[Alumni] TV Review on CEO of Go Pizza (Jaewon Lim, ME, Class of '15)2020-09-19Hit:1435

'Sixth Sense' A Personal pizza brand 'Go Pizza' CEO is a fake 10 billion worth CEO?... "A total of 86 stores Worldwide."

Lim Jaewon, CEO of a personal pizza brand ‘Go Pizza’, appeared in Sixth Sense.

TvN's ‘Sixth Sense’ broadcast on the 10th featured guest Hwang Kwang-hee, including Yoo Jae-seok, Oh Na-ra, Jeon So-min, Jessie, and Mi-joo, who started to find one fake place out of three under the theme of "10 billion won Self-made CEO."

CEO Lim Jaewon, who invented the personal oven pizza brand ‘Go Pizza’, appeared as one of the three "CEOs worth 10 billion won."

Lim Jaewon, who started Go Pizza after working for an advertising company and a startup company, said, "I started this business thinking that pizza should be as fast, small and cheap as a hamburger," and added, "There is a store in Daechi-dong. As that store went well, the company grew rapidly."

Go Pizza currently has 86 stores, eight of which are located overseas.

Regarding the company's sales, CEO Lim Jae-won said, "We achieved 1.3 billion won in 2018, 4.5 billion won in 2019 and 10 billion won this year."

The five "Sixth Sense" members and Hwang Kwang-hee looked around the company and doubted whether it was a fake. Surprised by the discovery of a pizza oven inside the office, they said “If this company is fake, this would be fake too.” The members said it was suspicious, pointing to such clean water purifier management cards and factitious awards.

Yoo Jae-seok, on the other hand, said, "I don't know how much the production cost is, but decorating two floors?" He speculated that the company is real, not a fake intentionally created by the production team since the scale was large.

Meanwhile, ‘Go Pizza’ CEO Lim Jaewon, who appeared in "Sixth Sense”, graduated from a university in Singapore and received a master's degree in Management Engineering at KAIST.

He started developing pizza with the goal of "Let's eat it as cheap, fast and easy as a hamburger," and patented an automated oven that bakes five individual pizzas in two to three minutes.
