Pizza & Baking All Together

Pizza is huge. Enthusiastic consumption of the perennial favorite in all its varied forms continues to fuel the market, with pizza restaurant sales expected to grow to $44 billion by 2017 (a projected increase of almost 17%). As competition heats up, pizza makers vying for market share are relying on menu innovation, fresh seasonal offerings, new healthy options and tech-smart marketing and order-placing to set their stores apart. “Fast causal” establishments are also springing up, thanks to super-hot ovens that can cook pizza in a matter of minutes.

IBIE is bringing pizza to the 2013 Baking Expo™ thanks to a new partnership with PMQ Pizza Magazine, which includes the PMQ Pizza Village—a unique town-hall style pavilion on the show floor featuring pizza related exhibitors, competitions, demonstrations and more.
