Business Visit: Peel Wood Fired Pizza
--
Edwardsville CEO had the pleasure of meeting with Chef Owner Patrick Thirion and General Manager Cassie Smith at the Edwardsville location of Peel Wood Fired Pizza this morning!
--
Patrick shared the story of how he, along with Chef Owner Brandon Case, launched Peel almost 11 years ago. Fun fact: Patrick shares the same high school alma mater as four of our CEO students, Metro-East Lutheran High School! His culinary story that started at the age of 15 is a true entrepreneurial journey filled with hard work, determination and spirit.
--
Through his experiences, Patrick shared many of the life lessons he has learned. He stressed the importance of immersing yourself in the field in which you want to work. Find mentors, learn from the best in your industry and be willing and able to work every job from the ground up. Hard work and passion are a recipe for success!
--
We were lucky enough to sample two incredible menu items; the Thai pizza and margarita pizza! These, like all of Peel's menu items, are designed by Chefs Brandon and Patrick and made entirely from scratch. What an incredible team, business and restaurant to have in our community!
--
A huge thank you to both Patrick and Cassie for welcoming Edwardsville CEO this morning!
