A historic day!
This is Bauyrzhan Sadykov. Bau was born is Kazakhstan, but for the last 13 years, he’s been living in China. He came to Beijing to study at a university. He couldn’t understand a word in Chinese back then. For the last two years, Bau has been working with Dodo—managing Dodo Pizza in Yantai and Hangzhou. Now he is responsible for the development of our entire business in China. He is holding a preliminary lease deal for our new pizza shop in Hangzhou. We’ve just come to terms with the landlord and left a deposit to secure the deal. We’re launching our corporate (company-owned) pizzeria in China. It will be a pilot concept with no cashiers. All of the orders will go through our app on WeChat. Why are we doing this? I’ll tell you about it in another post. Stay tuned.
