Wedding Season Takes the Cake

The LloydPans innovation team was at the 38th annual Pizza Expo in Las Vegas to steal a pizza your hearts, and this year did not disappoint. We baked up some mouthwatering conversations, tossed up ideas for your foodservice establishments and delivered quality service like no other.

All puns aside, here’s our three biggest leftovers from the show (OK, we couldn’t resist one more): 

  1. The Pizza Expo-specific trend reports. Just like you, we’re fans of pizza! It’s exciting to see the trends that emerge specifically out of one powerhouse show. Hormel Foods dropped its topping trends report from the show this week, and we can’t wait to taste citrus garnishes, fried pizza and the array of plant-based alternatives that are hitting the market. Pizza Expo literally spawned a topping revolution in just a few days, and we can’t wait to taste test future pies. Check out a future LloydPans blog where we take a deeper dive into trendy toppings.
  2. You. Conversations in our booth ranged from our stick-resistant proprietary finish (check out our in-person demonstration @lloydpans on Instagram) to our custom pan options. There’s nothing like a face-to-face chat about customer needs, and it’s our favorite part of Pizza Expo. Booth No. 2351 was surely hopping in March.
  3. Our Pans. No meal is complete without the entree! For us, that’s our pizza pan lineup. We displayed a wide variety of pizza pans, including our top three recent customer faves:

Bar Pizza Shovel
Our newest innovation, the Bar Pizza Shovel is used for busy establishments that want to start the pizza on the pan and finish it on the deck or hearth. For bar-style or tavern-style pizza, the Bar Pizza Shovel pan also improves the crispiness of the crust.

Detroit-Style Pizza Pan
Our Detroit-style pizza pan’s sleek body design and hard coat anodized exterior is built to Motor City specifications. We’ve made these pans metal utensil safe and durable enough to withstand the punishing conditions of a high-volume pizza operation. Most importantly, our high-performance release coating means no pre-seasoning is required.

Grandma-Style Pizza Pans
Our Grandma-style pizza pans come in a variety of sizes, each with a 1-inch depth and 76 degrees angled side. These features combined with a highly conductive aluminum construction imparts the perfect crust attributes: crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside. 

We had a blast with you at Pizza Expo, and we can’t wait for next year. Didn’t get a chance to stop by the booth? Contact our customer service team to begin the conversation.
