After being vacant for nearly two years, the former Starbucks location in Midtown Village will have a new tenant soon.

Blaze Pizza, a national chain with only one other location in Alabama, is finishing up construction at the corner spot next two Yogurt Mountain and Five Guys. The space is also expanding into the old Sports Clips location to allow for more room inside the eatery. The Sports Clips is staying inside Midtown Village, however, and opening up next to the salon across from the green.

The new pizza restaurant will bring an assembly-line style way to order and an oven that cooks your pie in 180 seconds. It's received national headlines thanks to NBA star LeBron James investing in the company.

The California-based chain opened its first location in the state earlier this year in Birmingham.
