A Slice of New York is a 33-employee worker cooperative consisting of two retail pizzerias in San Jose, CA. The owners decided to exit the business after 10 years but felt a strong loyalty to their employees. They had seen the positive incentives of broadly held stock in previous tech industry jobs and embraced practices that shared surpluses with workers, culminating in the business sale. The transition to worker ownership took over a year, and the owners are now working to open the path for more businesses through communication and advocacy.
