Blaze Pizza


Founded in 2011 by Elise and Rick Wetzel of Wetzel’s Pretzels, Blaze Pizza was modeled after the Chipotle concept as a made-to-order approach to serving customers. The fast-fired, customizable pizza concept debuted with their first location in Irvine, California in August 2012 which was quickly followed two months later by the opening of their second, and flagship, location in October 2012 in Pasadena. 

The concept’s popularity has been fueled by its obsessive attention to food, design and its unique service culture. The popular pizza chain prides themselves on their use of fresh ingredients that leave out chemicals and artificial flavoring. They also ensure that all of their packaging is recyclable, compostable, and uses post-consumer reclaimed materials. Blaze’s environmental food preparation strategies have certainly paid off as well and have made them a dominant force in not only the pizza vertical, but the restaurant industry as a whole.
MOD Pizza 
MOD was founded in 2008 by husband and wife, Scott and Ally Svenson, in their hometown of Seattle. Inspired by their own search for quick, affordable, wholesome restaurant options for their growing family, they started to wonder if there were a better way of doing pizza – and business. It all started sounding pretty great, and soon Scott and Ally were opening the first MOD Pizza in downtown Seattle.
MOD is the original superfast pizza experience – a pioneering fast-casual concept that puts you in the driver’s seat. Artisan-style pizzas and salads are individually sized, made on demand, and ready in just minutes. Choose from over 30 toppings – the price stays the same no matter what you pick. Food authenticity is a huge deal for MOD Pizza – where it comes from, how it’s prepared – and of course, how it tastes. From pressing our dough daily to roasting vegetables – MOD has made it a priority to keep its food true.
At its heart, however, MOD is a platform for doing good. The idea? If they take care of our employees, they’ll take care of you, and its business will take care of itself. We call it Spreading MODness, and after opening stores across the U.S. and U.K., MOD think it’s working.
Between The Bread
With roots in midtown Manhattan, Ricky Eisen opened her first eatery in 1979 on 56th Street and Lexington Avenue. With the mission of changing how people perceived what a meal could be in a corporate setting, she completely reinvented the marketplace by replacing stale food options with flavorful, wholesome and fresh seasonal meals.

For nearly four decades, Between The Bread has been providing New Yorkers with sumptuous locally-sourced food that is unmistakable in its quality and presentation.
Ivan Ramen
Ivan Ramen is a ramen noodle restaurant with two locations in New York City, United States (Hell's Kitchen and Lower East Side) which are run by chef Ivan Orkin. Both restaurants continue to enjoy critical acclaim and have been mentioned in countless magazines, websites, blogs, and television programs. Ivan is widely recognized as the American authority on ramen and all things Japanese. His effortless crossover from American to Japanese cultures has given him a distinct advantage. He speaks fluent Japanese, and has a deep understanding of the culture which allows him to present a product that appeals to both Japanese and American audiences.
In February of 2017 Ivan was featured in the hit NETFLIX series CHEFS TABLE, instantly vaulting him into the company of some of the world’s great chefs and restauranteurs. This honor has driven even more fans of ramen into the Ivan's restaurants where he continues to serve them his uniquely  "Ivan" cuisine. 
Mason's Famous Lobster Rolls:


In 2014, Dan Beck, Founder of Mason's Famous Lobster Rolls, opened the first Mason’s Famous Lobster Rolls® as an homage to that world, insisting that the lobster rolls he serves be authentic in every respect.

For more than 20 years, Dan has been a lobster aficionado in every sense of the word. Working as a seafood buyer in the restaurant business, he paid regular visits to Maine, getting to know the lobstermen there. He was inspired by their centuries-old values and traditions, and learned to respect the ways of Maine’s waters.

Hauled right from the seas of Maine, the lobsters are immediately brought to a facility in Down East Maine, where they are cooked simply and modestly.Our lobster rolls are then prepared according to tradition. With no bells, no whistles, and no pretention. And served with only the basics: Lemon. Butter. Mayo. Maybe a little celery. One taste, and Mason's thinks you’ll agree: You can’t fake genuine.

Sus Hi Eatstation:
Growing up in the food industry, Robert and Teresa developed an immense passion for food and the restaurant business. They were in search for an exceptionally unique fast-casual restaurant, but couldn't find one. So they decided to open their own!

In just one year, Sus Hi Eatstation open its doors in 2011. Since then, the brand has built an amazing following and continues to spread across central Florida.
When Sus Hi opened its first restaurant, the idea was simple: they wanted to show that fast food served fast didn't have to be a fast-food experience.

Using high-quality ingredients, classic cooking techniques, and a distinctive Ninja theme, they brought features from the realm of fine dining to the restaurants with a mission to build a fun ninja community for creativity and passion to thrive through food, love, and family. 
In 2007, two best friends Jonathan Bricklin and Franck Raharinosy had a crazy idea—to get so good at ping pong that they could compete in the Olympics. So, they did what any future Olympian would obviously do—throw a party! The parties drew in an eccentric range of people from all walks of life, including Jimmy Buffett, Owen Wilson, Marty Reisman, 50 Cent and Salman Rushdie. The diversity of the crowd fueled the fun and vibrant energy that remains the essence of SPIN today.

At SPIN, guests come together to socialize and celebrate play. At its core is the drive to connect through ping pong—a game that transcends age, gender and boundaries. SPIN is the original ping pong social club, your offline social network, a place to call home.

Do it together and never alone.
Pizza Luce:
Pizza Lucé owner Joe Baier worked in pizza delivery until the pizzeria he worked at closed in 1992. Having worked for years in the industry, Baier decided to open a new pizza restaurant, named Pizza Lucé, which opened in 1993 in downtown Minneapolis.
