Two Decades Of Franchise Experience!


Founded in 2011, Blaze Pizza is a fast-casual pizza franchise headquartered in Los Angeles, with more than 340 restaurants across 38 states and six countries.

Entrepreneurs and spouses Elise and Rick Wetzel, who was also the co-founder of mall staple Wetzel's Pretzels, co-founded Blaze Pizza with the idea of creating “the Chipotle of pizza.” The pies are made to order, in an open kitchen behind a glass counter and cooked within three minutes.

The brand is known for its savory artisanal pizzas and a customizable, made-to-order menu featuring fresh, natural ingredients free from artificial colors, flavors, preservatives and sweeteners. The rapidly growing franchise has received numerous accolades, including Entrepreneur's Franchise 500, as well as the #1 spot on Fast Casual's Top 100 Movers and Shakers and Franchise Times' Fast and Serious list.

Blaze Pizza has gained popularity and recognition as a great franchise for several reasons. Here are some factors that contribute to its success:

Customization: Blaze Pizza offers a build-your-own pizza concept, allowing customers to customize their pizzas with a wide variety of toppings. This customization aspect appeals to a broad range of tastes and dietary preferences, providing a personalized experience for each customer.

Speed and Efficiency: One of the key selling points of Blaze Pizza is its fast service. The restaurant uses an assembly-line format, where customers choose their toppings and the pizza is quickly prepared and cooked in a high-temperature oven. The efficient and streamlined process ensures that customers receive their pizzas within a few minutes, making it an attractive option for those seeking a quick meal.

Quality Ingredients: Blaze Pizza places emphasis on using high-quality ingredients. They offer fresh, made-from-scratch dough, artisanal cheeses, and a variety of premium toppings. The focus on quality ingredients helps to create a superior product and distinguishes Blaze Pizza from some of its competitors.

Value for Money: Blaze Pizza offers a "fast-casual" dining experience, which bridges the gap between fast food and casual dining. While the pizzas are made to order with quality ingredients, the prices remain relatively affordable, providing customers with good value for their money.

Strong Branding: Blaze Pizza has successfully established a strong brand identity. The company promotes a fun and energetic atmosphere with a modern and trendy aesthetic. Their marketing campaigns, collaborations with influencers, and active presence on social media platforms have helped to create brand awareness and attract a younger demographic.

Environmental Consciousness: Blaze Pizza has also made efforts to be environmentally conscious. They use sustainable packaging, implement recycling programs, and promote responsible sourcing practices. This commitment to sustainability resonates with consumers who value eco-friendly businesses.

Overall, Blaze Pizza's success as a franchise can be attributed to its focus on customization, speed, quality ingredients, value for money, strong branding, entrepreneurial opportunities, and commitment to environmental consciousness. These factors have helped Blaze Pizza stand out in the highly competitive pizza industry.
