About

Russo's New York Pizzeria Franchise

Partner with Chef Anthony Russo and the only Authentic New York style pizza franchise available with a Global presence!

The Russo’s brand is Chef Inspired, Chef Created and Chef Driven!

In quick service and fast casual dining, the pizza segment remains in consistent global demand!   Russo’s New York Pizzeria looks to continue with this demand by expanding its franchise base with franchisees who share Chef Russo’s passion.

The timing could not be better!  The Pizza business is booming!  It is one of the fastest growing segments of the restaurant industry!  There are five primary compelling differences we offer that sets Russo’s apart from all the other confusing concepts and quick-serve brands:

  1. We are the only authentic New York Style Pizza franchise available!
  2. We are Chef Created, Chef Inspired and Chef Driven!
  3. We are more than Pizza….our hand crafted Pizzas are phenomenal, but it doesn’t stop there!  We also offer made-from-scratch Pastas, Soups, Salads, Calzones and Italian Flat Bread sandwiches.  Our fabulous desserts are flown-in, fresh, from our Bakery partner in New York City, all of which gives our loyal customers encouragement to eat at Chef Russo’s table, multiple times per month.
  4. Our brand offers five selling segments, Dine-In Lunch, Dine-In Dinner, Carry-Out, Delivery and Catering.
  5. We feature Healthy choices for those who are seeking a dining option that supports a Heart Healthy life style.  Chef Russo’s ingredients are all natural, with no preservatives and zero trans-fats.  Many are organic and we have a full selection of gluten free pizzas and pastas for those who have gluten sensitivity or suffer from Celiac Disease.

Chef Anthony Russo, our Founder and CEO, takes a personal interest in every franchisee and every location.  He creates amazing flavors from his family’s traditional recipes featuring his original, unique, all natural ingredients.  He demands a commitment to product quality and excellent customer experiences and inspires inviting restaurant designs that are warm and comfortable, yet modern, trendy and unique to each location and all supported by a proven franchise system.

Recent industry statistics show that;

What Makes Russo’s So Special?

Russo's New York Pizzeria is refreshing and original in today's cluttered market place. We use Chef Russo’s traditional, authentic Italian family recipes made with only the freshest ingredients staying true to his Italian roots, where food and family come first.   "If it isn’t fresh, don’t serve it" is Chef Russo’s family promise and the core of his menu.   Competitors take short cuts and use frozen dough, pre-made pizza sauce and frozen toppings.  Chef Russo hand selects his ingredients for all of his family’s traditional recipes, from Naples and Sicily.  He is committed to providing only the freshest, high quality ingredients.   All natural, with no preservatives, no additives and zero trans-fats, Chef Russo’s proprietary ingredients, made-from-scratch dough, sauces and pastas, and Sicilian extra virgin olive oil, build the wonderful flavors our customers have come to love and encourages them to come back time and time again.
