LloydPans will be at Booth No. 2351 in Las Vegas for the 39th International Pizza Expo, the world’s largest gathering of pizza professionals. As in years past, we’ll be displaying the best line of pizza pans, pizza tools and foodservice equipment in the industry. But, there are a few new, exciting reasons to stop by and chat with the LloydPans team.
1. The LloydPans Store is open for business
Pizza Expo attendees will be able to buy pans online at the show for the very first time. We’ll offer a pared down store/kiosk where you can research, purchase and then have items conveniently shipped to your business.
2. Steam Release Serving pan on display
Customers will appreciate the crisp, dry crust pizza that the Steam Release Serving Tray offers. Eliminate soggy crusts with this innovative new product!
3. LloydPans partners compete!
From Vittoria Trupiano competing with our Roman-style pan to Jo Tranchitia in the Italian Sandwich Competition, there’s nothing like real-time action to showcase the versatility of LloydPans. Good luck to all of our partners who are putting their recipes to the test.
4. Peter Reinhart in the house
Peter is leading a seminar at Pizza Expo "Tinkering With Your Dough" on Wednesday March 29 from 9:30 to 11 a.m., after which he will be in our booth from noon to 1 p.m., signing "Author of "Perfect Pan Pizza," and "Pizza Quest: My Never-Ending Search for the Perfect Pizza.” Peter will be recording new episodes for his podcast Pizza Quest, so you never know — you may be featured!
