Here we are, embarking on the new year. As we wrap up and review 2015, we are fortunate that we opened 6 new locations, domestically and internationally and signed 12 new franchised location agreements. We are delighted to celebrate our most recent New York Pizzeria opening in Brownsville, Texas, wrapping up the year for the Russo’s Franchise System. Now, anyone with a craving for authentic, fresh Italian cuisine can visit the newest Russo’s New York Pizzeria restaurant, on Pablo Kisel Blvd., in the Morrison Plaza, one of the hottest growth areas in the city.

This modern, trendy, family friendly Russo’s New York Pizzeria is a 5,000 sf restaurant with private meeting space available for family gatherings, party’s or meetings. It opens for lunch and dinner with an extensive catering menu available. The traditional and inviting restaurant features a full menu of authentic New York-style pizza and Italian dishes and blends the freshness of fine ingredients with the magic created around a handcrafted Italian meal, expertly prepared from our open kitchen, to your table.

“There is nothing else like it in the market! Customers and guests share a true ‘slice’ of New York in this one-of-a-kind restaurant,” said Gabriel Kauachi of VKL Franchise, LLC, an experienced group of entrepreneurs with more than 100 successful service businesses in south Texas. “Our menu consists of traditional Italian pizza, calzones and pasta dishes, created by Chef Anthony Russo, and all made with fresh, all natural ingredients. We are truly excited to share Chef Russo’s creations with the Brownsville community.”
