Blaze Pizza Announces Grand Opening of New Gastonia Location


Blaze Fast-Fire’d Pizza announced that it will be opening a new location in Gastonia, North Carolina. The build-your-own pizza concept, known for its chef-driven recipes and casually hip restaurants, will be opening on Thursday, March 19 in the Gaston Mall shopping center at 401 Cox Road.

Along with its 11-inch individual sized pizzas, the Gastonia restaurant will also offer Blaze’s new, larger 14-inch sharable pizzas for delivery and carryout, available exclusively by ordering online. The new large pizzas are similar to the chain’s original 11-inch personal size pizzas, but their larger 14-inch size, cut into 8 slices, make them perfect for sharing.

Pizza fans with specific dietary needs can also enjoy gluten-free and keto crusts, vegan cheese and plant-based spicy chorizo. Blaze pizzas are available for carryout or delivery in Gastonia through the Blaze website (, the Blaze Pizza app, or the DoorDash and Postmates delivery platforms.

Owned and operated by Carolinas Restaurant Holdings, the Gastonia restaurant will be the group’s fourth Blaze Pizza location in the Charlotte area and sixth in North Carolina. They own the Blaze Pizza restaurants in South End, University Place and Concord in the Charlotte market as well as two locations in Asheville.

“We look forward to opening in Gastonia and expanding our Charlotte-area locations,” said Jimmy Sierra, co-owner of Carolinas Restaurant Holdings. “Our new Gastonia store is ready to serve both local residents and workers the absolute best, fast-fire’d pizza possible!”
