’s signature pizzas or create their own, choosing from a wide selection of real ingredients that are free of artificial colors, flavors, preservatives and sweeteners. The generously-sized pizzas are then sent to a blazing hot open-flame oven – the centerpiece of the restaurant – where dedicated pizzasmiths ensure the artisanal pies are fast-fire’d and ready to eat in just minutes. Restaurants make fresh dough from scratch using a proprietary recipe developed by 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 crusts and vegan cheese.
The brand’s business model, made up of extensive site selection procedures, training programs and marketing support, is designed to attract individuals and operator teams with a strong business acumen, proven restaurant industry success and an interest in multi-unit franchising.
