    ASONY REINSATES DoorDash

    9/11/18 - UPDATED -
    We tested DoorDash today (9/11/18), and it was much better. Still some issues, but we have a pretty good idea on how to work with it. Please let us know if you have issues by reaching out to us directly - delivery@asliceofny.com.

    If you want delivery, please use the following link and DO NOT use the DoorDash app directly to order from us. Simply click this link (or bookmark it) to access our DoorDash menu. It will save us over 50% of the commission DoorDash takes from us and will keep that revenue in our business. Your expereince will be the same.

    Please understand that DoorDash takes 25% of the order revenue from us. On top of that, the additional taxes, tip, and fees do not go to ASONY. We are looking at how this significant fee will impact our business, and we might have to raise prices specifically for DoorDash service.

    Once you use DoorDash, we no longer know who you are! We want to stay connected to our friends and customers, so please let us know what your experience is by emailing us at - delivery@asliceofny.com. We want to hear from you directly, whether it is good, bad, issues, questions, etc. Please keep in mind, the crew making your pizza are no longer able to get a tip from you.

    We welcome your thoughts. These are hard times for everyone, but incredibly hard for our team to live in this area and for us to properly compensate them.

    Thank you for all your years of support.

    Kirk Vartan
    General Manager/Founder
    The A Slice of New York Worker Cooperative

    To learn more about our co-op and co-ops in general, see below





    A Slice of New York is now a worker cooperative!
    ASONY has transitioned to a worker cooperative (co-op)! This will help us achieve our goal of being a progressive Bay Area business, one that supports its employees, the community, and provides great food and service. Membership is open to all employees and is completely optional.

    What is a co-op?
    A worker cooperative is a form of employee ownership. What makes co-ops unique is they are businesses both owned and governed by their workers. Strategic decision making is democratic, adhering to the principle of one member, one vote. Profits are earned based on hours worked. Worker co-ops create long-term stable jobs, have sustainable business practices, and are connected and accountable to their community.

    What does our cooperative look like?
    Our daily operations remain the same. Our original owners and founders, Kirk and Marguerite, continue their key roles within the company, but ASONY is now governed by its staff. This means that co-op members make decisions about things like workplace governance, annual budget, company direction, and strategy. They also share in the profits and risks of the company on an equal basis. Not all our staff are members of the cooperative, and we may always be a mix of members and non-members, but we strive for an ownership culture and a democratically governed workplace.

    Why?
    As a company, we believe in the democratic process (see video) and our goal is to provide stability and growth opportunity. We believe in a just economy. Our purpose in becoming a cooperative is to make, and keep, ASONY an enduring company that offers members job stability and career opportunities in the local community and in the local food industry. We believe that the best way for ASONY to continue to grow and prosper is to make sure the focus of our business is on both the quality of our product and the people who make, serve, and sell it.
