Advanced Business Training for Pizzeria Owners and Managers
School at Expo Teaches Opening, Operating and Marketing Profitable Pizzerias
Whether you’re just starting out in the industry, opening a new pizzeria or looking to improve your existing operations, our pizzeria management school will show you how to build profits and add units. Take the next step for your business with training from top pizza industry professionals and consultants while you’re in Las Vegas for Pizza Expo.
We’ve revised some course selections for the fifth year of these workshops, retained several proven winners and added a few exciting new options. Come early to Expo and choose from a variety of business-improving courses on Sunday, March 18, and Monday, March 19. And check out the four workshops we’ve scheduled for Exhibit Hall days on Tuesday and Wednesday. Pizza industry owners and managers teach most of these courses. All of the workshops provide take-home materials for you to apply when you return to your business.
The half-day or two-hour sessions are designed to serve as advanced training for pizzeria owners and managers who wish to strengthen their businesses and elevate profits.
You can also take a crash-course in pizza making from one of America’s most accomplished and famous pizzaioli, Tony Gemignani, and go on a busman’s holiday with Scott Wiener on a tour of Las Vegas pizzerias.
Sign up for the School’s workshops when you register for Pizza Expo.
