Patrick Schwarzenegger opens new L.A. pizza shop

By Ian Walker,

From being the Terminator to the Governator to everything in between, Arnold Schwarzenegger has done a lot in his life. Now, his son Patrick can add another unique thing to his family’s list of accomplishments: pizza store owner.

The young Schwarzenegger, a 20-year old college student and former model, has just opened up a new shop called Blaze Pizza, according to People.

Located in The Grove shopping mall in Los Angeles, the store is sort of a pizza version of Chipotle, where customers move assembly-line style, telling servers what they want on their pizza. The whole thing is a venture that Schwarzenegger accomplished by himself.

“We went around and did a raise of capital. It’s been my responsibility to oversee everything. I’m the owner, founder, pizza maker, pizza lover and anything else you want to throw on in there,” he said. “The most expensive pizza is $7.95. We wanted everybody to come have a pizza, get a drink and pay with a ten dollar bill.”

Patrick’s mom, Maria Shriver, was on hand to help out with the grand opening.

While dad Arnold was not on site for the grand opening of the shop, Schwarzenegger hopes that his father’s business savvy rubs off on him.

“My dad would go and have me go and run his charity booth at his body building contest in Columbus Ohio when I was 8 years old,” he said. “I would sell a poster for $50 and learn ‘How much did that cost?’ and ‘What’s the wholesale, what’s the retail?’ I’ve always been into [an] entrepreneurial lifestyle.”
