A Must-Read Article
I’m writing to you from Italy. I’m a big
fan of PMQ Pizza Magazine, and I try
to grab a copy every time I come to the
United States. I had the chance to read
your latest issue, and I really appreciated the article “Rolling in the Dough”
(October 2013) by Tom Lehmann. I
think that every person involved in pizza equipment
sales should read it to better understand the real needs of their clients. I used to
sell bakery and pizza equipment, and an article like that would surely have helped
to improve my sales at the time. Thank you again for a great job!
Thank you for the kind words, Paola. And just a friendly reminder: You don’t have to
visit the United States to read our magazine. Check out our digital edition at PMQ.
com/digital each month—you’ll even find bonus content in every issue!
Living the Dream
I own a pizzeria and draft house in Pittsburgh, and I’ve been in the pizza business
for 17 years. I have been reading and using PMQ for as long as I can remember.
I used to print out all of the Think Tank threads and keep them as a resource. I
have successfully built a pizza and craft beer program that has become a destination spot in Pittsburgh’s Little Italy district. I moved into an area that already had
many established Italian pizza shops, and I am thriving. I just wanted to say thank
you for publishing such an influential magazine. I am living my dream, and it all
started for me as a young kid reading PMQ. Thanks again!
Caliente Pizza & Drafthouse
It’s gratifying to know that PMQ Pizza Magazine and the Think Tank have helped
readers like yourself for so many years, Nick. And we’re also really happy to hear that
your business is thriving. We wish you continued success for many years to come!
