Ranked No. 25 by Entrepreneur Magazine in the Full-Service Restaurant category of the 2017 Top Food Franchises, and named by Nation’s Restaurant News to the 2016 Top 20 Emerging Brands, Russo’s is quickly developing a successful franchise reputation.
You can join the Russo’s family and own a unique, one-of-a-kind franchise location, under a strong brand umbrella at a lower cost of entry than most competitive brands in the fast-casual industry. Our four revenue streams that are available in each of our restaurant concepts include takeout and delivery, which accounted for 16 percent of the $5.9 billion casual dining experience in 2016. Italian ranks as one of the top food choices and 5 billion pizzas are sold every year – with more than 60 percent of all pizza sales happening in the U.S.
Our three concepts, ranging from counter service at just 1,200 square feet – perfect for malls and airports – to full-service, fast-casual dining at 4,000 plus square feet, offer flexibility to franchisees who are seeking different models and investment price points.
On top of all that, you will be immersed in our commitment to quality ingredients and preparation, so you’ll be sharing our excitement for superior pizza – Italian cuisine with a slice of success. If owning your own franchise is something you’ve always dreamed about, let’s talk about how you can become part of our successful family.
Russo’s sells more than pizza. We sell Naples and New York along with every slice, the sense of “being there.” Russo’s boasts a definite flavor of theatre in its venues–the ambience is as authentic as the menu, for enjoyment that discriminating customers appreciate.
What makes Russo’s unique is our dedication to serving the best-tasting New York-style pizza in every market. Your customers don’t have to live in New York to get a taste of famous New York-style pizza. We can serve it anywhere in the world.
No one understands the power of that more than our franchisees. And they tell the story best.
