The secret of pizza's popularity

But after the introduction of tomatoes into Europe, the Italians began to bake thin pastry cakes and cover them with tomatoes and cheese. Sopizza appeared. In the 17th century, the creators of these dishes stood out in a separate profile and received the name "pizzaiolo".

Main priorities in the development of the organization
The company has been successfully operating for over 30 years (in Russia - 15 years). And it is natural that only high-quality products are not enough for leadership in the field of catering. To expand a business, you need experienced visionary leaders and the right approaches to managing a company. It is known that "Papa John's" adheres to the following principles of restaurant chain management:
- Concentration on development prospects. This includes franchising - transferring the right to work under your trademark to other firms, constant work on the pricing policy and the list of dishes, drinks and snacks offered in restaurants, selecting suppliers with the most optimal purchase prices, calculating the effectiveness of funds invested in marketing moves (this allows you to determine what is the way to attract buyersis the most efficient). One of the leading areas is also work on the Internet, because it is quite effective in terms of sales and expanding the interested audience.
- Tracking competitors' strategies. This item is mandatory, otherwise the business will cease to be profitable due to the fact that the activities of rivals will be more efficient. A thorough analysis of their functioning allows you to find your own mistakes, determine ways to eliminate them and develop ways to improve the service. It is in order to be one step ahead that the organization conducts online customer surveys, attracts mystery shoppers, explores new trends in the field of catering.
- Attention to detail: Together they add up to the overall result. You can coordinate and adjust the work of the organization if you carefully analyze all the little things. In them lies the stable dynamics of the company's development.
- Care for the workforce. Many people work online for a long time (5-10 years…). Some of them climbed the career ladder due to learning and the desire to succeed, outcast performance, and the desire to improve the quality of their personal lives and their families. Feedback from employees about Papa John's in Moscow indicates that the management of restaurants respects employees, since, firstly, the level of dedication of the latter depends on the loy alty of managers to their wards, and secondly, each person is individual and with good approach, he will diligently fulfill his duties, thirdly, any employee isa potential manager, and the mission of the authorities is to see his inner resource, reveal it and provide opportunities for career growth. After all, the more qualified responsible personnel in the business, the more productive the work and the more successful the business. Therefore, the company pays for training courses, trips to European countries to learn English and other activities aimed at improving the skills of employees.
- Step by step achievement of the goal. Every senior manager understands that it is impossible to achieve success overnight. It is necessary to develop a marketing system and gradually implement it, while analyzing the effectiveness of each step, instantly correcting unsuccessful moves.
- Correct conflict resolution. This is one of the essential skills of a manager, because the interests of employees and partners often collide in work, and one must be able to resolve disputes in such a way as to maintain the terms of cooperation. This is possible only with objective approaches to the issues being resolved and a tactful attitude towards opponents.
- Make informed decisions. In a difficult situation, it is desirable to weigh everything and only then draw conclusions. This allows you to maintain the company's image, save valuable labor personnel, and prevent business development problems.
- Compliance with new trends. Today's world is rapidly developing, and customers are only interested in those companies that keep up with the times, and in their work use the latest industry achievements and technologies that are interesting to people. Therefore, a frequent occurrence in chain restaurants isdevelopment of promotions, various online games to receive bonuses for customers, for which they can then receive a prize - free pizza. Such thoughtful moves allow you to attract an audience with a relatively small investment in advertising.
- Open and honest business. If an organization seeks further prosperity, then this principle of work should be one of the main ones, because it is impossible to succeed by resolving issues behind the backs of your partners, hiding taxes, making illegal transactions.
