In today’s business environment, the ability to bake the perfect pizza is rarely good enough to operate a profitable pizzeria. Times have changed, and what worked in the past doesn’t always produce success today.Through the pages of Pizza Today and the seminars delivered at Pizza Expo, we have been in the business of delivering solutions and opportunities to independent pizzeria operators for nearly 30 years.
Now we’re pooling our considerable resources to take our knowledge and experience deeper into the market — to help operators and managers who are looking for more personalized assistance and in-depth instruction.
School of Pizzeria Management enrollees — with training provided by accomplished pizza entrepreneurs who give seminars at Pizza Expo and by the industry’s go-to consultant, Big Dave Ostrander — will acquire the skills to dramatically improve operations and profits.
The school’s first three courses are designed to give you the tools to grab control of your finances, increase overall efficiency, hire and train the ideal staff, grow into a market leader — and enjoy the freedom to work on your pizzeria not for your pizzeria. Courses include:
