The Beauty of Breadsticks

When it comes to creating easy-to-make and highly profitable signature appetizers, breadsticks are a pizzeria owner’s dream-come-true. Breadsticks are a low-cost item with nearly infinite potential, whether they’re brushed with garlic butter and sprinkled with Parmesan cheese, stuffed with sun-dried tomatoes and pesto or transformed into a signature dessert with cinnamon, sugar and frosting.

Best of all, breadsticks offer the perfect upselling and bundling opportunity. The more options you offer on your menu, the more money you can make. In fact, promoting signature breadsticks can boost your average ticket sales by three dollars or more and turn your pizzeria into a dining destination!
