1 quart sweet barbecue sauce
3/4 cup olive oil
36, 6-inch prepared baked cheese pizza crusts
2 1/4 cups sweet onion, chopped
2 1/4 cups green bell pepper, seeded and chopped
3 lbs. mozzarella cheese, shredded
Cornmeal as needed
2 cups Parmesan cheese, grated


1. Toss shredded turkey with barbecue sauce. Cover, refrigerate and hold for service.

2. For each individual pizza crust, brush 1 teaspoon olive oil atop crust. Cover with 2 ounces turkey mixture. Top with 1 teaspoon each chopped onion and pepper. Sprinkle with 1-ounce Mozzarella.

3. Bake in a preheated 450-degree F oven for 6-8 minutes on hot cornmeal-dusted stone/pan. Cook until cheese melts and crust is crisp and golden. Remove from oven and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.

We wanted to add sushi, but that’s not really my expertise. So we found a great local company that offered to put three sushi chefs on-site every day. They supply the ingredients, and if we meet the minimum revenue each week, than we receive a percentage of sales. We have been exceeding the weekly minimum sales, which we track in our POS, in two days.

Following an initial test at the end of May, Starbucks announced that more than 500 of its stores will be pouring nitro coffee by the end of summer. Capitalizing on the cold-brew coffee trend—which reached $7.9 million in sales in 2015 on 115% growth from the previous year, according to researcher Mintel—select U.S. cafes will give up the counter space to serve the creamy, nitrogen-infused java made from the cold-brew base. But how did nitro become the hottest new thing in coffee?

My favorite event—because I’m kind of dorky—is our “May the fourth be with you” (aka “Star Wars”) day on May 4. The whole dining team dresses up, and we offer things like Chewbaklava, Boba Fettuccine and BB-8 Buckeyes. We had a guest cry because they got to take a picture with Chewy.
