What area do you feel like you
currently need to improve upon
to continue taking your pizza
business to the next level?
We focus on quality every
day. It's a never-ending battle
to make the best product
we can. But I'll also say that
digital ordering has become
an enormous nightmare in the
industry. Third party tablets,
integrators, hidden fees, slow
delivery drivers, it can't go on like
this forever. Someone will come
in and shake it up again. That
can't come soon enough!
What is something you've
learned at Pizza Expo that has
helped guide your business?
Pizza Expo is invaluable to any
growing pizzeria. We have our
heads down all year long, working
hard and doing our best to get
better at what we do every day.
The expo is a chance to pick
your head up and take a look at
what's going on in the industry
- innovations that help us scale,
new equipment to make life
easier for our team, and a chance
to catch up with vendors we
know and love to see what they
have going on.

What do you do to motivate
your staff during these
challenging times?
We start with fair
compensation - minimum
wage or a few dollars more
just doesn't cut it. It's hard to
work in a restaurant and by no
means should it be considered
" unskilled labor " . We also focus
heavily on being proud of the
work we do every day. Our
entire team challenges each
other to get better, with higher
and higher standards set. If you
do a job you are proud of, and
are paid fairly for it, generally
people are motivated to come in
and do their best every day!
What are you doing in your
pizzeria to combat infl ation and
rising costs?
We are constantly pitting our
vendors against one another -
costs are rising like crazy and
you need to keep people on
their toes. At the end of day,
it doesn't matter how much
" shopping around " you do, we
increase our menu prices. Our
customers have been very
understanding with us, because
even the big fast-food chains
are raising prices.
