22 May 2018

Pizza maker Johnny Di Francesco changed his business fortunes when he became the World Champion at the Campionato Mondiale Della Pizza in Italy in 2014.

Winning awards meant people were interested in what he was doing and helped take his restaurant 400 Gradi to another level.

But it wasn’t all smooth sailing.

Important points:
-Anyone can win a competition, but it means nothing if you can’t deliver it to the table
-Getting attention is great, but you have to be able to deal with negative comments.
