Blaze Pizza next week is scheduled to become the first of the rapidly growing crop of fast-casual pizza players to hit 50 units open.
In fact, on Dec. 18, four Blaze locations are scheduled to open, which will bring the unit count to 51, said Jim Mizes, the Pasadena, Calif.-based chain’s president and chief operating officer. The four units are in Laurel, Md.; Bayshore, N.Y.; Morrisville, N.C.; and Canoga Park, Calif.
Two units also opened in Sacramento on Dec. 11.
