An Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP) is a unique retirement benefit plan where employees become partial owners by receiving shares of the company’s stock. ESOPs are designed to provide employees with a vested interest in the company’s success, linking their financial well-being directly to the performance and profitability of the business. Over time, employees accumulate shares in the ESOP, creating a sense of ownership and motivation to contribute to the company’s growth. Employees who retire or leave the company receive a payout based on the value of the ESOP shares they have accrued.


  1. Employee Ownership: ESOPs create a sense of ownership and pride among employees, leading to increased motivation and dedication to the company’s success.
  2. Motivated Workforce: Employees have a direct financial stake in the company’s performance, fostering a motivated and engaged workforce striving for higher productivity and efficiency.
  3. Retention and Loyalty: ESOPs enhance employee loyalty and retention rates, as employees are more likely to stay with a company where they have a financial interest and can benefit from the company’s growth.
  4. Increased Productivity: Employees’ increased commitment often leads to improved productivity, innovation, and overall performance, positively impacting the company’s bottom line.
  5. Tax Benefits: ESOP contributions made by the company are tax-deductible, providing potential tax advantages that can be used to benefit both the company and its employees.
  6. Attracting Talent: Being an ESOP can make Venezia’s Pizzeria an attractive employer, helping to attract top talent who are interested in working for a company where they can directly share in its success.
  7. Retirement Benefits: Employees accumulate wealth over time as the value of their ESOP shares grows, providing them with a valuable retirement benefit upon leaving the company.

Here’s what some of our employees have to say, about working at Venezia’s:

Having worked at Venezia’s for numerous years, there are multiple aspects of the job and work environment that are exceptional. First, the friendships that I’ve obtained and minted throughout the course of my tenure have been amazing. To know that you are supported by the managers and fellow coworkers puts one greatly at ease, and makes working for this wonderful restaurant really feel like a family tradition.

Before working with Venezia’s, I worked at a house cleaning service for almost two years. It was a dark time working there. However, my saving grace was coming I to Venezia’s one day for lunch and seeing a hiring notice on the door. Immediately I went online and applied, and not a week later I was hired! It’s been well over a year working here, and not a day goes by that I’m not glad that I applied to Venezia’s. Working here can be crazy… however it reminds me of Sunday family dinner.

Well there’s a lot of good things about working here that I like. Team work for one; not feeling like a lone ranger is great. Also, people willing to pick up the slack if someone calls in, and the general banter, which makes it more enjoyable. I don’t mind the work, and I enjoy coming to work. My coworkers are cool people, and I appreciate the opportunities I’m given to improve, and make Venezia’s a better place.

I have been working in management for Venezia’s for about four and a half years. This company has shown me nothing but support in my work life, and personal life. This company is run by the most caring and loving family, and that makes all the difference to the employees working here. Along with my growth with this company, I was here when we expanded the East Mesa location, as well as built the North Phoenix location, so I have worked at two of the five locations that are here in Arizona. Within the two years of working for this company, I was rewarded with four promotions. I am telling you this because this is somewhere that will reward you for your hard work. The work you put in for this family and their company does not go unmentioned or unrecognized. Venezia’s has become like a family to me over the years, I have made many great friendships. Not only do the owners come and visit the stores, but they take the time to get to know their employees and their families. How many companies that you have ever worked have taken the time to get to know you and your families? Recently, I have stepped down from management and taken a step back to focus on my family and my career goals to become a nurse. I still work part time for the company, and not only were the owners understanding, but they were proud of me and how far I have come as a person in my own life outside of work. Let’s talk more about the restaurant itself. Working here I have found a new love for food. How awesome is it to work in a restaurant where the food never gets old and tastes amazing! The work environment is fast-paced, but fun and always up beat. There is always something to do and everyone you work with is either laughing, smiling, or cracking jokes with one another while working. Do not be afraid of a fast-paced working environment, that just means the food is delicious and people love the customer service! Who wouldn’t want to work for a company that provides both? It is truly a family-oriented environment when you walk into our restaurant. I have worked here long enough that our customers have become family as well. We take the time to get to know our customers so that they always feel welcomed back. Working for Venezia’s has been one of the best experiences in my life! This place has got it all… fantastic food, close family and friend relationships, and a fun environment!

I have worked at Venezia’s for about four years now starting as a counter. Here I am, four years later, a shift lead at the Gilbert location. It is my very first job right out of high school and I haven’t thought about looking for another job. This job has so many great aspects and awesome managers. When you get hired at Venezia’s, you’re automatically a member of the Venezia’s family, it’s got wonderful benefits and great hours. The best part is they work around school hours, which is a huge YES! This company is owned by a wonderful family that takes notice in your great work ethic! “There is no I in team, but there is an I in win” and that is what me and my coworkers do every night, we work hard together every day and win. We work as a team and that is what matters in a busy restaurant. Working at Venezia’s has taught me patience, loyalty and much more. When I come into work, I put a big smile on my face when I see all my regulars. You create such a wonderful relationship with so many customers and that is great to have in a workplace. I would not have it any other way, this company is like your family and the best part is the FOOD IS AMAZING!
