Patty’s Pizza Team

James Sarantinos

JAMES SARANTINOS

Vice President

Hi. I’ve been with Patty’s Pizza since 1994. Over the years I’ve seen Patty’s grow from a small boutique supplier of pizza crust to a major competitive force within the industry of pizza and related products. Currently, I direct daily operations working closely with our production team to continually supply the hospitality industry with some of the best pizza products available in the market place today.

Favorite thing about my job:
I get to work with a group of positive people all day long!

Nickname: James, Jim, Pizza guy

Funniest moment at Patty’s Pizza:
Recalling Patty delivering her first dough sample for a potential Marriott account, the chef asked her if she had just made it, Pattys asked “how do you know” and the chef said because she was covered in flour. They both had a good laugh and it became our first Marriott wholesale account.

Goals for the years to come: Continual growth

BRIDGET BASKIN

Director of Sales and Culinary Innovation

What do I want to be when I grow up??? That is always the question, right? One day I realized that “I love food and everybody needs to eat” I will be a chef, and always have a job!

With that, the very next day I enrolled into culinary school, spent 12 years working in restaurants and 16 years ago, I met Patty and joined her team.

My job takes me to new places, introduces me to wonderful people and allows me to follow my passion of food, every single day.

How long have you worked at Patty’s?: 16 years

Favorite thing about my job:
I love working with people and educating them how to serve the best possible pizza

Nickname: I never had one til I started here. I now go by Patty.

Funniest moment at Patty’s Pizza:
It was both funny and scary. We were leaving a food show several years ago, carrying large containers down an escalator, when we saw there was a huge back up at the bottom and people were stuck. I thought for sure we would end up in a pile with our containers over the people at the bottom. Luckily, it cleared as soon as we got down. I think we screamed a bit too. Once it was over it was funny.

Goals for the years to come:
Meeting more people and showing them the best pizza available to the food service industry.

Office Manager

In Patty’s Pizza, we’re not only a business, we’re family!

I like dealing with all the intricate details and the end-to-end process. When I met Patty and James, I knew I would love to work with this team. Fast forward 7 years later and here I am, still learning and still excited for what the day will bring. Being Patty’s Pizza’s office manager, I am responsible for all office procedures while using my organizational skills to ensure smooth operations in a busy work environment. I am the voice behind the phone and the girl always at the office. I love working for such a unique company with a team that has worked together for a long time, sharing a common vision for excellence but has never grown too big to not know each client personally.

Favorite thing about my job:
That every day I get to talk to our customers and meet new ones.

Nickname: I don’t really have one, but everyone seems to call me Patty.

Funniest moment at Patty’s pizza:
We were at a food show and we just had a very nice banner made for the event. As the day went on, one of the prospective customers noticed a typo: the banner read ” Patty’s award WHINING pizza” instead of award winning. We all had a good laugh.
