The new 2,800-square-foot restaurant is the first Blaze Pizza in Viera and includes seating for nearly 90 inside and over 30 on an outdoor patio. Hours of operation are 10:30 am to 10:30 pm daily. The new Viera restaurant has also created 45 local jobs. Millennial Restaurant Group, the franchisee developing the concept in areas of Florida, operates ten other locations throughout the Sunshine State – three in Tallahassee, three in Orlando, two in Jacksonville, one in Sarasota, and one in Gainesville.

Blaze Pizza serves up artisanal pies that are both fast and affordable. Each restaurant features an 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 $8. Every pizza boasts made-from-scratch dough crafted in-house daily, all-natural meats and vegetables, and is finished in an open-flame oven that cooks pizzas in just three minutes. For guests with special dietary needs, Blaze offers gluten-free dough, vegan cheese, and tree-nut free pesto. The location will also offer a selection of wine and beer.

“We are excited to be opening our next Blaze Pizza right here in Viera,” said George Hazley, General Manager for Blaze Pizza in Viera. “Blaze is a one-of-a-kind dining experience that puts a completely new spin on one of America’s favorite foods. Guests will love our high-quality ingredients, diverse and healthy options, and welcoming staff.” 

Blaze Pizza looks forward to building strong roots within the Viera community. The restaurant has developed a fundraiser program that returns 20% of an event’s proceeds back to local organizations and will be partnering with local schools, sports clubs and other groups to host regular fundraising events.

About Blaze Pizza
Blaze Pizza is a modern day “pizza joint”, serving up artisanal pizzas that are both fast and affordable.  With fans lining up 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 fresh, “clean” ingredients – all for about $8.  The generously-sized personal pizzas are then sent to a blazing hot open-flame oven – the centerpiece of the restaurant – where dedicated pizzasmiths ensure the thin-crust pies are fast-fire’d and ready to eat in just 180 seconds.  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 the #1 “Brand of the Year” in the Fast Casual Top 100, Blaze Pizza has built momentum and developed a cult-like following as it expands across the country.  The concept is backed by private equity firm Brentwood Associates and founding investors that include LeBron James, Maria Shriver, movie producer John Davis and Boston Red Sox co-owner, Tom Werner.  For more information, please visit blazepizza.com and facebook.com/blazepizza or click here to view a company video.
