Saskatchewan and Manitoba but remained unknown east of Winnipeg In the mid-1990s the company made the decision to enter Canada’s 50 Best Managed Companies contest so that it could improve its business from within At about that same time it also began to re-explore in earnest the possibility of expanding nationally Today the brand has 345 restaurants spread out across every Canadian province but the process to get there wasn’t easy With this year’s next cohort of Best Managed companies soon to be announced Boston Pizza CEO Mark Pacinda recently spoke with the Financial Post to recount the Alberta-founded company’s eastbound journey and the bumps along the way Following is an edited transcript of their conversationQ: Thinking back to your first year as a Best Managed company what was the biggest challenge you had to overcome at that timeA: We were a private company at that time primarily western based Not many people east of Manitoba had heard of Boston Pizza We started in Edmonton in 1964 and we had a strong western presence so people in BC and Alberta and the Prairies knew about Boston Pizza but no one in Ontario (which is basically two-thirds of the country) knew about us Our big internal business challenge was how do we grow our brand nationally and we saw the Best Managed award as a national award with companies that had a large national presence so we were a bit worried they would wait until we achieved our goal but they seemed to like our progress at the timeQ: What process did you use to break out at the national levelA: Well it’s interesting That’s actually the reason I was hired I was the first employee hired outside of the western office The two owners of the company Jim Treliving and his partner George Melville had a great brand out west and wanted to grow it out east They took a shot at it in the early 90s just prior to the GST coming in and didn’t have a lot of success They opened three stores and ended up having to close the stores and regroup and thought: ‘The next time we do this we’re going to have to have a Toronto office; we can’t run the company from Vancouver’ So they went out into the search world and found me in 1997My job was to open up an office in Toronto find some franchisees hire some staff build some stores and start to grow the business That started slowly In 1998 and 1999 we had three or four stores in Ontario – a couple in Ottawa one in Oakville in Mississauga We started to gain some momentum We had good timing That was when all the retail big-box complexes were exploding in the burbs We had AMC and Famous Players theatres being built lots of shopping malls lots of expansion opportunities So we grew quite rapidly From 2000 to 2010 we build 175 stores and the bulk of them were in eastern Canada So we went from virtually no stores in Ontario to over 100 in a 10-year periodWe are really the only mid-scale player that’s in all 10 provinces Most of the people in our segment are regional Back in the day you had BP but then you had Earl’s and Joey’s and Moxie’s and White Spot (in BC) and Kelsey’s Montana’s and East Side Mario’s in OntarioQ: Yeah it’s a pretty saturated market; not just the mid-scale market but the pizza market How did you convince Ontarians Quebeckers and Maritimers they should skip the delivery and go out for pizza and have a beer with some friends while they’re at it (or maybe bring their families)A: We built it off the success we had out west We knew we had a proven concept,Nike Air Max 90; we just didn’t have it in this market When we actually came to Ontario we were right in the middle of renovating our building our prototype to make it a bit more modern a bit more upscale — something that would catch people’s eyes We knew we couldn’t enter Ontario with the kinds of signs we had in the mid-1990s So we did that We filled a space that I don’t think was occupied at that point in Ontario and people liked our brand; it was new and fresh and interesting We generated a lot of excitement and had a lot of people that wanted to join with us and the next thing you know we were just growing really rapidly It’s funny that when you’re in the middle of it — when it’s happening — you don’t think a lot about it You’ve just got momentum and you keep goingQ: What would you say was your biggest challenge in expanding nationallyA: It was the real estate Real estate much like the restaurant business is regional We struggled to get the developers to also believe in our concept Initially it was difficult to get sites because they would say ‘I don’t know a lot about your brand; don’t know if you’re going to work’ If you’re a developer right now and Starbucks comes along and says ‘we’d like to have Starbucks in your plaza’ you’re going to say ‘sure we’d love to have you’ because you recognize the brand and you know the power of the brand When we went in and said ‘We’d like to put a Boston Pizza in your plaza’ they would say ‘Why would I do that; I don’t know your brand I’ll put a Kelsey’s there because I know them’ So we had to spend a lot of time convincing them that this would work and that they would be happy they made the call Once we started having success and they started seeing the power of the brand then that broke loose and we actually had developers calling us But those first couple of years were toughQ: How would you say your marketing has adjusted since then to reflect the increasingly competitive landscape but also to respond to new digital and mobile platforms that have emergedA: I would say 10 years ago we probably spend about 2% of our marketing budget on digital Today we spend about 25% of our budget on it That’s a substantial amount of money So we’re in everything from Facebook and Twitter to online ordering and going to target-audience-specific websites to promote things like gluten-free pizza (that way we can directly target the people that would want that product)Q: What has been the biggest shift in the way you operate or conduct your business since the early 1990sA: When you go through the Best Managed process there’s a discipline that you have to have in your organization to go through the questionnaire What it allows you the opportunity to do is look at your organization and look at it in a way that allows you to get a sense of whether or not you’re achieving a goal that you’ve set for your organization It’s kind of an audit if you will on that plan and it allows you to say ‘we really knocked that out of the park but they’ve raised a few points that we haven’t focused on but probably should If we want to continue to be in this program we have to continue to reinforce our training programs our management programs work on our foundations and make sure it’s a the forefront of what we do’ So it gives you a general guideline on how to be a Best Managed companyQ: You mentioned you reinforced some of your training programs What did you do to achieve that endA: We made a huge investment so that today all our training materials are online because most of our staff are young people – 18 to 21-year-old servers – so our training materials needed to be accessed on an iPhone or an iPad or a laptop at home Our staff give us high marks for great programs but also great accessibility We would take our training materials and hold them up against anyone in the industry and would like to think that we were right up there
