In four years, Blaze Pizza, the build-your-own pizza concept, has rocketed from two to 200 plus locations in North America — making it the fastest-growing US food chain ever, according to research firm Technomic.
In 2014, when Blaze had just 10 locations, Rick and Elise Wetzel asked Geared to help support the brands growth. Since then, Geared has created everything from their four-wall marketing, limited time offers and promotions, social media content and cool brand engagement like the selfie booth at the Van’s Warped Tour. We also developed their brand expansion manual, LTO/promo calendar and the franchise support portal, loaded with every asset a franchisee needs to fire up sales and traffic.
Since working with Geared, the Brand has tripled their units and as of Q4, 2017, they’ve reached 238 locations. They also attained over $185 million in system-wide sales and stand as #1 in Fast Causal’s list of Top Movers & Shakers.
