Pizza Today - January 2018 - 49

pieced together with blood, sweat
and tears. Everything when we built
it was just bootstrapped. How do
we get this done? Where do I get
this equipment? Two grand, that's
the magic number on this tour
of my build out. Everything was
$2,000." He says that's what he had
to spend when shopping for each
element, from lighting and seating to
countertops.
The Campbells meticulously
selected dining-area details that fit a
timeless 1940s to 1950s feel. A large
black and white family photograph
(circa 1955) is a focal point. The open
kitchen offers make-line seating. The
bar stools mimic the cozy booths
banked on one side.
The end result is a sleek, classic and
comfortable space that seats 50 inside
and 50 outside seasonally.

The space is only part of the guest
experience. The Campbells' team
of 47 and the exquisite way food is
prepared are also key components.
Red Wagon's culture is very family
oriented. "We have that mentality
that we are going to take the
mountain," he says. "We're going to
do it together.
"In the kitchen, specifically, I would
definitely say there is a little bit of
that 'Yes, chef ' mentality, which I
appreciate and encourage because
it fosters respect." He has instituted
policies, like not scolding team
members publicly, to avoid some of
the stereotypes prevalent in chefdriven kitchens.
"We take (guests) on a journey
when they come here, so those
(employees) that we have like Joe here
on the (make) line, he's going to be

talking to guests all day long," he says.
"We put on a show. Our kitchen staffs
are tipped out by the servers because
we are part of the guest experience."
That is why hiring is so vital.
"Staffing is easily one of the most
difficult things we do - finding
people that really impact the guest
experience."
Another notable contribution that
customers rave about in reviews is
Campbell's presence on the floor or
wherever else he needs to fill in. "I'm
always washing dishes," he jokes.
"My philosophy with my team is
I won't ask you to do a job that I
won't normally do." His passion and
enthusiasm is noticed and appreciated
by Red Wagon's customers.
During Pizza Today's visit,
Campbell kept his keen peripheral
view on the day's prep and service.
