Labor Shortage? So, What! Strategies to Hire & Retain Employees
Nick Bogacz went from working five jobs and over 90 hours a week to building a super successful chain of pizzerias in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. One of the principal reasons restaurants fail is they just can’t find and retain quality employees. What techniques for finding the right fit can you employ to make sure you bring the correct personalities and skillset into your pizzeria? What retention measures should you take to ensure you’re not constantly hiring, training and re-training and can instead focus on business development and growth? The labor market is tight. But you can still win.
Making Dough & Pizzas with Tony Gemignani
Sure, you could develop one dough recipe and offer only one style of pizza. But how adventurous is that? Tony Gemignani has won 12 world titles for his pizza making and acrobatic dough-spinning routines, authored or co-authored three books, appeared on several national TV shows and is owner in 16 pizzerias. His first, Tony’s Napoletana, has been named America’s best pizzeria by USA Today, the Travel Channel and Forbes. Tony also runs the International School of Pizza, where he certifies chefs from all over the world and teaches a variety of pizza-making styles, many of which simultaneously appear on the menus of his restaurants. In this workshop, pizza master Tony will help attendees navigate the ins and outs of offering multiple pizza styles to their customers. He’ll go over what you need, what you don’t and how to make a seamless transition without a hitch. Tony is ready to get his hands in the dough and help Pizza & Pasta Northeast attendees learn the ins and outs of various pizza styles and dough techniques. If you are ready to make your pizza a blue-ribbon winner, you won’t want to miss this opportunity to learn from the best!
