Based in Northland but servicing food businesses across New Zealand, PHS is a consultancy service that was born in response to seeing the devastating impact that a nationwide lock down had on businesses within the hospitality sector.
Owner operator, Andrea Pijacun was working in a management role in food service and events at the time and could not help but feel for the many business owners who were struggling and tirelessly trying to keep their businesses alive. She wanted to do something to help these businesses in the industry that she loves so much.
After some very meticulous planning, she decided to leave her current position at the time and get to work helping her fellow hospitality professionals get back on their feet. As risky as that move was, given the dire situation with so many having lost their jobs because of the pandemic, it is a risk that she is proud to have taken with no regret. Sometimes we all just need a bit of help and that is the essence of what Piazzoni Hospitality Services is all about.

Your brand is more than just a logo and name. It is about elevating what it is that makes you unique. Your mission, vision, values – all of which show a potential customer or client why they should you come to you instead of a competitor.
Every idea should start with a plan to ensure that you are meeting a need or solving a problem that creates demand in the market. The only way to do this is to dedicate some time and resources into research and development in order to test the feasibility of your idea.
