We asked independent pizzeria owners to submit their businesses for consideration in our Pizzerias to Watch list. We received hundreds of outstanding submissions and have painstakingly whittled them down to this list of 35.
While the Hot 100 Independent Pizzerias List we used to do ranked pizzerias by highest sales volume, our Pizzerias to Watch feature looks at the total operation, from sales and employee programs to community outreach and marketing.
We present to you 35 pizzerias to watch as they continue to thrive and grow. While we asked several questions, we’re sharing one or two of the pizzerias’ Q&A responses here in this issue — in their own words.
