Russo’s New York Pizzeria Ranked #24 in Full-service Restaurants

HOUSTON – Russo’s New York Pizzeria was recently ranked number 24 on Entrepreneur “Top 200 Food and Restaurant Franchises List of 2018”.

This prestigious ranking reflects the substantial growth the company has seen in the past year. Further, the ranking comes just as the brand premieres its innovative new menu that blends generations of Russo family Italian recipes with fresh quality ingredients.

“We’re honored to be included in Entrepreneur’s prestigious Top 200 ranking for the second year in a row. It validates the drive, commitment to quality and innovation behind Russo’s Restaurants,” said Chef Anthony Russo, CEO and founder of Russo’s Restaurants. “This ranking is a testament to the support, strength and success of our brand.”

The key factors that go into Entrepreneur ’s evaluation include costs and fees, size, growth, support, brand value, and financial strength and stability. All franchises are given a cumulative score based on more than 150 data points, and the 500 franchises with the highest cumulative scores become the Franchise 500 ® in ranking order. The Top 200 rankings are based on the score each company received when evaluated by the Franchise 500® formula.

“We spend months gathering and crunching data in order to produce the Franchise 500 ranking. We’re proud of the result and the way it continues to be a resource for the franchise community,” says Jason Feifer, editor in chief of  Entrepreneur. “Like every industry, franchising is ever-evolving and must smartly react to new technologies and consumer demands. We know it takes a lot to stay competitive, and are excited to celebrate those that do it best.”

Russo’s New York Pizzeria garners a cult-like following for its truly authentic and delicious Italian dishes made from the freshest ingredients, and its New York-style pizza. The restaurants blend premium recipes with the freshest ingredients that are all natural with no preservatives, no additives and zero trans-fats. Chef Russo’s family promise, “If it isn’t fresh, don’t serve it!” is the mantra of each and every franchisee who is certified under the Russo’s brand operating criteria.
