Russo’s New York Pizzeria Franchise Opportunity

Russo’s New York Pizzeria is a unique, upscale fast-casual New York Style Pizza and Italian Kitchen franchise unlike any other franchise concept available.

Russo’s Chef-Inspired concept, founded by Anthony Russo, Head Chef and CEO, is known worldwide for his classic New York style pizza and family recipes for authentic Italian cuisine.

It Started In the Russo Family Kitchen

The son of first-generation Italian immigrants, Chef Anthony Russo grew up in a New Jersey home where the kitchen was the center of family life. There was always cooking and baking at home, and many of the ingredients came from the family garden - just as his Grandpa and Nonna Russo did back in Avellino, Italy.

These experiences stuck with young Anthony as his family moved to Galveston, Texas in 1978. His father opened Russo’s Italian Restaurant, which quickly became a local favorite. Just like that, Anthony found a second home in the restaurant kitchen. By the age of 12, he was learning family recipes from relatives who flew in from Naples and Sicily each summer. Making pizza and scachatta (a stuffed pizza similar to a calzone) became a passion.

Ideal Candidate to Buy a Russo’s Pizza Franchise

When it comes to franchising Russo’s looks for franchisee partners with the right motivations, experience and passion to help grow the brand. In turn, they offer their franchisees one-one support and expertise to help them drive their businesses in their local markets.

Rather than looking for pure investment partners, Russo’s is dedicated to building personal relationships and trust through the skills and expertise that both their franchise and their franchisees bring to the table.

Russo’s brings a successful, internationally proven growth concept, which promises great chances for success when implemented systematically.
