Blaze Pizza opens Farmingdale location, the fourth on Long Island


Long Island’s latest Blaze Fast-Fire’d Pizza location opens in Farmingdale this Wednesday, Nov. 18, at 909 Broadhollow Road (Route 110) near the Chili’s

There are also Blaze locations in Bay Shore, Hicksville and West Babylon, and Fresh Meadows, Queens.

Lessing’s Hospitality Group has a franchise agreement with Blaze Pizza and is operating multiple successful franchises on Long Island, as well as in Connecticut, an announcement reads.

“We are really excited to get this new location open,” said Lawrence Lessing, the company’s executive vice president “We have had our eyes on this center since we became Blaze franchisees because we love the area and co-tenancy.

“It has been a tough year for everyone, so it has been a nice change of pace to hire new staff and prepare for our new guests,” he continued. “We have worked hard to train our team so that we can welcome our guests to a fun and safe environment.”

The new Blaze Pizza — a fast-casual concept known for its signature handcrafted artisanal pies — will offer dine-in, carry out via pick-up or curbside service, and contactless delivery through its website, mobile app and various third-party delivery partners.

The restaurant is also offering a free 11-inch build-your-own pizza to anyone who downloads the Blaze Pizza app between Nov. 18 and Dec. 1. The free pizza reward will be accessible on the Blaze Pizza app starting Dec. 2 and redeemable through Dec. 22.

Additionally, the brand will implement best-in-class safety and sanitation guidelines, including requiring masks and gloves for all team members, availability of hand sanitizer for guests, and food safety procedures validated by a third-party auditor, the announcement reads.

The Farmingdale Blaze will also feature the following:

  • Hiring of a Dining Service Leader, whose responsibilities will include wiping down high-touch surfaces frequently
  • Small, single-use eco-friendly bags given to each guest, to store their personal masks while dining 
  • Frequent cleaning of all high-touch surfaces

At Blaze Pizza, fresh dough is made from scratch using a proprietary recipe developed by executive chef Bradford Kent, also known as the “Pizza Whisperer.”

The dough requires a 24-hour fermentation period to produce his signature light-as-air, crisp crust.

For pizza fans with specific dietary needs, Blaze Pizza offers gluten-free and keto crusts, plus vegan cheese and plant-based spicy chorizo.
