Former Pieology pizza maker Glenn Cybulski is also Stoner’s new chief culinary officer.
Stoner’s Pizza Joint has a new president and chief culinary officer, reports Nation’s Restaurant News. According to the article, Glenn Cybulski, a certified pizzaiolo who studied in Italy, comes to the franchise from the California-based restaurant Pieology, one of the first build-your-own-pizza concepts.
Charleston-based Stoner’s Pizza Joint was purchased and revamped by HospitalityX last year. With 11 current restaurants, the company plans to add 100 new locations by 2023 with focus on the southeast region of the U.S. and college campuses, where the cannabis-themed name traditionally plays well, according to the article. NRN reports that the chain is exploring CBD-infused sodas and chile oils as well.
“Glenn's broad experience in the kitchen and behind the scenes, as well as cooking with cannabis and CBD are invaluable to our future success,” Bergelt said in a statement to NRN. “As the general paradigm shifts across the U.S. around the acceptance of cannabis culture, we're excited to tap into Glenn's extensive expertise to propel our brand's footprint and impact across the country."
