Each pizza starts with a perfectly proofed dough into a generous 11-inch personal sized pizza crust. Blaze's menu offers 8 signature pizzas, giving customers a suggested starting point for their perfect pie, making ordering fast and easy. Guests step to the counter and oversee their pizza’s construction — Blaze’s assembly line format allows guests to customize signature pizzas or create their own from a variety of fresh toppings ranging from inventive (marinated artichokes, gorgonzola, roasted red pepers) to classic with a contemporary twist (ovalini mozzarella, cherry tomatoes, sauce drizzles and dollops). Blaze then sends each pizza to an open-hearth oven to be fast-fire’d. The blazing hot oven, with a three-sided flame, is the key to Blaze’s quality and speed of service.
Blaze Pizza is “defining a new restaurant category” according to Forbes and was named one of Business Insider's “ 5 up-and-coming fast food chains taking over America”.

Steve Ells, founder, chairman and co-CEO, started Chipotle with the idea that food served fast did not have to be a typical fast food experience. Today, Chipotle continues to offer a focused menu of burritos, tacos, burrito bowls (a burrito without the tortilla) and salads made from fresh, high-quality raw ingredients, prepared using classic cooking methods and served in a distinctive atmosphere. Through the vision of Food With Integrity, Chipotle is seeking better food from using ingredients that are not only fresh, but that—where possible—are sustainably grown and raised responsibly with respect for the animals, the land, and the farmers who produce the food. In order to achieve this vision, Chipotle focuses on building a special people culture that is centered on creating teams of top performers empowered to achieve high standards.
Chipotle opened with a single restaurant in 1993 and operates more than 1,900 restaurants, including 22 Chipotle restaurants outside the US, 11 ShopHouse Southeast Asian Kitchen restaurants, and is an investor in an entity that owns and operates three Pizzeria Locale restaurants.

Honey Butter Fried Chicken believes that you should feel good about your food—where it comes from, how it’s prepared, how it is served and by whom. So when you eat their chicken, their sides and their desserts, Honey Butter Fried Chicken hopes you’ll spend some time thinking about the ideas behind every bite.
Honey Butter Fried Chicken serves only humanely raised, antibiotic free chickens from Miller Amish Farms in Indiana. They butcher the chicken right in their kitchen, brine and batter it, and fry it in non-GMO, trans-fat-free canola oil. And they don't stop at awesome chicken. From the cheese in their pimento mac ‘n cheese, to the toffee in their cookies, to the cornmeal in their muffins, to the honey in their butter, they responsibly source ingredients from small farmers and like-minded, local businesses that share their values.
In their kitchen, nothing goes to waste. In addition to breasts, thighs, and drumsticks, Honey Butter Fried Chicken crafts dishes using the wings, tenders, bones, skin, and fat. They don’t dump the oil they use to fry their chickens—instead it’s sold back to their supplier, who transforms it into biodiesel fuel.
This philosophy of wasting as little as possible extends to every aspect of their restaurant. All of their packaging, from straws to cups to chicken boxes are compostable and biodegradable. In fact, Honey Butter Fried Chicken works with the Chicago Resource Center to compost 80% of all waste produced in the restaurant. Their philosophy also extends to their suppliers. They call them their friends and allies, who inspire Honey Butter Fried Chicken's dishes and provide the ingredients that help make your dining experience unique. And damn tasty.

The Boiling Crab restaurants are casual, full dining venues modeled after traditional seafood boils from the coastal regions of Louisiana and Southern Texas, where eating shellfish is a social event.
The restaurants capture the spirit of the convivial seafood boil by featuring a variety of market fresh seafood entrees prepared Cajun-style and served with different sauces, from mild to highly spicy.
The Boiling Crab restaurants feature an informal dining atmosphere with nautical theme décor. The menu at The Boiling Crab restaurants typically includes one or more varieties of crab, crawfish, lobster, shrimp and raw oysters. Fresh seafood entrees are prepared in giant pots of seasoned broth, made to order and served in bags (to preserve flavor) on paper covered tables. Traditional utensils are optional, as many consider the art of the seafood boil to include peeling and eating seafood with one’s hands. The menu also includes fried options such as fried catfish or shrimp with Cajun fries, gumbo and side dishes. The Boiling Crab restaurants serve fountain beverages and possess a license to serve beer and wine.
