Why it Works
The Appeal of Pizza
There is a very good reason why there is a pizzeria in virtually every shopping mall across the country. Studies say 94% of Americans eat pizza, making it a $30 billion industry annually.
The Profit Margins
Did you know the profit margins on pizza are the highest in almost any food prep industry? Better still, ingredients are easy to get, simple to prepare and the recipes and combinations of toppings are endless.
The Engaging Experience
Do you remember the first time you witnessed a wood fired pizza come out of an oven? So will your customers.

The ovens look great. Thank you for the amazing customer service. You are really doing things right.Michael
I think the first farmers market was a success! We cooked some steaks and pizza for Mario Batali on Saturday at a private fishing picnic, also a success!Brigitte B
Your attention to helping us grow our business is a real difference and much appreciated.Charlie
There are things about this trailer that you wouldn’t think about if you tried to build one yourself.Jacob C
I am crazy busy again this week hoping to hit $20,000 this month. I had a 10K catering gig last week. Also became official pizza for the local high school. Have BB King and Adele concert this week and a private gig plus soccer tourney starting tomorrow so doubling up on 2 of the days. I’m freaking exhausted but loving it.Dave K
I haven’t burned anything down yet!!! I’m just getting used to the heat, like we were talking about I think its trial and error and eyeing it is the best way. Instinctively knowing and testing by hand is the best way. I am understanding the oven more every time I fire it up. I have a gig next Sunday so we will be on cue for that. Thanks.Teddie C
You and your team make a great product. You once told me that I should send you a message after I have had a chance to drive the trailer. Well, I can’t believe how nicely it drives. It is simply amazing. With out having any towing experience I don’t feel overly nervous about driving it, I also feel that it is very easy to back up. Actually, it’s a lot easier to back up than I thought. Thanks for working together to offer an A++++ product. The combination of oven and trailer makes for a great center piece!Jeff
Can’t be much more pleased with my start–great press, some great early events. Have received excellent customer/client feedback–the pizza has been received glowingly. I am pretty happy at this point with my pizza product and method, but still wanting to improve and learn. No question at this point the product is far superior to anything in my general area and beyond. I would put myself up against anyone in the area for sure. The trailer so far has been great. Been real fun and quite an education learning its quirks and characteristics. Still working on marketing myself in the right places, but continue to get referral and word of mouth bookings.Peyton
I finally got a chance to come up for air (and count all my money), and am enjoying the local 4th of July festival. Its a 3 day annual event we are working, and not one person out of the est. 10,000 people in town hasn’t heard about the wood fired pies that some kid is slinging out, blowing peoples minds. Things couldn’t get better, but they will. I can’t thank you enough for showing me how to do exactly what I was dreaming of doing. Permanent location coming soon! (and website, and clothing, and business cards, and pictures. I know you feel as excited about this business as I do and hope all is going great for you too!Cody
We had a great and memorable first event. We parked the oven just off the front door of the brewery so we greeted everyone entering. The dough was amazing even in the cold weather. The oven worked great and everyone loved the pizza. We offered three pizzas and kept it pretty simple. It started out a nice evening with the sun still shining and it ended snowing 2 inches on us by 9:30. We didn’t have room to setup a tent so we were stretching and topping pizzas in the snow! What a memorable first night. Thanks for all the great tips.Sharbel
Well we got the trailer and have attended 3 functions in the last 15 days. We sold a total of $16,000 in 6 and 1/2 days and that is with 3 sometimes 4 people. We can put out about 50+ an hour (9 and 16″).The most in a day we sold was 395 pies in a day. Our bottom line profit is about 55% after all is said and done and that includes ALL the associated costs. We have learned a lot and have a lot more to learn. If you are interested I would like to share our knowledge at one of your events. I know others may not want to hear the short cuts we have taken but I don’t think we have compromised the quality at all. Our idea is to make money and we definitely know how to do that.!!!! Also you should be getting a few inquiries from this area about the trailers. We have talked it up to a number of people. We actually have had to turn down quite a few events because we are heavily booked for the next while.
Thanks for the update about the clips. The horse show ended on the 23rd and everything went great. Horse people from all over the country attended and a lot of them said that we had the best food that they have had at any horse show that they have been to. I have already been invited to do this show next year, so that is almost 3 weeks of bookings to count on each year. Also the show manager of the Cleveland Gold Cup has asked me about providing food for a show in September. People were very interested in the wood fired oven as it is a relatively new concept. People also liked the idea of pairing the pizza with gelato. We also offered a caprese salad, a watermelon salad and an italian sandwich where I made the loaf of bread to order in the oven. Overall things went very smoothly considering that this was my first big event. I remember at your seminar that you kept telling us that “you will work it out” when people had specific questions about handling certain situations. That was never more true than at this event. You never would be able to account for all the variables you might encounter at an event as each event is totally different, but as you said I “worked it out”. The gelato side of the business might be something that your pizza oven owners might be interested in to add to their business to increase revenues. Let me know your thoughts. Thanks again for your help and let me know if you have any prospective owners that may want to talk about the business. I would be more than willing to be a referral.Scott M
We just did our Third event was last Saturday- we brought 100 crusts to a benefit fundraiser that was also selling hot dogs, baked goods and gumbo. Sold out in 2 hours. WOW! It was all zoom zoom push the pies through but so much fun and a great rush! We have one more ‘practice party’ scheduled before our first big 11 day event at the end of the month. We are hoping to sell an average of 300 pies a day during this period, and I am madly making dough and rolling balls for the freezer so we will be prepared. I expect to be exhausted at the end, but we are having so much fun and it’s the best thing my husband and I have ever done together in public. I just booked 5 events in 2 days. Thank you for developing such a GREAT business concept! You guys ROCK!Sabert L
