Order some pizza. Name your price. Support Foodlink. (Then eat the pizza.)
Pretty simple, right?
Blaze Fast-Fire’d Pizza has announced the Grand Opening celebration of its new Henrietta store, and has graciously selected Foodlink as the local beneficiary for its “Donation Day” event.
Blaze Pizza is a community-minded organization that makes it a point to support local organizations that work diligently to better the lives of their neighbors. As part of its ongoing commitment to the Monroe County community, Blaze Pizza (1100 Jefferson Road) will host a Donation Day from 11:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, April 11. During that time, guests will be able to pay whatever they’d like for their meal, and 100 percent of proceeds will be donated to Foodlink.
“Blaze Pizza is so excited to welcome the public to our restaurant to support Foodlink. Foodlink is a fantastic organization that distributed 17.4 million pounds of food in 2017, and we’re proud to help them continue that great work,” said Chad Tooley, general manager of Blaze Pizza in Henrietta. “This Donation Day will give our new neighbors in Henrietta the opportunity to experience our delicious menu while giving back to a good cause. It’s sure to be a great day, and we encourage members of the community to stop by to enjoy a great meal and show their support.”
Blaze Pizza is known for its custom-built artisanal pizzas, freshly made salads, blood orange lemonade and s’more pies since it opened its first location in 2012. 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 11-inch 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.
There are now 265 restaurants in 40 states, Canada and Kuwait. Founded by Elise and Rick Wetzel (co-founder of Wetzel’s Pretzels), 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.
The Henrietta restaurant, which opened in March, is located at 1100 Jefferson Road. At least one Foodlink representative will be stationed there all day on the 11th, so stop in, say hi, grab some delicious pizza and support Foodlink!
