CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. (WRIC) — Blaze Fast-Fire’d Pizza opens its debut location in Midlothian Thursday — and is inviting people to get in on the fun with free pizza all day Friday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.

The restaurant is located at 12701 Stone Village Way. Anyone who follows Blaze Pizza on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or Snapchat will be eligible for a custom-built, personal-sized pizza on the house.

Blaze Pizza is a modern day “pizza joint” that has been cultivating fanatics since it opened its first location in 2012, according to their press release. 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 carefully sourced, high-quality ingredients – all for around $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 that the thin-crust pies are fast-fire’d and ready to eat in just 180 seconds.

The Midlothian location marks the third Blaze Pizza to open in Virginia. The concept debuted in Virginia in Williamsburg last November and opened a location in Lynchburg in October. The Midlothian restaurant will have a 2900 square-foot interior that offers seating for 88, with an additional 20 seats on an outdoor patio. The location will be open from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.

“Blaze offers a quick and affordable, high-quality pizza that stands out from the competition,” said Bob Parsons, Franchise Partner for Blaze Pizza Virginia. “Blaze will quickly be the go-to pizza option for Midlothian area residents and our team is looking forward to serving them. Guests are invited to try us for free on November 18th to celebrate the grand opening of our Midlothian location.”

Blaze Pizza says they look forward to continuing to build strong roots within the community. Therefore, the company has developed a turn-key in-restaurant fundraiser program that returns 20 percent of an event’s proceeds back to local organizations. The new Blaze Pizza will be partnering with local schools, sports clubs and other groups to host fundraising events at the new restaurant. For more information, please visit here.
