Come to business lecture by owner of Jersey Girl Pizza

All are invited to “From the Ground Up: The Recipe for Turning Around a Business” on Wednesday, Jan. 30 at 7 p.m. in Portland Center 155.

This is a special guest talk on the business strategies leveraged to turn a local, failing pizza joint into a thriving business. Walt Porterfield, owner of Jersey Girl Pizza, will discuss his dedication, experience, and innovative process during this turnaround. He will be sharing his strategies and personal recipe for success!

Walt Porterfield purchased a failing pizza restaurant in 2016 in Hillsboro, Oregon, where yearly sales averaged just $74,000. Two and a half years and many improvements later, yearly sales have increased 6.5 times the original amount and are currently averaging $485,000.

Admission is free. Jersey Girl Pizza will be served (supplies are limited, please arrive on time). Please RSVP here. Questions? Contact Allie Duncan at
