This Week in Pizza — March 2


Being successful and making great food doesn’t necessarily make your shop newsworthy. Most reporters look for a human-interest angle—a heartwarming or inspiring story about a person who has overcome adversity. Maybe that person is you or your pizza maker or a waiter. Maybe it’s an employee with special needs or a cancer survivor starting a new chapter in life. Find that story in your pizzeria, relate it in a brief letter or press release and email it to local lifestyle reporters and editors (preferably with a photo of the individual). End with a friendly invitation (no strings attached) to lunch or dinner—and a chance to meet the employee—at your pizzeria!
