  • 2015 Vision Casting: Prime Pizza by Cristen Decarolis Dallas

    in Business

    Cristen co-founded Pizzeria Prima Strada with her husband Geoffrey Dallas. Today she oversees the growth strategy, finance, operations, marketing, and brand development for the company. She brings an extensive experience in facilities, operations and real estate management to the team she runs right now. 
    Cristen shares an important tip: 
    On marketing your product: “The other part was to hit all the demographics that we could. Once again, I think pizza has a lot of universal appeal so we look at not just print advertising which we’ve actually dialled back a little bit this year, but a whole kind of program: we do a lot with instagram, we do a lot with facebook, we do a lot with twitter, we do a great blog and website, and monthly newsletters with people that subscribe. So we spent a lot of time and energy making sure that we’re covering a wide range.”
