The History Behind Blaze Pizza
Inspired by the efficiency of Chipotle, Blaze Pizza founders Rick and Elise Wetzel decided to create a pizza place that offered tasty, customizable pies without the wait. Hip to the world of franchises, the Wetzels had also started Wetzel’s Pretzels in 1990, which has more than 300 locations across the country. After Blaze’s successes in the initial Southern California locations, it has continued to expand, thanks to celebrity investors and new stores opening across the country. Executive Chef Bradford Kent (aka "The Pizza Whisperer") keeps innovative and delicious options rolling out, and new locations are opening all the time.
