Slyce Pizza Bar – Indian Rocks Beach, FL

Our Team


Slyce ownership and management team


Jack Bennett


Jack has a long history in Pinellas County. Although born in Michigan, he's spent most of his life in the Tampa Bay area.

Before founding Slyce Pizza Bar, Jack started, and still runs, several construction and development companies that operate in the surrounding counties. Jack is the force behind the Slyce customer experience concept and community outreach strategies.

His hobbies are planning the next big thing for Slyce and spending time with his beautiful wife and two lovely daughters.


Ken Gillespie


Originally from the Golden state, Ken has worked for himself all but a few short years of his life. His passion for creating things that people need and enjoy has led him down several paths the last 30 years.

Building and remodeling homes has been his primary focus, while cooking and creating in the kitchen has been a second love since the dawn of the Food Network in the eighties (his former addiction).


Suzanne Brown

General Manager

Suzanne’s experience in the food business is too long to list, but she was heavily involved in the fast paced growth of the Hops restaurant chain before Slyce talked her into running this start-up pizza bar concept.

She thrives on thankless hours and extreme working conditions. She spends her off hours trying to get some sleep at her home near Pass-a-Grille and chasing the American dream.

Christopher Derry

Digital Manager

Founder of Salt Creative, Chris wears many hats behind the digital curtain at Slyce Pizza Bar.

Chris is in charge of development and maintenance of the Slyce website. He also manages social media, online communications and creative development.

Chris often works remotely, but if you happen to see him putting in some face-time at Slyce, feel free to say hello. We hear he enjoys Magic Hat #9 and a good high five. You may even see him performing live music on occasion as percussionist of the trop-rock duo known as The Tropical Pigs.

Visit Chris and tell him Slyce sent ya!
