Fire Within has announced the launch of Wood Fired University, a comprehensive multi-day workshop that teaches students the culinary, business and logistical skills required to run a successful mobile wood-fired catering business. Fire Within is a leading manufacturer of mobile wood-fired ovens.

Fire Within, a leading manufacturer of mobile wood-fired pizza ovens, has announced the launch of Wood Fired University, a one-of-a-kind workshop that trains students in the culinary, business and logistical aspects of owning a mobile catering operation. While Wood Fired University is popular with owners and prospective owners of mobile ovens, the workshops are open to anyone interested in “foodie” entrepreneurship.

“Five times a year Wood Fired University offers three-plus-day workshops that do more than just show students how to use the ovens,” said Fire Within owner Ajith Dharma. “Graduates leave the workshops knowing how to implement a business plan, start their own catering companies, and, in the process, become financially independent. Ultimately, Fire Within is offering a business model, a lifestyle, a dream and not just a mobile pizza oven.”

On the business and logistics side, Wood Fired University coursework includes Business 101, Health Department Licensing, Management, Marketing and Branding, Equipment Selection, How to Write a Business Plan, and Catering Logistics.

In the culinary area, students learn fire management and oven use, dough management and pizza preparation, as well as how to make a range of foods in a wood-fired oven, including
appetizers, breakfast sandwiches, poultry, meat and bread.

Wood Fired University instructors boast many years in the food industry as successful chefs, restaurateurs, caterers and business experts. Wood Fired University’s next workshop is scheduled for October 23-26, 2015 in Broomfield, Colorado. For more information, please go to or call 888-240-9758.
