July 14, 2010, Prince Albert, Sask. – The newly launched Pizza Scoop's patent pending design is a simple press
board triangular container that customers can use to completely eaten piece of pizza
without ever having to touch the crust for a cleaner slice experience.
Without having to purchase any new equipment, Pizza Scoop
works immediately in any setting that currently sells pizza-by-the-slice, and
increases the appeal of choosing pizza as a meal on the go.
The design consists of a simple press
board triangular container that accommodates a wide piece of pizza, folded
lengthwise, to fit in its opening. The user can then use their fingers to pinch
the sides of the Pizza Scoop to hold the pizza in place and use their teeth to
pull it forward as they eat. The result is a completely eaten piece of pizza
without ever having to touch the crust, which leaves the patron clean, full,
"It started as a simple realization," says
its inventor Evan Drury in a news release. "We wanted to eat something quick since we were
in a rush, but the only drive through places are burger joints. I then wondered
why pizza, the number one order in food in North America, wasn't competing in
this space. The idea really hit me while watching a person eat a hamburger with
one hand while texting on their cell phone with the other. People lead busy
life styles and are constantly multi tasking. The goal was crystal clear; make
pizza a one handed mess free meal."
For now, Pizza Scoop is providing pizzerias an
alternative to the large triangular boxes. In the future however, Drury
envisions pizzerias with drive-thru windows, competing with the market
traditionally dominated by hamburgers by serving Pizza Scoop pizza in paper wrappers. For more information please visit Pizza Scoop's website.
