What Does a Professional NFL 6’0’ Foot Wide Receiver & a 7,000-Pound Pizza Oven Have In Common?
They’re on an expansion team that is a spin-off from Paisano’s pizza called Spinfire.
The pizza business is a very attractive investment, even professional athletes are joining in.
According to Gallup, 91% of Americans eat pizza at least once a month.
When you think of what types of food people order in, pizza is at the top of the list. America is a convenience-oriented society, and delivery pizza is a well-established niche.

After being the face of Virginia-based Paisano’s Pizza, 28-year-old Garcon paired up with the pizzeria’s CEO Fouad Qreitem, to form the new concept, named SpinFire pizza.

Garcon was confident after seeing the consistency and quality he had experienced and tasted at Paisano’s Pizza.
Qreitem was confident in the future growth of the idea and he knew Garcon would be a good partner not only because of his notoriety, but also because of his absolute dedication and his interest in his future financial plans beyond his football career.
“He’s the most driven person I’ve ever met in my life, and I know people who run thousand-store chains,” Qreitem says. “He’s the kind of guy that just basically wants to know and learn everything he can, so for him, learning the pizza business was not hard.”
How driven are you to be in your own business? Could you see yourself owning a pizza place?
Opening a business that delivers food that is high in demand ensures that there is a market for what you have to sell.
There is a wide range of customer preferences when it comes to pizza, some like a thick or a thin crust, spicy or mild sauce or certain topping choices.
If you’re thinking about opening one pay attention to the needs of the market in your area and adjust your menu to fit them. For example, if deep dish pizzas are popular, you need to have that on your menu. The number of competing pizza restaurants in your area can play a big role in your success.
