The Multi-Unit Franchising Conference took place April 8-10 at Caesars Palace in the heart of Las Vegas. Known around the world for its fresh, delicious Italian fare in a casual, family-friendly ambiance, Russo’s New York Pizzeria made an appearance in Sin City to spread its multi-unit franchising message.
Representing the Russo’s team, David Martinez, a Russo’s franchisee and multi-unit operator of three units with plans for a fourth, was a panel speaker at a conference session. Martinez helped represent the band as it powers through an outstanding 2015, which has already included the opening of the company’s twenty-first Houston-area location in Spring, Texas.
An additional 10-12 restaurants are planned to open during the remainder of the ear throughout markets like Dallas, Houston, San Antonio and Austin. Currently, there are 20 Russo’s Restaurants in development, including two signed agreements in the UAE, bringing its total to six in the Middle East.
“We have excellent opportunities in fantastic U.S. markets for franchise growth,” said Chef and CEO Anthony Russo. “For entrepreneurs looking to develop three or more units of our proven concepts, our low cost of entry and flexible incentives are your one-stop shop for opportunity.”
