Blaze is actually good..

Blaze Pizza is actually a pretty good for chain store pizza. I hit the one in North Indianapolis about once a month and can't argue with personal pizza made up how I want it for around $10.00 with a drink.

@AtomBomb: I agree with you. I like the fact that you can choose the toppings you want on your pizza.

LeBron James is not just talented in the court... he is smart

Many people hate LeBron because of The Decision. But let's all be honest. Most of his decisions are pretty smart. He got multiple championships. Now he's part owner of fastest growing restaurant.

Good for you LeBron!

Why can't he just do both McDonald's and Blaze Pizza?

He's just going to be an endorser right?
