Managing a pizza store requires not only an understanding of the products being sold and delivered, but it also requires the manager to oversee additional financial and employee-related tasks and orders of business. Hiring/appointing assistant managers, team leaders and shift leaders is another responsibility of a pizza store manager. Pizza store managers also handle the scheduling and hiring of employees, managing budgets, ordering the proper amount of inventory, reviewing inventory usage, profits and expenses. Pizza store managers also stay informed of market research, trends and newly-released foods and products that are available. The more involved the manager of a pizza store is when it comes to new foods and ingredients, the easier it is to outsell potential competitors.
PIzzeria managers communicate often with distributors and suppliers. Many times, managing a pizza store requires a full-time commitment and 50-70 hour work weeks depending on the hours of the shop itself and the popularity of the store altogether.
It is also the responsibility of the pizza store manager to maintain a positive workplace morale with employee incentives and promotions to keep the workers satisfied and working as safely and efficiently as possible. Working as a pizza shop manager does not require a degree, but industry experience and business leadership skills can help to obtain the position.
