Story of Chocolate Pizza Company, from a local name to a national brand
At 21, he became from a fan, The Creator!
Transformation of a local business, Chocolate Pizza Company from a local name to a national brand by Ryan Novak
Gourmet chocolate blended with homemade toffee, poured into pizza pans and topped with nuts or candy and white chocolate drizzle, the thought of it may make your taste buds tickle but a teenager in New York saw huge business potential in there. That’s what it is about business, making every idea find its earning potential. In his loose pants at 15, Ryan Novak knew well that the idea of chocolate pizzas had sure been capitalised by Bonnie Hanyak’s Chocolate Pizza company, but playing in his mind was something grand!
Sure enough, this life is too small to not Dream Big eh!
No sooner, after serving his teen years washing dishes and mopping floors at the hometown chocolate shop, Ryan took over the Chocolate Pizza Company at the mere age of 21. Still a senior at Syracuse University, Ryan walked confident, ecstatic with the idea that it was time to get his long dreamt plans into action!
From being a fan, he emerged a creator, transforming the Chocolate Pizza Company from a local name to a national brand in a matter of few years! Alongside, he finished his bachelor’s degree at Syracuse University where he majored in Entrepreneurship and Emerging Enterprises and played football as a place kicker. He was added to the Whitman School of Management’s Wall of Fame and invited numerous times as a keynote speaker for SU’s Veterans Boot Camp. In 2012, he was named to the “40 Under Forty” list as one of the Syracuse area’s top young professionals and in 2014 Entrepreneur magazine published his article titled, “Because Life Isn’t Easy”.
“Our chocolate is exceptional, our creativity limitless but it is our people – the Chocolate Pizza team – that makes the magic happen. While the business today looks nothing like the little chocolate shop I acquired in 2010, Chocolate Pizza Company is just getting started.”, says the innovator.
Afterall, business is all about creating, enjoying the fame and creating more. And THIS never ends. And THAT’S the real fun!
