KJ’s Pizza, owned and operated by Paul and Kathy Jechura in Grass Valley, Calif., recently earned Approved Detroit Style Pizza Maker designation. Detroit natives, the Jechuras grew up eating Detroit Style Pizza and wanted to bring the style to their California-based restaurant, which they recently converted from a Quizno’s franchise. World Champion Pizza Maker Shawn Randazzo trained the Jechuras over a five-day period in early February 2013.
“KJ’s Pizza recently had the honor to experience the Detroit Style Pizza Training Program, and we were impressed by Shawn Randazzo and his crew’s dedication and focus on proper training techniques,” said Paul Jechura. “Shawn’s ability to ‘rally the troops’ and develop team spirit with all of the new team members was unbelievable. He’s one of the best motivational speakers I have ever encountered.”
