Opening General Session - Scott Gittrich, Founder and President of Toppers Pizza, Inc.
Scott Gittrich delved into the restaurant industry at age 15 and has never looked back. After dropping out of school to get serious about the pizza business, Scott quickly advanced through the ranks at a highly respected Dominos franchise from General Manager to Area Supervisor to Director of Operations, where he was responsible for 22 high volume restaurants. In 1991, Scott realized that he was ready for the next chapter in his life and ventured away from Dominos in a quest to develop his own unique pizza concept, unlike any other. This led to the birth of Toppers Pizza, a 75+-unit eclectic pizza delivery franchise brand, headquartered in Whitewater, Wisconsin. Scott is an operator. He realizes that the success of the Toppers brand hinges on the success of each Franchisee and each restaurant. Toppers prides themselves on not being a Wal-Mart of their industry that has lost brand identity and personality; Toppers' quirkiness and edginess has given the brand character and has led to their fanatical customer base. Scott has become an operational genius and is widely regarded as an expert in his field, which has helped him keep Toppers creative, fueled for growth and unique in their industry. He thrives on inspiring others to work for their dreams just as he did because he knows that values, hard work, passion and associating yourself with great people are the keys to reaching your aspirations.
