More Information about Blaze Pizza Brentwood TN

It’s a well-known fact of life that everyone loves pizza. But here in Chicago, we love pizza. We have deep-felt opinions on crust, and we even have tours dedicated to and designed around one of the city’s most defining foods. With staples like Lou Malnati’s, Gino’s, and Giordano’s, as well as local gems like Homeslice and Pequod’s, Chicago knows its pies.

Sometimes, however, we may not want to wait a long time for gourmet pizza, so we resort to one of our go-to pizza chains like Domino’s DPZ or Pizza Hut YUM, foregoing style and substance for convenience. A burgeoning fast-casual pizza chain is looking to change that.

Founded in 2012 by Elise and Rick Wetzel, Blaze Pizza is one of the fastest-growing restaurants in the industry. Like a Chipotle CMG pizza dream, it prepares and bakes personal pizzas fresh-to-order in an assembly line fashion. Customers can either choose an artisanal pizza from the Blaze menu or create their own, choosing toppings from a wide selection in front of them. There’s seven cheeses, eight proteins, 17 veggies, and 10 sauces.

Fresh, Healthy Ingredients

Recently, Blaze launched an initiative to rid its food selection of any artificial ingredients. Aptly named “Keepin’ It Real,” the company is committed to serving additive-free food in 2017. Blaze is working with its suppliers to remove artificial colors, flavors, preservatives, and high fructose corn syrup.

Specifically, it’s also “nixing the nitrates” in its cured meats like sausage and pepperoni, removing preservatives in its garlic and salad dressings, switching to “true hue” black olives and banana peppers without artificial colors, and moving to barbeque sauce with no high fructose corn syrup.

“To deliver against our commitment, several of our sources upgraded their recipes just for us. In some cases, we had to seek out new partners,” said Blaze Pizza’s Executive Chef Bradford Kent in a news release. “It took months of review before we finally found a banana pepper that met our standards for both color and taste, without artificial colors or preservatives, but it was worth the time invested. You really can taste the difference.”

Even its pizza dough is considered “clean.” Made from scratch on a daily basis, Blaze’s dough uses just a few simple ingredients: unbleached flour, extra-virgin olive oil, filtered water, salt, and a dash of sugar. The company’s restaurants also use sustainable packaging, including cups, lids, and straws made from plant-based materials.

Unbelievable Growth

On pace to become the country’s biggest pizza chain by 2020, Blaze Pizza has exploded since its debut only five years ago. Last year, the company opened 68 new restaurants, reaching 173 total locations in the U.S. According to Business Insider, Blaze reported year-over-year sales growth of 84% in 2016 to $186 million from $101 million in 2015.

A huge contributing factor to Blaze’s fast growth is one of its high-profile investors: LeBron James.

James was an original investor in the company back in 2012, holding franchise rights in Miami and Chicago. Since leaving behind a lucrative endorsement deal with iconic burger chain McDonald’s MCD, the NBA star has played a huge role in Blaze’s marketing strategy. Blaze hopes that with Lebron James, the pizza chain will soon become the biggest name in the fast-casual business.

Our Mission

Improving people’s lives by mobilizing the caring power of communities.

Our Values

INTEGRITY
We act with integrity that inspires the highest truth.

IMPACT
We make a positive difference and have a measurable impact of enduring consequence.

VOLUNTEERISM
We have impact and are significant through the spirit of volunteerism.

INCLUSIVENESS
We are strong only when we are inclusive.

COMMUNITY LEADERSHIP
We provide leadership for community building to be a catalyst for positive change.

Founded in 1961 by five community leaders, United Way of Williamson County began as a grassroots effort to respond to the growing needs local families faced. Fundraising evolved as a strategy to bring resources to support service programs. The first campaign raised $20,071 and funded five agencies—Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, Red Cross, the forerunner to ARC and 4-H Clubs of Williamson County.

Today, United Way of Williamson County supports 48 programs through 32 partner agencies. United Way touches the senior citizen living next door, the single mother working at your favorite restaurant and the child with developmental delays whose parents need a helping hand. Your gifts also help people facing chronic illness or natural disasters.

