ITALIAN PIZZA CONSULTING & Training FAQs
If I decide to start my own pizza business, at what stage should I contact you?
Ideally, is best to contact us as soon as you decide you want start a pizza business. We would discuss in detail your ideas and plan. Sometimes, customers contact us after setting the layout of the premise and fitted the equipment in. In many cases gross errors occur, such as designing space partitions of the layout wrongly (kitchen, storage, customer area, etc…) and purchasing unsuitable or low quality pizza equipment. These errors usually affect the service, as well as causing inconsistency of quality production. In these cases, during our service we try our best to readjust the layout where possible in order to allow a smoother operation. But of course, in a busy working environment the weigh of the original mistakes come alive, and sometimes our customers in the end are forced to plan again layout adjustments and buy new pizza equipment. As a result: more money loss, waste of time and stress. Project managers, kitchen designers and equipment suppliers are NOT pizza consultants, NEITHER multi-year experienced professional “pizzaioli”. If you decide to use our service, we strongly advice to contact us before you start your business plan.

I find your fees a bit too high. Why are your courses and business-consulting services worth it?
Our fees are decided in accordance to what we believe it is fair. “You get what you pay for”. Since 1989, our knowledge has been proven to be the key to succeed. “Knowledge”, “Strategy” and “Execution” are actually the main important factors to achieve success. A large number of entrepreneurs fail because they plan strategy and execute without knowledge. Many of our clients manage to open a second pizza branch within 18 months from the first opening. The majority of people use the Internet to search free knowledge about pizza, hoping to find ground-breaking information, secrets, recipes etc. The Internet offers a lot of forums where information about pizza making are anecdotal, incomplete and misleading. When creating a quality-consistent product such information must never be treated a basis for a reputable business or provide a dependable pizza-skills guide essential for restaurants, pizzerias or other pizza businesses. Many people are erroneously lead to believe that it is possible to learn the traditional Italian art of “Pizza” just by watching a video tutorial or following recipe books. In average, our existing customers use our services once per year. We can provide references in over 25 countries (Europe, Asia, South/North America, South/North Africa).
