Local Fans Welcome New Blaze Fast-Fire’d Pizza in Jupiter

May 2, 2019

LOS ANGELES, May 02, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Blaze Fast Fire’d Pizza, the recognized leader in fast, artisanal pizza, today announced it will open its fifth Palm Beach County restaurant on Tuesday, May 7th, in Jupiter’s Sims Creek Plaza at 1697 West Indiantown Road.

Blaze Pizza will celebrate its grand opening with a FREE build your own pizza for anyone who visits Blaze’s new Jupiter location on Tuesday, May 7th, 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., and downloads the Blaze Pizza App. The restaurant expects to give away more than 1,000 pizzas that day, according to Adam Cummis, president of the South Florida franchise group.

Since 2012, Blaze Pizza has become one of the nation’s fastest growing restaurant brands by serving artisanal pies that are both fast and affordable. With interior seating for 44, and an exterior patio for 28, the Jupiter restaurant, which is creating 50 new jobs, features a 2,000-square-foot interactive open kitchen format that allows guests to customize one of the menu’s generously sized personal signature pizzas or create their own, all for around eight dollars.

Our pizzas feature original, made-from-scratch dough crafted in-house daily and two new gluten-free crust options, all-natural meats and vegetables, and are finished in an open flame oven in just three minutes. For guests with special dietary needs, Blaze offers gluten-free dough, vegan cheese, animal rennet free dairy, and tree-nut free pesto. Also featured on the restaurant’s menu are freshly-made salads, iconic blood orange lemonade, and signature s’more pies for dessert.

New items on the menu in Jupiter are two additional crust options that will soon be available at all South Florida Blaze Pizza locations and nationwide: cauliflower gluten-free crust with added vegetables, and a low-carb crust with only six grams of net carbs that is full flavor and gluten free.

Blaze’s obsessive attention to detail extends well beyond the food. Driven by its commitment to “Intelligent Choices for Our Pizzas, People & Planet,” the Jupiter restaurant is constructed with recycled and sustainable materials, uses eco-friendly packaging, and features energy-efficient LED lighting. The restaurant’s stylized design was inspired by the company’s celebration of unconventional thinking and individuality.

“Our Palm Beach County fans have been clamoring for us to open a Blaze Pizza in Jupiter,” said Cummis. “We think Jupiter is a perfect home for our newest restaurant, and I look forward to introducing new fans to our high-quality, customizable pizzas without the wait.”

Blaze Pizza is committed to building strong roots within the local community by partnering with schools, sports clubs and other organizations to host turnkey in-restaurant fundraisers that return 20 percent of an event’s proceeds back to local organizations. Blaze Pizza’s signature school program features Fire in Your Belly student reward certificates offered to schools at no cost.

The South Florida franchise group, owned in part by NBA star LeBron James, now includes eight locations: West Kendall, Davie, Fort Lauderdale, Boca Raton, West Boca, Royal Palm Beach, Palm Beach Gardens and Jupiter.

About Blaze PizzaBlaze Pizza is a modern day “pizza joint” serving up artisanal pizzas that are both fast and affordable. With fans lining up or ordering online each day for their custom-built pizzas, freshly made salads, house made lemonades and s’more pies, the innovative fast-casual concept has quickly become one of the hottest restaurant chains in the country. Each restaurant features an interactive open-kitchen format that allows guests to customize one of the menu’s signature pizzas or create their own, choosing from a wide selection of real ingredients that are free of artificial colors, flavors, and preservatives. The generously-sized pizzas are then sent to a blazing hot open-flame oven – the centerpiece of the restaurant – where dedicated pizzasmiths ensure the artisanal pies are fast-fire’d and ready to eat in just minutes. Restaurants make fresh dough from scratch using a proprietary recipe developed by Executive Chef Bradford Kent (the “Pizza Whisperer”), which requires a 24-hour fermentation period to produce his signature light-as-air, crisp crust. For pizza fans with specific dietary needs, Blaze Pizza offers gluten-free dough and vegan cheese.

Recently named #1 ‘Brand of the Year’ in the Fast Casual Top 100, the fast-growing chain is backed by private equity firm Brentwood Associates and founding investors which include LeBron James, Maria Shriver, movie producer John Davis and Boston Red Sox co-owner Tom Werner.
