Los Angeles-based chain Blaze Pizza will be opening five new locations between New Orleans and Baton Rouge.
The "fast-fir'd" pizza chain backed by NBA superstar LeBron James is known for personal sized, build-your-own pies and is priced affordably.
Blaze made the multi-unit deal for the new locations with brothers Kaleb and Khai Duong and partner Jacob Strider, who together opened the first New Orleans Mooyah Burgers, Fries and Shakes five years ago.
Blaze Pizza currently has 340 restaurants into 41 states and six countries.
