The Backblaze of Pizza?


Backblaze and pizza? Two great tastes that taste great together, right? Recently, one of our employees checked out a pizza place near his home called “Blaze Pizza.” The next day, he wrote to the company:

“Blaze Pizza” is basically the Backblaze of pizza: They offer one size of pizza, but unlimited toppings for one flat price. Sound familiar?

It’s fast, friendly, and pretty straightforward. Their logo and name are eerily similar to ours…and also a “red” color scheme, though it’s a bit more orange than us. It’s pretty decent pizza too!

After seeing the menu, another employee pointed out, “We have 180TB in a Pod, and they make you a pizza in 180 seconds.” Delicious.
