PizzaAlert Fra Noi reader Walter Santi unearthed some pretty remarkable statistics on the internet that portray pizza making as a powerhouse industry that’s on the rise. According to PMQ Pizza Magazine’s 2013 State of the Industry Report, the U.S. pizza industry rang up a staggering $36 billion in sales for the year ending 2012, with more than 60 percent of pizzeria operators reporting increasing sales over the previous year. The total pizzeria store count for September 2012 was an equally mind-boggling 71,856 nationwide, with nearly 40 percent of the stores owned and operated independently of national and regional chains. The overall annual growth rate was 1.6 percent.
