On May 1st, 2013 we published an article about how the first ever Blenz location suddenly closed it’s doors. At some point last week, it was reported to the VCSFA that the doors silently re-opened. At this point we do not know who the new Franchisees are, and Mr. Kormi remains unable to comment further at this point, and has strongly encouraged us to seek out further details from Blenz head office.
In times past, and at all known locations, Blenz performed a re-opening party where the public was offered free drinks, live music, and munchies to showcase the fact that the location is now under new management. In this case, there was no such party and detailed information about the new Franchisee has apparently not been released to the chain. When we asked a few Blenz Franchisees of nearby downtown locations about the closure most were unaware that the store had closed and re-opened until we had asked the question.
Stay tuned as we bring you the latest updates.
