LeBron James Investing in Pizza

Basketball star, LeBron James is one of a group of investors who are opening multiple pizza restaurants in South Florida.

The group plans on opening 10 Blaze Pizza restaurants. The first two are scheduled to open in Fort Lauderdale and Boca Raton. They will be opening in the fall. A third restaurant will open sometime in early 2015, but the location is not known at this time.

Blaze Pizza is based out of California. They serve select signature pizzas, but also allow their customers to have a ‘build your own’ experience with a broad selection of ingredients. The menu at Blaze Pizza includes desserts as well. Pizzas are cooked in an open flame oven in under 3 minutes. All pizzas are less than $8. The restaurant also has gluten-free dough and vegan cheese options for their customers.

The investment group is lead by Levy Family Partners. The same group is also targeting Chicago for an additional 15 restaurants. Blaze Pizza was founded in 2011. Currently there are about 25 restaurants in existence, located in California, Milwaukee, Detroit and Indianapolis.
