Growth. Crazy growth. How much growth? Let’s look at the numbers. Blaze more than tripled systemwide sales between 2014 and 2015, from $30 million to $101 million. The company, which had 2 units in 2013, is opening a store somewhere in the North America every 3.8 days and will have close to doubled their 2015 year-end store count of 105 stores by the end of 2016. All franchise territories in the US and Canada are spoken for. Look for an IPO before 2020.
