History[edit]

Freshslice Pizza at Centrepoint Mall

Ray J. Russell established Freshslice Pizza with a purpose of developing a new fast-food concept. His goal was to combine pizza delivery with self-serve dining.[1] Freshslice has been awarded the Consumer Choice Awards for Business Excellence in 2007 and 2009.[2][3] This company has run into some difficulties recently: the company was issued a court order to pay $44,000 for hiring illegal workers.[4]