United Way is uniquely positioned to pull together a diverse group of stakeholders and resources from businesses, government, education, nonprofits and individuals – we can mobilize around issues important to strengthening Williamson County to deliver more impact than individual agencies could achieve on their own.

Community support for United Way of Williamson County reflects the great compassion and generosity of our citizens. Through 180 corporate partners and thousands of caring individuals, last year’s campaign raised more than $4.3 million.

Today we respond as a community – united together – creating opportunities for a better life for all, and we continue to create positive change and engage more people.

We urge you to get involved and learn more about the work of our partners. We invite you to join us. You can give, you can advocate and you can volunteer.

That’s what it means to LIVE UNITED.

About Merridee’s

Jim Kreider and an exceptional team of dedicated bakers, cooks and customer service staff, continue to provide local patrons and visitors from far and wide a truly unique and delightful experience. Everything is still made from scratch, the old-fashioned way – you won’t find any premade mixes in this bakery – just bags of flour, whole grains and sugar, flats of eggs and cases of real creamery butter. It takes a lot of loving care to transform these staples into the delicious pies, brownies, cookies and breads you will find on the shelves every day. Merridee’s also features a daily variety of homemade soups, quiches and fresh salads.

Merridee’s Breadbasket has been featured in Southern Living Magazine, on the Food Network’s “Best of Baker’s Show” on Nashville Public Television’s “Tennessee Crossroads” and has received the Sizzle Award from Southern Exposure Magazine for being voted Best Bakery in Williamson County… three years in a row! Come and see why Merridee’s continues to be a favorite place for local folks and visitors to gather and share good food, good conversation and good coffee.

“It is a privilege to carry on the traditions and the heart of Merridee’s Breadbasket. We take great pleasure in the way people enjoy their experience in this little hometown bakery. Stop by, take a moment to sit, meet the friendly staff and discover the simple pleasure of Merridee’s.” – Jim Kreider, owner

The cornerstone of any bakery is its bread, and we’re extremely proud of our quality and selection. Our Egg Bread is famous for a reason: it’s made with simple, high-quality, fresh ingredients like milk, eggs, honey, and unbleached spring wheat flour. You’ll be surprised that such a rich and tasty bread can also be low-fat. No hidden secrets here; when you have a wonderful 30-year history of great bakers, you discover how to make great bread that’s light and full of flavor.

Another customer favorite is our Oatmeal Bread, which uses a wide variety of grains including bleached flour, whole wheat, oatmeal and multi-grain to provide unmatched taste and texture. Looking for something original? Try our Viking Bread, made from our Merridee’s exclusive recipe. We use whole wheat berries, flaxseed, sesame seeds, and sunflower seeds (and leave out the sugar and eggs) to make every bite flavorful and healthy.

Franklin Wine Festival 2017

Franklin Wine Festival 2017 – October 13, 2017

Tickets on sale this summer – TICKETS
Beneficiary:
Big Brothers Big Sisters of Middle Tennessee

Franklin Wine Festival 2017

Mentoring Matters. Big Brothers Big Sisters is helping Middle Tennessee children facing adversity realize a new and brighter future changing their lives for the better, forever.

Big Brothers Big Sisters is an investor and volunteer supported organization serving children with a one-to-one mentor. In 2015, we served 1,510 Middle Tennessee children with a one-to-one mentor in their lives.

Funds raised by the Franklin Wine Festival are used to conduct background checks on volunteers to ensure child safety; and provide ongoing support for children, families and volunteers to build and sustain long-lasting relationships.

The initial volunteer commitment is for one year, but our agency reported an average match length of 38.7 months at the end of 2015. Upon entering our program, children are surveyed in several key life skills areas so that we can determine the impact their role model is having in their lives.
Last year, 92% of the children in our program reported positively on their progress in key academic areas; 96% reported positively regarding their social acceptance by their peers; and 95% reported a positive result on their opinions of risky behaviors – like never starting to smoke or drink alcohol, cheating, or skipping school. In short, these children are improving their odds and realizing new and brighter futures because of the Big Brother or Big Sister made possible by this fundraising event.

Big Brothers Big Sisters is currently serving children in nine counties including Davidson, Williamson, Wilson, Rutherford, Dickson, Cheatham, Hickman, Robertson and Sumner counties.
