In 1983, Blackjack Pizza was founded as an alternative to the only other pizza restaurant in Colorado. In less than a year, a second location was opened by Vince Schmuhl. Adding even more stores over the next few years around Colorado, demand continued to grow. In 1988, Blackjack Pizza sold several of their corporate stores and started franchising. The next step included converting several independent operators to franchises. Their goal was to grow the business by adding franchise locations in slow, controlled growth. They have expanded into several other states growing to 42 current locations in 5 states, including Florida.

Acquired by Askar Brands in 2013, the organization has extensive experience in the pizza business, both in the recipes and the back house.

Today, Blackjack Pizza continues to enjoy serving quality pizza, salads and sandwiches to people of all ages.
