The Pizza Industry Council aims to address issues specific to pizza operators. The group is modeled after the National Restaurant Association's Fast Casual Industry Council formed in 2009. The NRA’s industry councils address segment priorities through collaboration within the segment and with the NRA and other segments of the restaurant industry.

“We look forward to working with the NRA on key issues that impact pizza operators, such as implementation of the new menu labeling and health care regulations and how to address elevated food costs,” said PIzza Industry Council co-chair Marla Topliff, CEO, Rosati's Pizza, Chicago. “We will be working to produce resources and tools to help pizza operators increase profitability and productivity, as well as raise awareness of the opportunities and challenges that are unique to our industry segment.”

The goal of the Pizza Industry Council is to discuss common concerns and advise the NRA on how the overall industry’s priority issues would impact pizza restaurants. One of the group's first activities was a White House meeting last week with members of the NRA staff. Participatnts discussed the need for flexibility in menu labeling regulations.

The group also will provide networking and educational opportunities and give input on research and NRA member benefit program development.
