Russo's Restaurants to expand retail network in US, overseas

RBR Staff Writer Published 24 December 2013

Russo's Restaurants, the family of dining concepts that includes Russo's New York Pizzeria and Russo's Coal-Fired Italian Kitchen, is looking to enhance the brands' US and international presence in 2014.

Russo's intends to open additional 12-15 restaurants in 2014 in Dallas, Houston, Honolulu, San Antonio, and Austin in the US; and in Bahrain, Qatar and Saudi Arabia in the Middle East.

Presently, there are 26 Russo's Restaurants in development.

These store openings are part of the restaurant chain's strategy to expand the brand footprint and strengthen its retail network.

Russo said that it has excellent opportunities in fantastic US markets for franchise growth.

"For those looking to develop three or more units of one of the best pizza concepts or a distinctive full-service Italian restaurant, our flexible incentives are sure to impress."

"Our pilot program is designed for a franchisee that is looking for a great opportunity to own part of a brand that is built to stand the test of time - a pair of proven concepts," the company said.

Russo presently operates more than 30 outlets. Further, dozens more are expected to open in the next three to five years.
