52 • FOODSERVICE EQUIPMENT & SUPPLIES • SEPTEMBER 2015 THE PIE'S THE STAR AT PERSONA WOOD FIRED PIZZERIA L ots of people say they love pizza. Most of them don't — at least not like Glenn Cybulski loves pizza. Cybulski has given over a big chunk of his life to the dish. As a certifed pizzaiolo who trained in Italy, he'll talk with enthusiasm about the best four for making dough or about kneading techniques that support proofng's chemical reactions. He knows what bricks make the best pizza ovens and how oven masters should rotate a pie while it's cooking at 800 degrees F. He believes that a good pizza isn't loaded with a half dozen average toppings, but two or three great ones. This is the passion he brings to his emerging chain, Persona Wood Fired Pizzeria. Persona began back in 2012, when Cybulski met cofounder Joseph Baumel at a trade show and the two discussed open- ing a fast-casual pizzeria. According to Cybulski, the decision was "a no-brainer," especially in light of fast-casual's continued march across the foodservice landscape. The chain's leaders believe their passion for pizza and commitment to high-quality ingredients will make this fast-casual pizza concept rise above its competitors. By Toby Weber, Contributing Editor
