I’m super excited to speak with Thom Elliot co-founder of Pizza Pilgrims, who makes authentic Neapolitan pizzas in Central London and beyond. Pizza Pilgrims started life in 2011, after Thom and James drove a three-wheeled Piaggio Ape back from Italy on a 6 week ‘Pizza Pilgrimage’ of discovery to learn everything there is to know about pizza.
I love their latest venture, the Pizza Academy, which is designed to inspire young people to choose hospitality as a career and be a center of excellence for all things pizza.
Thom gives us a deep dive into their purpose, leadership philosophy, culture, why pizza and happiness and how they are very connected, their approach to managing and developing people, their philosophy around growth, what they are focusing on as a business right now, the future of hospitality and some many other slices of wisdom.
