Win a free consultation with Big Dave

By Jeremy White

Big Dave Ostrander has consulted with pizzeria operators around the world for nearly two decades. His experience and expertise are highly sought after, and soon one lucky International Pizza Expo attendee will have Big Dave at his fingertips for a couple of days.

On Thursday, March 27, Big Dave is making a special morning appearance at Expo. At 7:45 a.m. he’ll lead a seminar titled “Big Dave’s List of 30 Secrets of Pizzeria Success” in Room N247. During this info-packed segment, he’ll boil down the lessons he has learned from his 30+ years in the pizza business.

At the conclusion of the seminar, a drawing will be held and one lucky seminar attendee will win a free, two-day, on-site consultation with Big Dave. That’s right — all expenses paid. That’s a $5,000 value. Big Dave will visit the winner’s pizzeria, conduct an analysis and offer solutions. You must be present to enter and win, and your pizzeria must be in the continental United States to be eligible.

That’s a pretty sweet prize package, if you ask me. I know 7:45 a.m. in Vegas is early, but Big Dave’s Thursday morning appearance promises to be worth it.
