&pizza's Michael Lastoria on doing well by doing good
We're continuing with our series of mini episodes helping restaurants through the coronavirus pandemic. With input from operators, vendors, consultants, data analysts, and more, these mini episodes will facilitate incredibly important conversation on how we can collectively survive the coronavirus crisis.
Next up: Michael Lastoria is cofounder and CEO of &pizza, a fast-casual pizza concept based in Washington, D.C., that has made culture and community impact as critical to its success as the quality of its pies. Lastoria talks about why &pizza recommitted to its employees in the wake of the coronavirus outbreak, how it's managing to provide medical professionals with thousands of free pizzas, and why innovation even in this season of crisis will benefit brands in the long run.
