Slackwater Pizza to open at Industry Salt Lake City

Salt Lake City — Pizza lovers rejoice! INDUSTRY SLC will soon be home to Slackwater Pizza’s mouth-watering artisan pizzas slated to open in late 2021. With locations in Ogden and Sandy, Slackwater Pizza has grown into a staple for foodies and craft beer connoisseurs in the Beehive State.

Selecting INDUSTRY for its third location was an easy choice for the Slackwater team who will look to employ 80+ employees from the area. The new space includes patio seating, an open air atmosphere, expansive garage doors for natural light, and will seat 250 people comfortably. From brunch to beer to buffalo wings, Slackwater will continue to serve its popular and curated menu in this new spot.

“We believe in having unique spaces that feed off of the areas they are in,” says Blake Hirschi of Slackwater Pizza. “We hope that everyone can feel comfortable and welcomed by our space while enjoying our same great menu. We are excited and grateful for the opportunity to operate out of INDUSTRY with all the cool spaces and growth they have planned for the area.”

The Slackwater team signed on to the INDUSTRY SLC location during the height of the Covid pandemic, standing by their strong insight of the resurgence of dine-in-eating soon on the horizon and confidence in the Granary District location.

“We are thrilled to add Slackwater to the INDUSTRY SLC family and excited to have executed this lease in the height of the pandemic. Slackwater is a strong local tenant and is embracing the revitalization of the Granary District neighborhood,” says Jason Winkler, co-founder of INDUSTRY.

Slackwater’s menu for their INDUSTRY location will be in a similar fashion to their existing locations with staple favorites, a rotating special menu, and an expansive beer and drink menu. 

About Slackwater Pizza: Slackwater is a locally owned and operated restaurant. We opened the doors of our Ogden location in June of 2011 as a 30-seat pizza shop with 75 beer options. We quickly grew into a 220 seat, 250 beer hot spot in the heart of Ogden. We have been lucky to be so well supported by our town and after some years of hard work, we were able to expand to Sandy Utah in November of 2019. After a little more than a year of establishing a fanbase on the south side of the valley, we are coming to downtown SLC at the new INDUSTRY development. We pin our success and growth on the high standards of service and food that our incredible staff has embraced and shared with the community.
