Sorry, I didn't mean $150 for one person!  I meant like throw a party and ask 10 people to each chip in $15 each, or something like that.  Or do a marketing thing, all-you-can-eat for a price and set up somewhere to do it...

Excellent improvement Derrick.  I'll have to get one of these next season.

Thanks!  We're actually unlikely to be doing farmer's markets next year.  It was great practice, great exposure early on, but the bang for your buck wasn't worth it... we're likely going to target festivals and private events instead, and since I may be in the process of opening up a brick and mortar, one of my partners is likely going to take the lead of Za Pi while I step back and assist with strategy and minor operations.

I was in Chicago last weekend but saw you were done for the year.  Why not make the brick and morter a part of ZP?  Capitalize on your good name?

You have got it tuned pretty much perfectly I would say.

I would have to agree....big change, and it looks excellent!    Just like anything, it just takes time and effort, there is no magical secret.

AC,

I'd love to make a brick and mortar place with ZP, but I don't think we have a strong enough following to execute yet... perhaps in the future.  For now, I've got something else in the works that will be quite exciting... more news to come.

You're definitely right.  It goes to show though, that there's a lot of variable at play to attempt to control in getting an "ideal" pizza... Still much to learn, and much to work on...
