Blaze Fast-Fire’d Pizza is now accepting applications for multi-unit franchise candidates in Miami, Orlando, New York, Boston, Chicago, and Dallas. This pioneer in the assembly-line artisan pizza category is moving fast as it just opened its first location in Irvine, CA. Their second restaurant is set to open in Pasadena’s vibrant Theater district next month.
A creation of Elise and Rick Wetzel (founder of Wetzel’s Pretzels), and featuring the talents of Executive Chef Bradford Kent (owner of LA’s top rated Olio Pizzeria and Cafe), Blaze Pizza is backed by a number of well-known investors including Maria Shriver, movie producer John Davis and Boston Red Sox co-owner Tom Werner.
The company is primarily focusing on centers that service both lunch/daytime traffic (office workers, hospitals, lifestyle, & transportation) and dinner/nighttime traffic (residential and entertainment). “We’ve received a tremendous amount of interest in the concept and are pleased to be able to now move forward strategically with franchise expansion,” said company president Elise Wetzel. “Our plan is to selectively identify those franchise candidates who we are confident can execute successfully in this category, and work together to develop Blaze into a national brand.”

A self-serve ice cream or yogurt shop POS system must have seamless integration to a POS scale to calculate the cost of merchandise based on weight of what the customer is looking to purchase. No need to re-key a weight manually. The POS reads the weight from the scale automatically reducing employee error. With the Tare Weights the POS will reduce the weight by the weight of the cup and can configure multiple cup sizes.
