Goodfella’s Pizza Helps Slice out New York

How Pizza Men Help-Goodfella’s Pizza New York

3 Time World Champion Pizza Men thank the Staten Island New York community for allowing them to be of Service for 22 Years

Goodfella’s Brick Oven Pizza of Staten New York is celebrating 22 year of service to the people of New York at their original location on Hylan Boulevard in Staten Island. Founded by former NYPD sergeant Marc Cosentino and his brother Scot with native Staten Islander Andrew Scudera an Eagle Scout and partner, the men have put the amazing amount of press, news articles, TV, magazine and radio interviews to good use with the unyielding support of loyal customers. “ Our philosophy of treating everyone like family and helping whenever possible has helped form an army of volunteers and moreover helped raise hundreds of thousands of dollars for people in need and community groups,business men” said Andrew Scudera. One of the more recent events was Hurricane Sandy and their response despite suffering tens of thousands of dollars in equipment and supply losses. “We were flooded and without power for over a week but we got it under control, began the clean with help from our friends and started using our wood fired brick oven to cook for our neighbors while we recovered ourselves”. What did that equate to? Facebook requests and calls for donations to get a tractor trailer set up in the parking lot with supplies, volunteers flooding in from around the country, NYPD and NYFD first responders, teachers, housewives, contractors, students, religious groups, veterans and family members amounting to hundreds strong including the former head of the NYC Detectives Union and a Marine Captain just back from Afghanistan running logistics. “Seeing the desperate state of my friends and customers who were literally left with the shirt on their backs was motivation to work for up to 18 hours a day for months coordinating and aligning efforts between the Mayors office, Red Cross, Churches, VFW, Bikers, Occupy Wall Street( changed to Occupy Sandy), NYPD, Tunnel to Towers, Gyon Rescue, The Marine Corp League and countless people who worked tirelessly behind the scenes despite personal hardships” said Marc Cosentino. “Us Foods dropped off a trailer of ingredients to get things rolling when supply lines were cut, locbusinessmenbrought food and supplies to donate, the International Association of Scientologists gave us a $30,000 dollar donation to help feed and house the out of town volunteers and provide supplies, the Pentecostal church run by a former New York City Transit Captain became another storage and distribution center along with setting up sleeping quarters for the ever growing group of out of state volunteers, housewives with their infants in car seats were preparing meals and going house to house in the cold and dark to feed the hungry. The Marine Corp League brought out a monster truck and set up a huge supply tent to receive and distribute food and supplies. The volunteers were working without complaint under very tough conditions gutting houses and running supplies day and night. Many times the overwhelming humanity of it all was hard to bear” added Scot. But they were no strangers to making it go right despite the horrendous situation. 911 was a big wake up call, the country was attacked and Goodfella’s went to work 24 hours a day the first weeks running food up to ground zero and supplying food daily to workers at the Staten Island dump going through the debris, despite a drastic cut in business and no financial support resulting in tremendous financial stress later on down the line for months to come. “The money didn’t matter when your friends and co-workers have been murdered and the only way you can help is cook. We started to see the return from our customers and friends that would stop by to thank us and just be part of the effort. It takes a lot of people to coordinate and deliver that amount of food besides the time involved to get to these locations” said Marc. Goodfella’s provided a place to “arrest people” and hold the customers hostage handcuffed to the chairs to raise $10,000 for the Jerry Lewis Muscular dystrophy foundation. They catered the Presidential Yacht in DC to help raise money for the 911 fund. Not only that but Goodfella’s has done fund raising for dine out for hunger, toy drives with United States Marines, hosted autistic children each week making pizza boxes for therapy, donated to bazaars, charity drives, local churches, schools, bowling teams, little league and even arranged to give away 1000 slices of pizza and 1000 cokes at the Staten Island Ferry as a thank you to the people of Staten Island-sadly after all the TV, radio and newspaper coverage announcing the free pizza the ferry crashed with catastrophic results. Goodfella’s gave all the food to rescue workers responding to the scene. The care and help they provide is evident in any one act but when you add up the week in and week out donations to local events, food prep for charities and kids over the last 22 years, the amount of help is staggering. “The message is thank you to all our customers who have been unsung heroes behind the scenes, none of this could happen without you and every little act ads up and helps someone.” Andrew said with a note of encouragement. Please share this be sure to stop by the original Goodfella’s on Hylan Boulevard when you are in town.

Super Pizza for Pizza lovers

A truly super pizza with flavors that leap from this beautiful creation!

Pizza

Super Pizza For Pizza Lovers

This pizza was prepared in Trento Italy by our friend Albert in a 140 model revolving brick oven at approximately 750 degrees. He is a true master of the art that takes so much pride in all he does.

First- you will need an easy Neapolitan dough for a base which is then generously covered with fresh buffalo mozzarella broken in pieces and a very light smattering of tomato sauce. Then (and this is key) after it is baked to perfection you slice fresh soppressata and gently fold it over your pizza in a delicate blanket.  You don’t want to cook good cold cuts, just slice them fresh! Next, comes the artichoke hearts and finally the Gaeta olives. The savory meat, delicate crust with hints of yeast and the tangy olives combine with rich cheese and artichoke to delight the pickiest of pallets viagra online.
The sauce can be substituted by a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil if you prefer but as with any delectable dish that you can only get out of it what you put into it, so use the best available ingredients, then bake to perfection in your New York Brick Oven. Love Life and Happy Eating!

