I have always been interested in food...eating and cooking! In 2021 I bought myself a 'lockdown gift', an Ooni pizza oven. Desperate to practise and improve I soon started cooking for all our neighbours on our new build estate in North Herts. Their encouragement led my wife and I to officially start Slice of Price in October 2021. We started selling to the local area from our back garden, a great way to meet people! Overwhelmed by demand, we started trading from the local market and a regular 'pop up' at the local pub soon followed. We bought another pizza oven, a pop up gazebo and a bit of kit and we are enjoying watching our small business grow. We now have a variety or events lined up as well as a few collaborations with other local small businesses. Oh... and we have just ordered another oven!
Be persistent and don't give up! Liz, my wife, is like a dog with a bone, but that attitude has really helped to drive us forward.
