Shortly after announcing its plans to expand nationally, Blaze Pizza has appointed Carolyne Canady as vice president of Franchise Sales.

In this role, Canady is responsible for franchise recruitment and developing and implementing expansion plans, including bringing Blaze Pizza franchises to major markets such as Los Angeles, Boston, Miami and San Francisco.

Prior to joining Blaze Pizza, Canady served as director of Franchise Sales for Buffalo Wild Wings Inc., a position she held from March 2007 until October 2012. In that role, Canady oversaw all aspects of the company's franchise sales and development, and under her leadership, the company created more than 280 new franchise and development agreements.

Canady has been recognized as a Certified Franchise Executive by the Institute of Certified Franchise Executives, the academic branch of the International Franchise Association.

"We're thrilled to have Carolyne on the Blaze Pizza team," said Elise Wetzel, president of Blaze Pizza. "Carolyne played a key role in Buffalo Wild Wings' rapid growth and expansion, and we're looking forward to her experience and leadership, in achieving similar results for Blaze Pizza."
