New Invention Increases Pizza Business Profits
NuVo Grand, LLC crated the patent pending Portion PadL. Designed using a simple but effective concept, this unique cutting board, makes it easy to cut equal pizza slices.

Greg Getzinger, pizza business owner and inventor of the Portion PadL, developed the distinctive cutting board to meet the needs of his business accounts. “It became clear that pizzas sliced in unequal portions caused unique challenges for businesses, school accounts and pizza-by-the-slice fundraisers,” says Getzinger.
“There was food waste and loss of profit due unequal pizza slices. For instance, concessionaires at school sporting events were hesitant to sell the smaller, unequal slices of pizza and people didn’t want to pay the same price for a smaller slice as for a larger slice, even if it was only a slight size difference,” notes Getzinger.
After an exhaustive search for a reasonably-priced, easy to use device that cut equal pizza slices every time, Getzinger came up short. This void in the pizza industry was the catalyst for the invention of the Portion PadL.
The Portion PadL can be customized to fit up to four or more pizza sizes per board. The high quality cutting board is made of NSF approved Richlite®, is heat resistant to 350° and is 100% food safe.
“There isn’t another cutting board on the market that is as versatile or can be as easily customized as the Portion PadL,” says Andrew Spriegel, patent attorney and co-founder of NuVo Grand, LLC. “In addition to traditional pizzerias interested in improving pizza consistency, pizza-by-the-slice operations like schools, hospitals, pizza buffet restaurants, convenience stores and foodservice management companies will benefit from the Portion PadL’s equal slices,” adds Spriegel.
