The countdown to International Pizza Expo in Las Vegas is in full swing. While the exhibit hall opens on Tuesday, March 20, the “New Operator Monday” educational program is exactly one week from today.

The Monday program of seminars and the early-evening reception on March 19 are designed for anyone starting a new pizza company or seeking to improve their pizza menu.

Three unique sessions aimed at helping new operators prosper, along with another series of sessions designed to help pizza companies of all types upgrade their pizza flour and cheeses and manage the business they do with distributors, are on tap for March 19.

And it all kicks off with a topic that should appeal to both new and experienced operators alike with an opening special seminar on “finding your niche.” John Gutekanst, an accomplished pizzaiolo, baker and owner of Avalanche Pizza in Athens, Ohio, will lead the session. He says he plans to teach attendees how to “use creativity, absurdity and street smarts” to inspire their menus.

Take a peek at Monday’s full lineup of events.
