Blaze, which was founded in 2011, is one of the fastest-growing restaurants ever and is nearing a deal that would value the company at $100 million, according to Bloomberg News.
Lebron invested in Blaze Pizza in 2012, Blazes casual-pizza or as some call it assembly line pizza is a concept that has been widely accepted. So much so that the franchise has grown from two to 200 franchises in just four years. The chain is slated to make $300 million in sales this year, an increase from the $184 million it made in 2016.
Lebron is all about ownership and turned down a $14 million deal with McDonald’s to represent a product that guaranteed him ownership and several franchises, as mentioned on Uninterrupted’s “Kneading Dough”. Uninterrupted is the sports platform that Lebron owns.
Talk about making moves.
