Blaze Fast Fire’d Pizza opened its first Colorado location in the greater Denver area, on Thursday, June 9. To celebrate the grand opening, the restaurant will offer free build-your-own artisanal pizzas on Friday, June 10 from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. to anyone who follows Blaze Pizza on Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook. The highly anticipated restaurant, which features a 2,700-square-foot interior with seating for 81, and an additional 24 seats on an exterior patio, is located in Broomfield at 4700 W. 121st Avenue, near Broomfield Plaza and Walmart.
“Our mission at Blaze is really simple: we’re taking pizza back to its roots,” says Jim Mizes, president and COO of Blaze Pizza. “By making dough in-house, carefully sourcing ingredients, and cooking by fire, we’re giving guests a great way to enjoy artisanal pizza without the wait. It’s changing the way people think about and eat pizza.”
Blaze’s obsessive attention to detail extends well beyond the food, with a carefully considered, modern approach to restaurant design. Driven by its commitment to “Intelligent Choices for Our Pizzas, People & Planet,” the restaurant is constructed with recycled and sustainable materials, uses eco-friendly packaging, and features energy-efficient LED lighting. Additionally, many of the restaurant’s unconventional design elements were inspired by the company’s celebration of individual expression.
Blaze Pizza is looking forward to building strong roots within the community. To that end, the company has developed a turn-key in-restaurant fundraiser program that returns 20 percent of an event’s proceeds back to local organizations, and will be partnering with local schools, sports clubs and other organizations to host fundraising events at the new restaurant.
