As we detailed in a previous blog post, the pizza industry is one of the thriving sectors in foodservice. With the trials and tribulations of 2020, one of the bright spots has been pizza, both in takeout and delivery.[…]
Among many other priorities, colleges and universities have had to strategize on best practices for feeding on-campus students, faculty, and staff.
