Blaze Fast Fire’d Pizza, the recognized world leader in fast artisanal pizza, is giving fans in Glendora a reason to celebrate. This Thursday, March 1, the leading fast casual brand will open a beautiful 2,100 square foot restaurant with seating for 34 and an exterior patio for 54, at 1331 S. Lone Hill Ave near Home Depot.
Since 2012, Blaze Pizza has been serving artisanal pies that are both fast and affordable. Each restaurant features an interactive open kitchen format that allows guests to customize one of the menu’s generously sized personal signature pizzas or you can create your own, all for around $8. Every pizza features our made-from-scratch dough crafted in house daily, all-natural meats and vegetables, and is finished in an open flame oven which cooks pizzas in three minutes flat. For guests with special dietary needs, Blaze offers gluten-free dough, vegan cheese, animal rennet free dairy, and tree-nut free pesto. Each of these elements have assisted the brand with becoming the fastest growing restaurant in history.
To celebrate the opening of the company’s newest locally-owned and operated Glendora restaurant, anyone who visits on opening day from 10:30 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. and follows the brand on Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook will receive a free build your own pizza! Don’t forget to grab a freshly made salad, iconic blood orange lemonade, ice-cold beer, or s’more pie dessert on your way out.
“Our mission at Blaze is really simple—we’re taking pizza back to its roots,” says Jim Mizes, president & CEO of Blaze Pizza. “By making dough in-house, using carefully sourced 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. Driven by its commitment to “Intelligent Choices for Our Pizzas, People & Planet,” the Glendora restaurant is constructed with recycled and sustainable materials, uses eco-friendly packaging, and features energy-efficient LED lighting. The restaurants stylized design was inspired by our celebration of unconventional thinking and individuality.
Blaze Pizza is looking forward to building strong roots within the Glendora community. The local restaurant 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. The Glendora restaurant will also create 46 jobs locally.
