Meet Danielle & Dustin Sergenian of Chicago Pizza Party in Lakeview

Today we’d like to introduce you to Danielle & Dustin Sergenian.

Thanks for sharing your story with us Danielle & Dustin. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
Chicago is arguably the pizza capital of the world, yet was without a major pizza festival, so in 2016, Chicago Pizza Party decided to change that! The first Chicago Pizza Party was held on February 11, 2017 and saw over 2,000 people! This year we have extended the event to include 2 sessions and anticipate 4,000 pizza lovers to attend! The event features pizza from 20 of the top pizza restaurants competing for the title of “Best Pie in Chi”, a rooftop dessert lounge, bars, local beer, themed games, photo booths, prizes, music from some of Chicago’s favorite DJs and more!

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
We learn something from each event and apply that to the following year’s experience so that the event continues to be cooler and cooler each year!

We’d love to hear more about your business.
My husband has traveled and lived all over the world working in the food and beverage industry for the past 20 years and I have done events for over 15 in Chicago, Arizona, Dallas, California, Las Vegas and New York. But Chicago Pizza Party is our favorite event as literally houses all of our favorite things, all in one place: all-you-can-eat pizza, delicious drinks, killer music and tons of fun!

What were you like growing up?
My husband and I are natural born planners and foodies, so food festivals is a natural progression of those traits!
