This year’s MAKE by Slice made history. Even though we couldn’t gather in person, our virtual conference brought pizza’s leading innovators together to strengthen our industry.
But, that’s not all. We also unveiled two brand new products that have the independent pizza world buzzing. First, we showcased Slice Register, the world’s first POS system made just for shops. Then, we rolled out Slice Rewards, the nation’s largest customer loyalty program for local pizza.
It was all made possible by our incredible partners. We literally couldn’t have done it without you. In case you missed it, here’s a look back at the best of MAKE, plus exclusive bonus content to help you grow the pie even further.
Fireside Chat with Barstool Sports
It’s hard to believe that Barstool Sports was once a small Boston-area blog comprised of 12 employees. With CEO Erika Nardini at the helm, Barstool became a global powerhouse that’s synonymous with pizza. Watch as Erika and Slice founder Ilir Sela deliver insights on all things content and oven-fresh One Bite news.
How Tech Fuels Independent Pizzerias
The pizza biz takes more than dough, tomatoes, and oregano. Just ask Ilir Sela. Ilir isn’t just the founder and CEO of Slice — he’s also a proud third-generation member of the independent pizza community.
In the digital age, local shops need specialized technology to drive order volume and brand awareness. Already, Slice has enabled 15,000+ small business owners to compete with the big chains. Still, Ilir says that Slice has only just begun to revolutionize the industry. In celebration of Slice’s ten-year anniversary, Ilir reflected on his journey and unveiled brand new tools to make your shop even more successful.
