As the founder and CEO of 1000 Degrees Neapolitan Pizzeria, Brian Petruzzi of New Jersey oversees an international pizza chain with more than a dozen locations. Alongside his professional pursuits, Brian Petruzzi supports the Atlantic City Rescue Mission.

There are many ways to help the Atlantic City Rescue Mission. In addition to monetary donations, donors can give first-aid products, baby care items, clothing, blankets, and food products. The Mission is also in constant need of personal care items, including toothpaste, soap, razors, shampoo, and antiperspirant.

Other ways to support the Atlantic City Rescue Mission include volunteering time in the organization’s kitchen or on its farm, which operates May through August. The Mission relies on volunteers to run Hopeful Grounds, a “pay-what-you-want” café that serves coffee and pastries. Throughout the year, the Mission also holds several fundraising events, including concerts and its annual Summer Gala.

Brian Petruzzi has served 1000 Degrees Neapolitan Pizzeria as CEO from the company’s headquarters in New Jersey since its founding in 2014. Beyond supervising the company’s operations, Brian Petruzzi helps guide new franchise owners in the business.

Following are a few of the benefits of opening a restaurant franchise.

Branding. When you purchase a well-established franchise, you gain instant access to a recognizable brand that will help in marketing and immediately attract customers to your location.

Training. Most franchises operate training programs that not only teach franchisees about their new businesses but also equip them with transferable business skills. Such programs also increase the franchise owners’ potential for achieving success.

Continued support. A successful franchise location benefits the franchise as a whole, so each location receives continued support and assessment in an effort to bolster the business.

Health Benefits of Playing Soccer

Since 2014, Brian Petruzzi has served as the founder and CEO of 1000 Degrees Neapolitan Pizzeria in Galloway, New Jersey, where he is involved in overseeing all aspects of the restaurant’s operations. In his time away from work, Brian Petruzzi enjoys coaching soccer.

Soccer is one of the most physically demanding sports in which one can participate. From youth leagues all the way to the professional level, the total use of the body that soccer demands translates into a number of health benefits for those who play. Here are a few ways that soccer can improve a player’s physical health.

Soccer involves running and then walking at various intervals for 90 minutes, often in quick succession. This back-and-forth interval workout greatly improves the aerobic ability of the heart to quickly get oxygen and glycogen to the muscles when it’s needed, allowing for shorter recovery periods between extreme exertions.

Those who play the sport regularly also tend to experience improved cardiovascular health. The heart rate is consistently elevated throughout a match due to the level of exertion taking place, which promotes better overall heart and vascular health by making the heart stronger, guarding against arterial blockages, and lowering blood pressure.

Atlantic City Rescue Mission Looking for Help Purchasing New Ovens

Holding a bachelor of arts in marketing and business administration from Richard Stockton University of New Jersey, Brian Petruzzi has served as the CEO and founder of 1000 Degrees Neapolitan Pizzeria in Galloway, New Jersey, for the past three years. Outside of his work as an entrepreneur and business owner, Brian Petruzzi supports the efforts of the Atlantic City Rescue Mission.

During the spring and summer months of 2017, the Atlantic City Rescue Mission called upon its supporters to help the organization with the purchase of new ovens and other updates to its kitchen facilities, something officials say they desperately need to keep up with the demand of providing meals to people in the area who are homeless and less fortunate. According to the director of development, Howard Hirsch, the mission helps provide food to more than 500 people each day.

The estimated cost of the new ovens and the renovation comes in at around half a million dollars, according to Hirsch. Only two of the mission’s eight ovens are currently operational, and even those don’t work when they are set below 400 degrees. The mission hopes it can bring in enough money over the year through fundraising activities to cover the cost, but Hirsch says any donation will be helpful.

Seeking a Scuba Mask

In his role as founder and CEO of Galloway, New Jersey-based 1000 Degrees Neapolitan Pizzeria, Brian Petruzzi maintains direct responsibility for managing the restaurant’s culinary and marketing operations. A fan of outdoor recreation, Brian Petruzzi enjoys scuba diving at various marine locations throughout New Jersey.

Perhaps the most important piece of equipment for a scuba diver is the mask. They come in various shapes and sizes and there are several factors that determine whether or not a certain mask is best for your scuba setup. Here are some ways you can test a mask to see if it’s right for you.

Most importantly, the seal on the mask should be watertight. Tilt your head so that you are looking straight up and put the mask on. It should fit evenly against the skin without the strap. Then add the regulator and reassess if gaps are present.

With the regulator in place, put your head in a normal, forward-looking posture and take a gentle nose breath. A good-fitting mask will form a seal against the face when this happens. If all these tests have gone positively and you still have access to the nose pocket–used to equalize the ears–then it’s the right mask.

Social Media Marketing Trends Shaping 2017

Over the past 20 years, Brian Petruzzi has successfully launched numerous New Jersey-based business ventures. As part of his entrepreneurial efforts in the Garden State, Brian Petruzzi keeps up with current trends in digital marketing and social media.

Live video continues to grow as a means of social media marketing. Data collected by Wyzowl shows that 43% of marketers plan to implement live video in their 2017 campaigns. Platforms such as Facebook Live and Periscope are growing in popularity, with Facebook even taking recent steps to integrate Snapchat-like features into its mobile apps.

Conversely, social media marketers are starting to sour on Twitter. A new phenomenon called “Twitter Fatigue” has emerged. The platform made its name as a way to put out small, concise statements and updates.

While novel at first, social media consumers have begun to gravitate toward platforms where one can see an entire day’s worth of activity at a glance. Instagram Stories is one such example of this trend. While experts aren’t necessarily predicting the death of Twitter in 2017, things aren’t looking so great either.
