What is VersatilityPLUS?

When you feature halves, quarters and slices customers can clearly see the mounds of fresh fruit and tender, flaky crust. Smaller portion sizes have lower price points which will encourage trial of new flavors and reduced waste. Quarter pies and slices are also an excellent addition to your home meal replacement and in-store restaurant offerings. 

                   All this means more dollars at the register.
