When Chris and Denise Noyes bought Little Italian Pizza, a 2-unit pizzeria in suburban, Southwest Chicago, they faced the the management decision crucial to any entrepreneur--determining their primary management goal. They could manage for growth, they could manage for profit, they could manage for cash, or they could achieve a compromise among the three. "For us," Chris stated, "it wasn't a question. We were managing for growth."

And grow they did. Financing themselves to the hilt, obtaining leasing to conserve working capital while upgrading equipment, they remodeled, redecorated and opened an additional store, in just over four years.

The 20 year-old revolving tray, solid shelf oven in their main store, was providing great service, and--more important to Chris--the exact type of bake for which he was looking. So when they opened their new store, he knew he wanted another revolving tray design. "The Fish P-60 we purchased went in easily, and gave us a great bake, right from the start," Chris said. "You can't beat a revolving tray design for baking consistency, and the Fish oven gave us everything we wanted."

As the improvements, upgrades and spreading "word-of-mouth" endorsements of Little Italian pizza caught on, though, Chris and Denise were faced with a new challenge: too little baking capacity at their main store. "It got to the point," Denise said, "that we were telling call-in customers they would have to wait over an hour, just to pick a pizza up.""The old oven was still running fine," Chris stated, "but we had to get more capacity."

As in any shop or plant, the replacement of any major piece of equipment demands either a back-up system, or a very quick turn-around, to keep down-time to a minimum. We knew from our previous experience approximately how long it would take to assemble a new oven, but had no idea how long the take-down of the old main oven would require.
