If pizza is your passion and you have what it takes to own a restaurant, Slices Pizza Joint is for you! Placing our restaurants in locations with a high volume of foot traffic and as using the freshest and highest quality ingredients every day for our pizzas has made our restaurants highly profitable.
Our concept relies on the fast, casual dining-in or take-out service our customers have come to appreciate. Incorporating high quality ingredients, providing a variety of pizza options (both standard and unique) that are baked from scratch in a stone oven and offering favorable prices and extremely fast service gives us our competitive edge.
Served either by the slice or whole pie, our pizza menu has a large variety of unique ingredient combinations as well as standard topping choices. The casual, low-key decor and theme makes for the perfect college hang out spot that appeals to not only students, but blue collar workers, young families, business lunches — everyone!
The real power and energy of a Slices Pizza Joint comes from the youthful and highly motivated staff. Our team provides attentive and courteous service to all of our customers, while preparing our pizzas from scratch.
All of these ingredients form a Slices Pizza Joint, why not come have a slice for yourself?
