Can I express a thought?

I don't know the back story, but... I have to wonder about the logic of opening a business doing something you admit you know very little about.

Have you made pizzas before?

Seems to me if you don't really know what you're really doing, you might be setting yourself up for failure.

Once again thanks for the concern- but the question wasn't if I was going to fail, but one that was simply put in the first place-

opening a Franchisee pizzaera for the fist time and need help on three ovens that the company suggested using. Looking at price, quality, ease of cleaning and maintenance. Ovens are Lincoln Impinger, XLT and Edge.

IF you could help, it would be greatly appreciated.

Otherwise, thank you for your time reading this.

Ron,

You might want to register and post your questions on ovens at the PMQ Think Tank at http://thinktank.pmq.com/viewforum.php?f=6. The guy on that forum (which is frequented mainly by pizza operators) who knows about conveyor ovens, including the brands you mentioned, is George Mills. You might even send him a PM.

Lots of franchisees buy into franchise operations and they do very well.  All they need is good business sense which most have, before investing a ton of money into these ventures.  Knowing about the pizza business is not a prerequisite.

I think it is telling that whenever I look at the auction ads in the NY Times the #1 thing being sold is the equipment of pizza joints.  Today's paper is no exception. The ads sound like most of these places that fail have not been in business very long.  If I were of a mind to open a pizza place (because there are only 50,000 of them on Long Island) I would be looking to pick up equipment at these auctions.