Brew Master Pizza Master

Having recently visited the extremely well executed Radius Brew Pub in Emporia Kansas featuring wood fired brick oven pizza from a revolving brick oven that is part of a wonderful open kitchen design, I realize a new player/category is emerging -The Gourmet Pizza Brew Pub. To begin, select craft beers such as Watermelon Wheat and Milk Stout are being brewed for customers in one of the nation’s first completely visible and walk around electric micro-breweries as the Chess Masters Blues tunes set rhythm to the mood. A unique sampling of six delightful ales and stouts arrives at the table in a signature hand-made split level server( which takes up less room while making for a wonderful display) is brought to the table with each of its individual glasses glistening with cold condensation to start. Details, details, details, a pleasant Midwestern staff and a completely unexpected menu are a welcome surprise to see in this small town on the prairie but when the Scotch eggs with homemade Dijon mustard and butter washed Pretzel bread featuring a homemade cream cheese and Cheddar spread arrived, I was sold. Then the Mako Shark with adobe spiced French potatoes was placed in front of me I had visions of my home town- New York, this was a piece of paradise or an oasis on the Great Plains (pinch me). As if all this was not enough for this kid from Brooklyn, the next dish was a broccoli pancetta pizza delight cooked in a revolving wood burning brick oven built by the New York Brick Oven Company. I had to hold back the tears. Radius brew pub has raised the proverbial bar on pizza and set a new standard for brew pubs while homing in on a new food trendsetting idea. This long time restaurateur feels Gourmet Pizza Brew Pubs will be of the importance and demand attention on par with the fast casual trend for quick eating. It is fantastic to see young entrepreneurs bringing their best game and hitting it out of the park. Marc Cosentino

How To Promote Your Pizza Place

Goodfella’s Captain America Pizza Car

Watching my facebook friend Grant Cardone go on and on about getting known and attracting attention I thought I might as well share some very hard-won knowledge on the subject to help my friends just getting started. I’d like to first say that IT IS SO MUCH EASIER TODAY THAN IT HAS EVER BEEN TO GET ATTENTION FOR BUSINESS!!! What do I mean by this? The internet, cell phones, home printing, email, blogs, online ordering, electronic press releases, computers, youtube, facebook, Instagram, search engines and a host of other items that make it so easy to get out there that it may seem overwhelming or too easy.
No matter how incredible your product is, if nobody knows it exists, you will never sell one item and die broke a complete failure. What you need besides a great product is getting it known. I have some experience in this having generated hundreds of newspaper articles, TV news stories, hundreds upon hundreds of pages on google search, lead google stories, 100’s of thousands of hits on youtube videos, twenty years of NYC Mayors visiting my original store, having my pizza bet on the NY Giants by the Mayor of New York when They won the Superbowl, radio and I think you get the point. SO how did I do it? More importantly; how do you do it? If you do a portion of what I advise you here I guarantee you will succeed in getting your product known. With good management and a consistent product you should start expanding.

  1. list out all the people you know and every group, organization and social club you belong to. Note: Yes, work and a burning desire to succeed are a necessity so no crying!
    Believe it or not but the people most likely to promote you are the ones you already know so start contacting them and letting them know what you are doing and don’t be afraid to ask for help getting the word out because most-not all people are good. Email. call, visit, write letters, make post cards, put up signs and contact each and everyone of them. Invite them to your grand opening and tell them to bring their friends. Yes I said it and if you thought for one second “Oh my god how would I ever handle that many people” you need to rethink your promotional philosophy and heres why. A true promoter never stops and never, ever considers delivery, just getting the people in-period. I don’t care how you do it and you don’t care about handling them, that’s another part of the job called production or delivery. Your only concern when you wear the promotional hat is promoting. What is promoting? It’s making things known and well thought of. It’s getting the word out and creating interest.
  2. Signs announcing your product. Let’s take pizza since it is why we are here. You need to tell people you are coming and get your name on everyone’s tongue. Signs on your place, signs on your car, signs on your clothes, on your dog, kids. hats, cards
  3. Everywhere you go, shopping, barber, car wash, doctor, school. little league, diner, dog groomer you talk it up and introduce yourself and give out cards or better yet coupons for everyone.
  4. When you open you go and hand out samples to all these people-don’t worry about the cost because it will have a return on investment way over what any paid advertising def: paid offers of your product in various media. WORD OF MOUTH is always your best promotion and will always bring greater results than paid ads.
  5. video on your iPhone all of the above and dump it on your new youtube channel, facebook, instagram, twitter accounts your opening in the next step
  6. open twitter, youtube, facebook, instagram, linked in and every other social media account you can find. And continually put up photos and videos of your progress and promotion.

Pizza Expo

Why Go to Pizza Expo ?

For guys like us, it’s all about the experience, the sights, the sounds, the excitement, the food and most importantly the people. Where else do you get the chance to meet people from all over the world who share the same passion as you. In my years of attending Pizza Expo , I have made friends from every corner of earth involved in all aspects of the pizza industry.

From the top dogs running multi-million dollar franchises to people from small towns in areas, I have never heard of let alone could find on a map. I have even met people from my hometown and old neighborhood at the show. A chance to get away from the daily routine and stress with the ability to get an exterior view of your pizza and the concept is truly  valuable.

Input from different people and trendsetters,  making a variety of amazing pizza is fun and stimulating.  Seeing the latest developments in the industry (such as our Revolving Brick Ovens) is priceless because it can prevent you from making costly mistakes due to lack of information and being in the dark because your head is buried in your business.

Every year new ideas new concepts new ways to save money and most importantly new friends to make! That’s why Pizza Expo is Fantastic!

Look for part 2 and why should compete in pizza contests and the incredible $$$ return on investment. Marc Cosentino
