    Anyone wanting to learn the pizza business needs to start by realizing the amount of time and money required. Work weeks 60+hours, capital 80K + operating expenses to get you through the first few months, operating expenses include things such as payroll, utiities, insurance, food supplies, rent, accountant, etc. One of the best ways to really nail it all down is to find someone who owns a shop and is willing to show you the ropes and the how to's of daily operation.

    I am a chef. the key to a great pizza shop is great pizza. learn how to make simple pizza dough, and play with the recipe until you have something unique and delicious. as for start up cost, your oven is probably going to be your most expensive initial purchase. and don't expect cushy hours. pizza may be cheap to make, but you have to sell a lot to make a nice profit. so have fun. gutentaag

    My husband and I own a small pizza shop. We are looking for the best advertising method to promote our business. We have tried magazines, newspapers mailers,etc. with little response. We are thinking about renting a billboard. We have a great rating on Urban Spoon and Yelp, but we are struggling to stay in business. We have almost been in business for one year. We feel that the lack of sales might be do to not enough advertising, but really don't have the resources. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks!

    Hi Arefa, where u from. I am from Kosamba. Now living in Malton. I also want to open a pizzeria. I think if you can make good pizza, the rest of the steps should be easy. Rent a place, buy an oven, get some chairs and tables and start cooking. Once you get started, you will get the hang of the rest of it. Would love to hear your's and everyone else's progress on the pizza shop. Inayat. rhuler@yahoo.com

  • 43. Mm! Mm! Pizza said on 7/8/2011 10:22:13 PM
    I've been in the business 9 years I own my shop and employee about a dozen people. I will advise you on some very important issues that you will have to deal with.
    1. Employees are going to be the biggest issue. When you first start out be prepared to work alot! Unfortunately you'll be dealing mostly with teens and young adults. Be prepared to go through a lot of them. You are not their career job, you are a stepping stone in their life, so they are going to come and go. When you do find a good one treat them well and pay them well. If a real good employee who has been with you a while does something wrong, say they ate something and didn't pay for it. Are you going to fire them for that infraction? If they are a real good employee all the good they done should out weigh this one bad item. Think about things through and through before you make a decision. You may go through 10 more people before you find another like them.I have 2 employees, a driver and a cook that have been with me since day one!.
    2. Location, location, location! Ive seen some pizza shops over the years move into bad locations where customers can't get in and out easily. It may seem insignificant but it does matter. Try and locate where you can be seen. Also when picking a location, for example. My brother opened his shop in a location that formerly was a pizza shop, mine also was also a former pizza shop. He had all the duct work still in the ceilings and running out the back to the exhaust. Mine was missing and I had to spend $11,000.00 to have it installed. That's alot of money. So when hunting for a spot and your lucky enough to know someone in the business take them with you. Their opinion is very valuable. Just don't ask them if your thinking of locating in their area, your the competition.
    3. Product. You are either a cheap inexpensive pizza or a quality pie with quality ingredients. There really is no middle of the road. Its extremely hard to compete against the national pizza chains. You don't have their money and your not going to get your product for the same price that they pay for theirs. Plus, most people don't like the national brands. They all lack real pizzeria taste. Everything they buy is premade, pre-cut, and frozen. It's not fresh and made in store and that will be your biggest advantage. We cut and blend our cheese, we make our own pizza sauce, we make our own dough, we buy our produce our self and prep all of our vegies. We slice our own lunch meats for subs, cook our own steak for subs etc. The only items that are frozen in our store are our appetizers. People will notice a difference and like they say, you get what you pay for.
    4. Advertise. I advertise evry week. I believe in 9 years I only missed 2/3 weeks. I believe its very important. The more pizza shops in your area the more you better be advertising. Also don't spend evry dollar you have and open up with no money in the bank to pay for bills. When I opened I had $5,0000.00 in the bank. Your first food delivery will be huge and after you filled the shelves you may have to write a check immediately until you develope a relationship with your vender. That check could easily be $4,000.00! One last thing. Don't think for even a second this is an easy thing to do. If you have alot of food service experience you know what I'm talking about. If you don't spend you money on real estate. I look at my shop as a living and breathing entity. My pizza shop dicates to me what it needs and my job is to deliver. Food, employees, bills, everything. Its kind of like a child an as a parent you have to look out for it. It can't do its self. These items are valuable pieces of information, good luck in your adventure!
    One last thing. Partnerships don't work. Go it alone

    Thanks Mm! Mm! Pizza for the great advice! I have managed and owned bars and clubs for many years, and I worked in the pizza business as a driver (and pizza maker of course) for a few years during the college days, both in national chains, and real pizzerias. Reading some of these kind of sites is kind of intimidating, but your post while precautionary, was helpful and positive. One thing I might point out is Amazon.com has several books on opening pizzerias and on making pizza, might be a good idea to order several of them.

If you want some recipes then I can give you my website and you can check some recipes with 95% of un frozen products. Do you think that fast food chain use fresh vegetable? Base of a good quality pizza is with dough, fresh mozzarella and tomato sauce and basil leaf. I am on a project to open a Italian pizzeria in india (delhi).

