Slice is an online food ordering platform for independent pizzerias.[1][2] It allows pizzeria owners to offer their products to their customers using a mobile-optimized website and their customers can place orders through the Slice app and social media channels.[3][4] The company claims their platform is used by 9,000 pizzerias in 2,500 towns and cities in the US.[5] It also claims to have processed more than $100 million worth of deliveries in 2017 and to have filled a total of over 12 million orders since 2010.[1][6]
