Featured Alumnus: Brad Niemeier

In 2014, less than two years after earning his degree in from HHS’ School of Hospitality and Tourism Management, Brad Niemeier launched his own pizzeria, Azzip Pizza, in his hometown of Evansville, Indiana.

His concept: custom pies with unusual and fresh, healthy toppings — like locally raised chicken and baby spinach — served in under 5 minutes. Niemeier (HTM ’12) also creates his own pizza sauces.
He opened a second location in nearby Newburgh, Indiana, and this year he’s opening two more stores, including one near the University of Illinois. And he isn’t stopping there. Niemeier expects to have 10 locations by the end of 2016.
