Blaze Fast-Fire’d Pizza over the weekend opened its Akers Mill Square location, at 2955 Cobb Parkway, near SunTrust Park.
The fast-casual pizza franchise will celebrate the new opening by offering free pizza Tuesday, December 5, from 11:00 am to 9:00 pm. to anyone who follows Blaze Pizza on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or Snapchat.
This is the second location for the Blaze Pizza franchise group Blazing South, which two months ago opened their first Atlanta location near Emory University in Decatur.
“We knew we would hit it out of the park when we decided to bring Blaze Pizza to Atlanta,” Carl Hoover, Operating Partner for Blazing South, Monday said in a press release.
“So, we hit the ground running with a focus on development. We are thrilled to be opening a second location so quickly and to give even more guests a chance to try this exciting concept.”
The new 2,500-square-foot restaurant includes seating for 48 and an exterior patio.
Blaze Pizza touts itself as a “modern-day pizza joint serving up artisanal pizzas that are both fast and affordable.”
Each restaurant features an open-kitchen format that allows guests to customize one of the menu’s signature pizzas, or create their own.
Each restaurant makes their own dough from scratch using a recipe developed by Executive Chef Bradford Kent which requires a 24-hour fermentation period to produce his signature “light-as-air, crisp crust.”
All of the pizza and salad ingredients are free of artificial flavors, colors, and preservatives, and for pizza fans with specific dietary needs, Blaze Pizza offers gluten-free dough and vegan cheese.
The company in 5 years has reached over 220 locations.
