Russo's interior

The pizza industry accounts for 38 billion in US sales. Consumers are craving healthy menu options from fast casual brands that are chef driven. Russo's has a creative menu designed for lunch and dinner serving great Italian entrées made fresh without a need for a commissary. As a result, our franchise partners benefit with lower food costs and a menu that drives dine-in, carry-out, delivery and catering sales and supports our focus on  customer satisfaction.

"Once my dad said, 'If you can't make it fresh, don't serve it,' and that phrase is a true statement that I will never forget in my kitchen." - Chef Anthony Russo


With a Russo's franchise, you'll benefit from over 30 years of success. During that time, we've fine-tuned our operations from Point-of-Sale systems to training, to management structure, to marketing, to culinary research. You start off with an experienced mentor on your side. You don’t have to worry about getting all of the systems in place. We'll help you do that. You just have to run your business and we'll train you to do that.



Our training and support system is one of the most comprehensive in the market place. Your training begins at our corporate location in Houston, Texas. It is, on average, a 6 to 8 week program, of hands-on training in one of our restaurants. From there we assist with pre- & post-opening and ongoing operation
