A new pizza chain is coming to our area

Blaze Pizza signs an agreement for 3 local franchises

CHATTANOOGA (WDEF) – A national pizza chain has signed an agreement to enter the Chattanooga market.

Blaze Pizza has signed a franchise agreement with developer Bob Martin for three restaurants to open in our area over several years.

The first will be at The Gateway in East Ridge, which opens this fall.

Blaze Pizza serves “tasty artisan pizzas and a customizable, made-to-order menu made with fresh, natural ingredients with no artificial colors, flavors, preservatives, or sweeteners.”

The Los Angeles-based chain has 340 restaurants in the United States and six other countries.

“Real estate development veterans like me are able to easily identify companies doing things like Blaze Pizza. I was first introduced to the brand like most of us – as a customer and a fan. The product offered by Blaze is truly unmatched by anyone in the business, and when I was presented with the idea of ​​a franchise with the brand, I didn’t think twice about it,” Martino said. “I have extensive knowledge of the Chattanooga Market and as a longtime Blaze fan, I have no doubt the community will fall in love with the brand’s premium fresh ingredients and brand’s customizable menu offerings. .”

The Gateway is the development around the new CHI Memorial Stadium next to I 75 in East Ridge.

The 110-acre complex will include apartments, townhouses, offices, retailers and restaurants in addition to the soccer complex.
