The Table of Arthur's Knights sells a lunch buffet where you can get slices of the pizzas within the buffet.

I've seen PJs also do the slice thing.

But yeah, most of the major franchises I've seen don't really do that.

Or at least some other folks have the same delusion.

My guess is that it is/was a thing they tried and either it varys by location or they don't do it anymore, but the folks at your location are too new to remember.

By the slice only seems to take off in areas where walk-in traffic will sell fast enough to not waste food/money. There's places like WinCo, with the "Leonardi's Pizza" in front that do sell slices since there's so much traffic routed right by the display.

Buzzard: Good point. IIRC, the first "Slice" location in NOLA was right next to a Whole Foods location in a reasonably gentrified neighborhood. Thus, people tired from shopping (or, if they're wise, people eating BEFORE shopping) who would go there to counteract all of that (hopefully) good-for-you food from WF with a nice, big, foldable, greasy New Yawk slice.

Might have been a franchise decision...
That would be my take on that.

What kind of pizza place doesn't sell by the slice?
Quite a few indies and a few local chains.

My local Whole Foods actually sells pizza by the slice! They have a whole counter section for it.

A lot of stores near me sell pizza by the slice. And some that don't sell by the slice have very small pizzas, 7 inch diameter, that aren't much more than a slice of pizza.
