Looking for a unique foodservice offer that requires minimal labor and comes with its own edible package? A new company founded by food designer and consultant Nir Adar offers "the first real food innovation since sliced bread."
While living in New York, Adar saw how people wrestled with enormous pizza slices and wondered if there was an easier way to eat pizza on the go.

And that was the birth of Crispy Cones.

There's a slightly salted cone for pizza(pictured), a taco cone for chili, and a dessert cone similar to a pie crustfor sweet fillings; Adar is also in the process of developing a rice cone forgluten-free food options.
