With 20 years of experience in the world of pizza, Chris Conyers brought his expertise to Surf Rider Pizza Company in 2018 as the brand’s Director of Operations. The New York native insists he belongs to a “secret society of pizza mentors” whose goal is to make pizza the top selling food of all time. To that end, he is excited to help pass the art of making excellent pizza on to the next generation, while creating great restaurants that not only make outstanding pies and other specialties, but also provide jobs and help the community grow.
At ANI and The Patio Group, Conyers enjoys being part of a diverse yet cohesive team that values ideas and imagination as springboards to success. With the support of its close-knit members, he leads the Surf Rider Pizza Company team in finding creative and fun ways to redefine the standard and set new heights to attain in exceeding customers’ expectations.
Conyers studied business management in college, and spent four years as a code breaker in the Navy. He began practicing martial arts at 12 years old, and that passion continues to this day. He includes gardening and “long pizza talks on the beach” as some of his favorite interests outside of work, and loves being part of, and making an impact on his community.
