By Anna Phommatham and Luis Galarza,

Do You Really Need Experience When Starting A Pizza Business or Pizzeria? Well The Answer Is Yes and No!

When I open my first restaurant in the area of Fitchburg MA, back in 1999 I didn't know nothing about the restaurant business, I had good business sense and a big entrepreneur's mind... I was successful in every business I got into. So, I apply everything I learn about business and marketing in the new restaurant and turn it into a success.

So, what's the real answer for question? Do you or do you not really need experience to start a pizza restaurant business or pizzeria?

Yes, if...

Yes, you need experience about the pizza business environment, if you don't have strong knowledge about business planning or management, and marketing. Opening a pizza restaurant requires you to learn about building floor planning, licensing, permits, and food health issues. But, don't worry, you can get all this information at your local license commissioner office in your town's city hall. They will give you a list of everything you need to open a legal restaurant in your town.

Also, as you know, you will need to know how to cook pizza, and have good customer relationship skills.

No, if...

No, you don't need experience in working in a pizza restaurant business, if you have some basic business and marketing skills. Or if you have enough investment capitol to hire experience people to run your restaurant business. And like all business you would like to become successful. It all starts with your will power too want to succeed. You need know how to go from dreamers to entrepreneurs mind.

So, learn as much as you can before starting a pizza business or find good people to run the restaurant for you.

  5. There is some great advice here about starting a pizza business.

    Even if you make the best pizza, it doesn't necessarily mean you will do well. Peter Reinhart speaks about this in his book, American Pie

    You need to look at the marketing side of the business as well. Unfortuanately that is where many pizzerias fail to do well.

    The best type of marketing is relationship marketing. You need to have a great relationship with your customers. If you do, they will come back again and again.

  6. The most profitable portion of the Pizza business is your liquor license. This allows you to make additional money, have sports parties, gathering of adults that will spend the money to make you a profit.

    Make sure you get help with the liquor license as it is very difficult to handle all the paper work alone. You really need experts.

  8. I'm just starting to venture into the pizza business. I don't have a lot of knowledge about it but I do know a bit of business planning and marketing. So I guess, I'll be doing this from scratch. I believe that great food and great customer service will make my business prosper.

    Yes, I'm focusing on the customer service since the customers are the life the business. And knowing this from a pizza business' perspective, there would be waiting lines. So I'll invest in a restaurant paging system complete with restaurant pagers for our customers. Cool, eh?

  9. Hi, It’s a good idea to come up with a pizza business as pizza is one of the most likeable and favorite food these days, I have one advice for you, you should plan some strategy for selling pizzas and getting more and more business and you can choose free online coupons get your planned firm registered with free Online Coupons Naples or in the city you are, because these days people love to search online and if they get a chance to save through discounted coupons then they can save and you can earn.

  10. For opening your first pizza restaurant, loans is totally essential for a starting-up business. When dealing with small business, it is recommended to go for credit card financing, since going for one is totally advantageous due to its adjustability and its long payment term, giving you more time to acquire enough income.
