This year’s Pizzeria of the Year is Texas-based Via 313. Owned and operated by Brandon and Zane Hunt, this Austin establishment has skyrocketed in both stature and sales since the brothers first opened with a pizza trailer in 2011.
Nine years, a brick-and-mortar restaurant and $12 million in annual sales later, the Hunt Brothers clearly are onto something. Without question, Via 313 is one of the hottest pizzerias in the country.
The aforementioned brothers have quite a story, and Executive Editor Denise Greer tells it well. Check it out and I’m sure you’ll see why we selected them for the honor.
Elsewhere in the issue you’ll read about ways to keep dough from sticking to the peel, how to monitor and improve ticket times, scratch dressings … all the things that make Pizza Today the magazine you know and trust.
After you finish with the magazine, pop on over to PizzaToday.com to check out our new podcast — The Hot Slice — as well as our new video series, “Checking In With…”
These items are gaining lots of traction, and I’m dying to know what you think after you give the podcast a listen. We’re getting in depth with operators across the country about the issues impacting you today. It’s good entertainment and useful insight that I think you’ll love.
