Round Table Pizza announced plans Thursday to open 10 restaurants in Mongolia.

Two manager trainees landed in California Wednesday, and will spend the next eight weeks in Manteca, learning the tricks of the Round Table trade.

The company says the soon-to-be managers got special visas fromthe U.S. Embassyin Mongolia to make the trip. They’ll complete the basic manager’s training course, according to Round Table’s Senior Director of International Operations Mike Buck.

“The menu will be very similar, except that we will also serve Mongolian barbeque beef pizza and pasta there, and we may test some at the training restaurant in Manteca for some lucky customers,” Buck said, in a news release.

The first Round Table in Mongolia is set to open in September.
