ATLANTIC CITY CONVENTION CENTER
Legendary Chef Paul Giannone of Paulie Gee's Slice
Shop to Give Opening Keynote Address at
Pizza & Pasta Northeast
Paul Giannone chose a career as a
corporate IT professional in the early
80s that spanned nearly 30 years. As it
turns out he wasn't really wired up for
that type of work.
Th e truth of the matter is he's always
been a pizza enthusiast at heart and has
enjoyed entertaining and cooking for
friends and family alike. In fact, they
were the fi rst ones to encouraged him
to open a restaurant, which at the time
seemed far too complicated to pursue.
However, after much observation,
thought and deliberation, he discovered
that an artisanal pizzeria was a far
simpler operation to run than a fullservice
restaurant. Th at realization
allowed him to follow his passion
to open up a pizzeria in the trendy
Greenpoint section of Brooklyn.
His journey involved befriending all
of the pizzeria owners and luminaries
he admired and respected along the
way, including but not limited to,
Mathieu Palombino of Motorino,
Mark Iocono of Lucali, Anthony
Mangieri of Una Pizza Napoletana,
Chris Bianco of Pizzeria Bianco, Tom
and Stalin of Nomad, Chris Parachini
of Roberta's and Michael Ayoub of
Fornino.
An important step in his business
model was not to treat Paulie Gee's
as a business. He's there six nights a
week and still enjoys every minute of
it, which he attributes to a welcoming
dining experience for guests.
One thing that sets him apart
from most restaurateurs is that he
likes to recommend other pizzerias
to his patrons. As a dedicated pizza
afi cionado, he loves to share his
appreciation with others and can
typically be found wearing a hat from
another pizzeria he's patronized. As a
result, his guests often ask him why and
he always points out that he doesn't
have competitors, just colleagues.
Paulie is expanding his restaurant
footprint, as well as licensing other
people to use his name and brand. At
his point in his career, he wants to help
aspiring pizza entrepreneurs reach
their goals. Most importantly, he wants
to continue to expand his network of
friends in the pizza community and
among his customers and followers.
Make plans now to attend Paulie
Gee's 10 a.m. Sunday,
October 16, Keynote Address. For

It's all about Pizza & Pasta, and it's
all for YOU!
