Slice Resto owners and operators Trev and Deb have worked in the hospitality industry for most of their lives and learned the restaurant business from the ground up – from bussing tables and washing dishes to large venue management. They have learned their trade working in cafes, restaurants, bars, pubs, sports arenas and stadiums across Ontario and Vancouver Island.
In 2010, the couple moved to Cedar and made the decision to strike out independently and realize their dream of operating their own successful culinary venture.
It all started with a mobile catering truck, “On The Fly Catering”, that operated out of Cedar Community Hall and that provided breakfast and lunch options to local businesses throughout the Nanaimo area. With their reputation for great food and excellent service spreading across the city, they jumped at the opportunity to expand the business. In early 2011, they leased a small space near Cedar Secondary School and opened Slice, offering home made pizza and pasta through takeout and delivery. Operating Slice offered a chance to perfect their pizza dough recipe – taught to them by fellow pizza enthusiasts Marvin and Diane – and develop a loyal following of customers. Trev and Deb credit local high school students for supporting their fledgling business through the first year of operation!
In the fall of 2012, an opportunity came up to lease the current location where they could expand the business to a full service restaurant. Slice Resto was born!
Slice Resto is now a family friendly and fully licensed restaurant serving their own unique twist on casual comfort foods. The varied menu offers something for everyone including handmade pizza, burgers, soups & sandwiches, pasta, in-house smoked meats along with a variety of desserts. Slice Resto provides a casual dining experience where the staff treat you like family and the full menu is available for dine in, take out & delivery.
As business-owners, Trev and Deb feel strongly about supporting their community and providing employment for as many local youth as possible; they currently employ over a dozen staff, many of them local high school students. Ingredients are sourced locally wherever possible, and the restaurant contributes often to community fundraisers and events.
Slice Resto has been part of the Nanaimo community since 2011 and, with the amazing support of our customers, we look forward to providing a place where people can enjoy laughter, life, good food & drink for many more years to come.
