Iconic NYC Pizzeria Bids Farewell to $1 Pizza Slices amid Bidenflation

'We were no longer able to break even...'

(Jacob Bruns, Headline USA) One of New York City’s most famous pizza restaurants is putting an end to its popular $1 pizza slice as inflation sweeps America, the New York Post reported.

The iconic pizza chain, 2 Bros. Pizza, announced recently that it has been forced to up the price of its slices to $1.50 to cover for increased costs.

“Over the past few years, we had done everything in our power to keep the cheese slices at $1 while refusing to compromise on our quality,” co-owner Eli Halali said Monday. “We were no longer able to break even.”

According to Halali, the primary driver of the cost increase is skyrocketing cheese prices.

“The biggest issue in recent months was cheese prices stabilizing at a higher average than where they’ve been for the last decade,” Halali explained.

He also noted that cheese costs account for 40% of the company’s food expenditures.

Eli Halali’s brother, Oren, noted that, while cheese is the main driver, the prices of pretty much every other ingredient have also gone up.

“Inflation is affecting every single ingredient, every single item we use,” he said in a 2021 interview. “Flour, cheese, tomatoes, gloves, paper goods, paper plates, napkins. Everything. Labor is definitely up, as well.”

Some customers, however, remain unhappy about the jacked-up pricing.

“Man, this pisses me off!” said James DeCamp, a native New Yorker and New School student.

“I usually get three slices, but now I’m only getting two,” he continued. “… Everywhere else is doing the exact same thing. I’ve been watching the price go up by two and three times over the past year. This sucks.”

Costs across the board have rocketed upward since President Joe Biden took the reins of the U.S. economy in 2021, though the president and his administration have gone to great lengths to downplay the extremity of the situation.

Yet, as Americans are increasingly squeezed by the high cost of living, Biden and Democrats in Congress are rolling out record-high budgets that would cause the national debt to surpass $50 trillion within a decade.

“Just last week, Biden put forward a $6.8 trillion budget that’s even more full of reckless taxes and spending than his last terrible proposal,” said Sen. Rick Scott, R-Fla., in a March 17 statement.

“Credit card debt is up and savings are down as families struggle to make ends meet,” he continued. “… The president needs to WAKE UP and realize that the pain he is causing for hardworking Americans won’t end until he ends his addiction to reckless government spending.”
