Here’s what caught my attention from my chat with Arrivederci Pizzeria’s David Silvestri:

  1. I love the fact that David looks out for trends and then acts on the ones he thinks will have a significant impact on his business. Eg. The Vegan Menu is a great example of this. A simple way to keep your finger on the pulse is to subscribe to Google Trends. A more expensive way is to take an overseas trip once a year and see what’s happening in your industry on the other side of the world.
  2. I love the fact that David has spend significant time in all parts of his business. Like he said, this then enables him to show great empathy and understanding when chatting with his staff.
  3. And I love how David is 100% focussed on offering a personalised experience for each and every one of his guests. Maybe that’s why 90% of his business is repeat business?!
