Blaze Fast Fire’d Pizza celebrated the opening of its newest location in Red Deer, Alta., by allowing customers to build their own free pizzas.
On Aug. 24, customers were invited to follow the food service franchise system on social media and visit the location between 11 a.m. and 10 p.m. to participate in the promotion.
“Our mission at Blaze is really simple: we’re taking pizza back to its roots,” said Jim Mizes, the company’s CEO. “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.”
The franchise has developed a turn-key in-restaurant fundraiser program that returns 20 per cent of an event’s proceeds back to local organizations, and will be partnering with local schools, sports clubs, and other groups to host fundraising events. The new location will also create 50 local jobs.
“We are thrilled to open Blaze Pizza in the Red Deer community,” said Jared Taylor, the franchisee.
Each restaurant features an interactive open kitchen format that allows guests to customize one of the menu’s personal signature pizzas or create their own.
