How a Former Professor Grappled With Depression, Found Clarity in the Mountains, and Launched a Thriving Hiking Apparel Company

Timpanogos Hiking Co. Launches First Retail Store in Provo, Utah

Timpanogos Hiking Co. will officially launch its first brick-and-mortar store in Downtown Provo this Thursday, May 25, 2023, just a short drive from its namesake, Mount Timpanogos. Provo Mayor Michelle Kaufusi is expected to attend the ribbon cutting at 3 p.m.

A Utah native, Timpanogos Hiking Co. founder and owner Joseph Vogel started the business as a side project while still living in Massachusetts, where he was a professor. "It was a way for me to kind of reconnect with home," Vogel explains. "I'd been away for 15 years, first for grad school in Rochester, New York, then for my career."

Around the time of the pandemic, Vogel was grappling with serious depression following what he describes as a series of "tough, life-changing blows."

He began returning to Utah more often in part to help with his mother, who suffered a major brain injury in 2020. During those trips, he also began hiking in the canyons and mountains he grew up in. "It was nice," he says. "I liked the movement. I liked just sweating and not looking at my phone and being surrounded by all that beauty."

Prior to starting the business, Vogel had reached the pinnacle of his profession in higher education, earning tenure as a professor of American literature and film, and publishing bestselling books on pop icons Michael Jackson and Prince. He also participated in two documentaries by legendary filmmaker Spike Lee. But "success," Vogel says, "isn't everything." 

The idea for Timpanogos Hiking Co. came one sleepless night in Massachusetts. "I saw the name and logo in my mind, and the tagline: escape the noise." 

A few months later, he launched an online store on the Shopify platform. "It was exciting," Vogel says. "I had no idea what I was doing, but it was fun and challenging and I could see the potential." Rather than focusing on hiking gear, Vogel decided to highlight unique hiking-inspired designs — specifically for T-shirts and hoodies. "It was great," Vogel says, "because you could tell very quickly what was working and what wasn't." In the beginning, Vogel used print-on-demand services to keep inventory costs low and offer as many designs as possible. 

In just over six months, the business made over six figures in revenue. 

In February 2023, he decided to take a leap and sign the lease for Timpanogos's first physical store. The buildout and inventory required dipping into his retirement account. For the past few months, he says, he has been "bouncing back and forth" between Massachusetts and Utah while his kids finish the school year, but he has no regrets. 

"For me, it's about something bigger. Something personal, obviously, but something others can relate to." Vogel says he has taken inspiration from other purpose-driven businesses, including fellow outdoor apparel brand Cotopaxi. "Obviously, you want your business to be successful. But you also want to 'do good,' as Cotopaxi puts it, and I thought one thing we could do in addition to making cool designs is bring awareness to mental health and how good hiking can be for people struggling with mental health." 

Timpanogos Hiking Co. has customers in all 50 states and has quickly become one of the hottest outdoor apparel brands in the Mountain West.

In Its 65th Year, America's Hometown Pizza Place Opens First Restaurant with Fully Updated Look That Gives Nod to Nostalgia

New Pizza Inn Prototype is unveiled.

Pizza Inn, America's Hometown Pizza Buffet, has announced the debut of its new prototype buffet-style restaurant with the brand's return to the Asheboro, North Carolina, market. Elements of the new design combine modern simplicity and bold colors with warm woods and vintage themes. Components created to engage, entertain, educate, and inspire customers include:

  • A movie theater marquee above the buffet, which is considered "the star of the Pizza Inn show." It contains customizable channel lettering that will allow each restaurant to showcase special features.
  • Specially made booth seats emblazoned with artwork from Pizza Inn's proprietary flour bag from 1977. The custom vinyl is intended to remind customers that the chain has always made their pizza dough fresh, in-house, and intends to continue providing that value proposition in the future.
  • A permanent photo-op wall with pizza-inspired angel wings that proclaims, 'Say Cheese.' Customers can memorialize each visit with a photo in front of the whimsical, themed backdrop and post it on their social media platforms.
  • Nearly three-foot lighted marquee letters installed in the ceiling that spell, 'Slice Slice,' and are perpendicular to a soffit emblazoned with 'Baby,' paying homage to the first-ever hip hop single to top the Billboard charts, in 1990.
  • Cut-out timeline markers over each booth that visually depict the evolution of the brand's mascot, a happy and hard-working pizza maker, named JoJo. Debuting in 1967, progression of the brand's symbol represents its long heritage and success in remaining relevant through six and a half decades.
  • Design for the exterior of the repurposed building focuses on eye-catching colors and easily identifiable branding. The newly developed signage features modern LED lights that have the appearance of vintage neon.

Retail design firm, Chute Gerdeman, and advertising firm, BooneOakley, were hired to help redesign the restaurant and revamp the brand. Their mission was to create a fresh, clean, relevant aesthetic while focusing on the neighborly, reliable, and proud reputation of the iconic brand.

CEO of Pizza Inn's parent company, RAVE Restaurant Group (NASDAQ: RAVE), Brandon Solano, said, "This was truly a collaboration of experience and creativity. It was a tall order to reignite the Pizza Inn brand and still pay homage to our roots and welcoming hometown environment. I think, together, these two agency partners did a phenomenal job. I'm excited to introduce this new look in Asheboro and look forward to having it in all of our restaurants, chainwide."

Claire Oakley, Director of Client Services for BooneOakley addressed her agency's approach saying, "Pizza Inn is not a flash in the pan concept. It's a resilient, nostalgic brand with significant historical roots. We took the very best parts of what made it a truly unique brand and applied modern learnings and design to ensure it could be relevant for newer generations."

Wendy Johnson, EVP and COO at Chute Gerdeman added, "We think the playful energy of the new design will grab the attention of guests old and new. It's inviting, contemporary, and still committed to keeping the buffet the 'hero' of the restaurant."

The new Pizza Inn restaurant located at 1216 E. Dixie Drive, in Asheboro, opened its doors to the public in a festive grand opening ceremony on Tuesday, May 23, according to Owner/Operators, Dion and Dorrance Firooznia.

"We are bringing the buffet back and making it better than ever with our new logo, store design and image," says Dion Firooznia. "With this reopening, we aim to take those fond childhood memories the community had about Pizza Inn and make them even better. Asheboro has been waiting for our return and we look forward to giving them an experience that will make them want to come back for more."

Pizza Inn built a reputation for making fresh pizza dough, in-house, every day, using house-shredded 100% whole milk mozzarella cheese, hand-cutting fresh vegetables and their house-made signature sauce. The menu also includes more than a dozen signature pizzas, traditional pastas and strombolis, as well as unique desserts, called Pizzerts®. One of the biggest draws, however, is a robust, all-you-can-eat, fresh salad bar, with an abundance of house-cut ingredients, a multitude of popular toppings, and six different dressings, including house-made ranch.

The Asheboro Pizza Inn is the fifth Pizza Inn to open this year and marks the seventeenth in the State of North Carolina. It is the second to open under Firooznia's six-unit franchising agreement. The restaurant is open from 11:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. every day. For more information, visit https://www.pizzainn.com.
