VOLUME 34 * NUMBER 10 * OCTOBER 2016
The Official Publication of the
National Association of Pizzeria Operators (NAPO)

MANDY WOLF DETWILER
Managing Editor
(Ithaca feature, pp.
56-59)
Aside from falling
in love with Ithaca,
New York, I was
stunned at how
crowded Ciao! was
at lunchtime. Every
seat was filled
on a Wednesday
afternoon!

JOHN GUTEKANST
Owner, Avalanche
Pizza (Caribbean
flavors, pp. 38-40)
My favorite type
of pasta is a long,
thick fettuccine
that my kids make.
It's not always perfect but the sense
of accomplishment
and pride shining
in their faces
makes it the best
pasta I've ever
tasted.

DANIEL P. SMITH

BILL OAKLEY
Show Director
(Pizza & Pasta
Show pp. 48-50)

Chicago freelance
writer (Investors,
pp. 44-47)

Pizza & Pasta
Northeast will
deliver a one-stop
shop exhibit hall
where Italian and
pizza-concept
restaurateurs can
meet face-to-face
with leading suppliers, as well as an
education program
and pizza and pasta
demonstrations.

As a devoted fan of
ABC's "Shark Tank,"
I valued the opportunity to discuss
how to attract --
and land -- equity
investment in my
latest assignment.
Who doesn't love a
good deal?
