The Late Night Slice Pizza Box

Posted by cmh gourmand on May 29, 2018

Let me introduce you to the Late Night Slice pizza box, at least the current version (#4). The economics of pizza boxes are more challenging than you think. If you want something fancy, with art work and all, like the Late Night Slice box, but you also want to stay in business, you need to buy by the semi load to make the price point affordable.

Late Night Slice started with a “cover” on each box by year. But the dynamics of pizza box ordering make ordering tricky because one does not want to under or over order if you are linked to a year. Due to this, the 2016 boxes premiered late in said year. Then I waited, and waited and waited for 2017 to appear but I keep seeing vintage 2016’s each month. I then wondered if the 2017 box would be skipped or premiere in December until I saw the box showcased at the beginning of this post. This box caused a bit of bewilderment because I wondered how I missed #1, #2 and #3. However, the number of the boxes does make sense when you consider the previous changes in cover art that were to be by year not by version. All of the art is created by local artist Pat Moore. Pat has a long history of supporting local business and hanging out with the Late Night Slice gang so this local collaboration makes sense.

Some features carry over from box to box no matter what the version is. You can always count for two of the sides to spell out the mantra that has allowed Late Night Slice to grow into an empire: PAY, EAT, LEAVE. The bottom of the box also has artwork on it and is always changed when the front cover is updated. The “mascot” you see on both is named Mr. Pizza Face. You may be glad or disturbed to know there is a life sized costume version of him complete with leg hair. Classy.
