FranchiseWire.com: No one knows Pizza PatrÃ³n quite like Raquel Merino-Finley. Her career with the brand started in 1994 and through drive, determination and hard work, she has climbed every level of Pizza PatrÃ³n's ladder from pizza maker to store manager to area supervisor to franchisee.
Raquel started with Pizza PatrÃ³n as a pizza maker 12 years ago. Immediately recognizing her talents and rewarding her hard work, Merino-Finley was promoted to the front of house where she became an expert at caring for customers. In 1998, she became co-manager of a Pizza PatrÃ³n location and was quickly given her own store to manage in 1999 after demonstrating her leadership and management capabilities. Raquel then moved on to manage Pizza PatrÃ³n's highest-volume store for more than three years before joining the corporate team and opening her own stores.
