Build-your-own pizza chain Blaze Pizza is fit for a king — King James, that is.
In 2015, basketball legend LeBron James walked away from a $14 million endorsement deal with McDonald’s to become part of Blaze Pizza’s marketing campaigns. He’s also an early investor in the Chipotle-style pizza chain.

Revenue is on track to hit $300 million in 2017, according to a company spokesperson.
