Blaze Pizza Improves Communication with HotSchedules

Blaze Pizza is one of the hottest brands in the nation. In 2018, it topped Franchise Times’ Fast & Serious list, the pub’s annual ranking of the smartest-growing restaurants in the industry. In this case study, you’ll see how Blaze Pizza reduced their time to create schedules from 6 hours to just 1 hour using HotSchedules. Not only that, but now they don’t have the manager headaches around shift-swaps and time-off requests like they used to either.

  • Scheduling in Excel spreadsheets
  • Inconsistent modes of communication
  • Managers spending too much time on administrative tasks

  • Cut scheduling time from 6 hours to just 1 hour
  • Decreased manager headaches with shift-swaps and time-off requests
  • Streamlined communication with in-app messaging

Want to see how Blaze Pizza got these results?

We wanted our managers to be more efficient and spend less time doing back office stuff. I can definitely tell we are scheduling more efficiently, so we have the right people on at the right times and that’s a win because it means better coverage.