I am experimenting with recipes to get a perfect taste. Also finalized the location, pizza oven type(Conveyor Gas/electric). But I don't have any kind of food industry experience.

    @Mr Girish, for run successful pizza store
    1)best quality product
    2) excellent service
    3) brand your image
    if your pizza recipe tastes good to customer then make sure that you serve each and every order same taste pizza. this is very important in pizza business this is the best action plan. And for quality pizza you can use conveyor oven(middle by marshall or lincoln impinge) for best quality pizza this oven are costly but try for used on good condition oven. if you need best pizza dough use heavy duty dough mixer (Hobart dough mixer) and last about pizza training, I think not use full-time better work in any standard pizza shop and get some useful ideas ...Good luck

    Thanks for the Reply. Please also tell me the combination of cheese used for Pizza. What precaution need to take for preserving the dough. what is the shelf-life for dough. Which oil should we use, do olive oil is mandatory? what kind of cheese Pizza hut or domino's uses? Any suggestion are welcome at girishgm@gmail.com.
  • 87. Joy beginner adviser said on 5/19/2012 3:10:39 AM
    @Girish mozzarella cheese is best for pizza Domino's & Pizza hut use mozzarella cheese from USA brand they do not use local cheese but India have Amul or Indian Dairy mozzarella cheese if you need import mozzarella cheese and your dough is fresh or frozen? for shelf life your dough depend on your recipe and oil for dough olive oil is best but costly you can use corn oil....

    joydandeli@yahoo.com || Pizza Shop Consultant

  • 88. sumeer beginner adviser said on 5/19/2012 4:02:26 AM
    @girish, I agree with what joy said, but if you will import cheese from foreign country you have to follow lot of terms and conditions and its not a easy task while dealing with indian authorities. Best way to make pizza is with olive oil but its easy to import olive oil in india. If you are busy a virgin olive oil in india it cost near about 600 to 1200 rupee a litre but in italy you can buy it for 195 rupee a litre. you can even import Sicilian tomatoes sauce from italy for not so costly. But for the Pizza base I suggest you prepare fresh base because frozen base once defrost, you can't keep it for more than 48hours(hygine problem) but with the fresh base recipes you can keep it for more then 1 week. More time you base will take to inflate and more it will be good in taste. I'm using my pizza base after 5 days of preparation but I can keep it for 7 days.

    Thanks @Joy & @Sumeer!!! As I told you I am experimenting with the recipes... I tried Mozzarella then combination of other cheese with Mozzarella like Montery jack, Parmeson, chedar etc.. but still I am not getting exactly the sticky effect of cheese after baking at 500 degree Fahrenheit.. I guess I am using good quality cheese coz currently I am in Canada..
  • 91. sumeer beginner adviser said on 5/21/2012 4:01:51 PM

    @girish, u r in canada and i'm in france. normally fresh pizza base require 320 degree of temperature and there is a big difference between real mozzarella and mozzarella used by fast food chain like pizza hut . actually they r not using the mozzarella but an artificial cheese and in france we call it as protein of cheese. to have a good proportion on ingredients , all ingredient you put on pizza including tomato and mozzarella should not exceed 1.5 time the weight of your dough.

    @sachin, sachin, i'm coming to india very soon and i'll call you.

How do I go about starting a shop that features primarily thin crust pizza? I have a number of ideas for specialty type pizzas along with offering calzones and stromboli. I have taught high school for the past 11 years and this will be a definite career change, but one that I think would allow me to use more passion in my work as I love to cook.

    all talking about pizza dough making the pizza tasty and all crap , The important question is how much liquidity required , to open a delivery outlet it will cost you roughly 70000/- dollars with the over all costing of staffing, equipments , licensing, and rent includes if the area is not expensive . If a dinning it will depend on the Area and how many packs u plan to open if it is double dinning single dinning , then your cost of everything goes 3 times the amount for delivery , and just few tables then just add 25% extra to the previous cost.

    I've owned a VERY busy pizza place in va for over 30yrs. Know what you are getting into. hard work, long hours, and the worst thing employees, nobody wants to work anymore. I'm willing to turn my place over to an employee in a few years. but nobody wants it. Don't get me wrong I love what I'm doing. But I am starting to get to old for the hours.

    I've been seriously planning to open a wood-fired Pizzeria in The Puget Sound region with a focus on the Pie not the Brew. While brews are a real necessity it will not be the focus. Have researched several trailered (event based sales) and fixed ovens and the possibilities of a brick and mortar location (Corner Pizzaria)and have several options. including a new franchise opportunity from one of the best wood-fired pizza makers Ive experienced in 10+ years. I am hoping to find partners to share the work load and costs of bringing this to fruition. As I see it "The Pies The Limit." Anyone out there

We make specialised and original thin crust Pizzas that have been welcomed by our customers who have sworn these are the best pizzas they have tasted. Even people who have been and stayed abroad have appreciated the unique taste and flavour. I am looking to open another outlet in Kalyani Nagar/ Viman Nagar because of the demand from that area. I am looking for business partners who have space and willing to invest in the set up equipment and know how. We could work out on partnership terms and royalties accordingly. This is a really good opportunity for those looking to start up with an established brand. Interested? Mail me on 90degrees.sunit@gmail.com. Cheers
