Blaze Pizza Prepares to Open in Downtown Newark

Newark, New Jersey: One of the fastest growing pizza chains in the country will open its first Essex County location in Downtown Newark this week. 

Blaze Fast Fire'd Pizza confirmed in July that a location would open within the new Shoppes on Broad development at 691 Broad Street, between Starbucks Coffee and Nike Factory Store. 

Customers will be able to choose from a variety of toppings on their pizza before the pizza is baked for three minutes. 

Now, according to the company, the restaurant will open on Thursday, November 19th, though a grand opening celebration will be held the next day on Friday, November 20th. Free pizzas will be distributed to all during the celebration from 10:30am to 8:00pm. 

The Shoppes on Broad are part of the new Prudential tower complex, which was built at the site of the former S. Klein on the Square Department Store. 

This will be Blaze Pizza's fourth New Jersey location.
