Elise and Rick Wetzel (co-founders of Wetzel’s Pretzels) opened the first Blaze Pizza on August 6, 2012 in Irvine, CA. It was probably the best location decision they ever made. The location is right across the street from UCI (University of California, Irvine). With so many students on a budget and being able to get a pizza just the way they want it for under $8, how could they resist.
On September 5, 2014, Blaze Pizza opened its 17th Southern California location inside the Brea Mall’s food court. Grand opening day equals FREE pizzas for the public. This is a win-win for everyone. Blaze Pizza employees get intense training, customers get free pizza, and the social buzz is just crazy!
