Mike and Cristy Thomas opened the restaurant in early 2018 at 580 E. Crossville Road, with a menu featuring a variety of made-to-order pizzas (including the popular $28, 24-inch Wild Slice), baked sandwiches, paninis, pastas, salads and gluten-free options. All items were offered in kid-sized portions at half the price. Wild Slice "put equally as much thought into the kids as the adults," according to its website.
Mike Thomas said the plan is to reopen Wild Slice in a different location this year. While he initally opened the restaurant without investors and “had great progress,” he wasn’t able to sustain the Roswell location without moving forward without an investor who fell through.
“Wild Slice isn’t dead, the Roswell location is dead,” he said, adding that he still owns the brand and trademark and plans to operate food trucks and pop-ups at other local pizzerias “to keep the brand fresh and top of mind” while next steps for a brick-and-mortar are explored.
“We’re very proud of what we’ve been able to accomplish in the two years we’ve been here,” he said.
