NEW YORK - There aren't many things more iconic or convenient in New York City than a dollar slice of pizza.
But as the city slowly emerges from the pandemic, pizza shops find themselves having to raise their prices.
Two Bros Pizza, which has roughly a half-dozen locations throughout the city, recently increased the price of its dollar slice by 50%. Yes, that "dollar slice" is now $1.50.
According to the latest data, the prices of wholesale food are up 13%, the largest year-to-year increase in 40 years.
There are a few factors that have caused the increase, and you can blame ingredient inflation, labor shortages, and supply chain issues.
