SPECIAL DEAL FOR NEW FRANCHISEES
THE KONO STORY
Kono founder Carlo Ruggiero, an Italian transplant to the United States, discovered the Kono concept during a family trip to Europe, and instantly recognized the opportunity to shake up the U.S. pizza market. After bringing the idea to his savvy U.S. entrepreneur partner David Ragosa, the duo struck a deal to bring the Kono concept to the United States. There are already 15 "konocations" in development, with Kono USA now in “Andiamo!" (Let's go!) mode!
THE KONO CONE
The KONO cone is pizza reinvented. Our cones were created to provide consumers with authentic Italian pizza made from only high-quality ingredients, with mobility in mind! KONO Pizza tastes better, you feel better about eating it and the best part is you won’t spill sauce down your shirt. We have a menu of cones for breakfast, lunch, dinner and desert to ensure our customers keep coming back all day. Here’s a little more on what makes KONO so unique:
REAL INGREDIENTS: No frozen cheeses, low-quality proteins or cheap produce. For Kono customers, quality always comes first.
EAT ON THE GO: There is no “busier” nation than the United States. We are always on the move and we demand products to support our busy lifestyles. Kono Pizza allows its customers to enjoy a delicious meal, on the fly. You just eat it the same way you would an ice cream cone but, you know, with biting instead of licking.
EASY, CLEAN EATING: Most people love pizza, but they also have a list of things they don’t love about it. “Oil running off the slice onto my clothes”, “the sauce insisting its way onto my cheeks,” and other rants are common among pizza lovers. Not at Kono. Our Kono cone was engineered to ensure that all of the product ended up where it’s supposed to, not on your shirt or on your face!
A HEALTHIER OPTION
Consumers are expected to become even more health-conscious as more studies on obesity and the dangers of eating an unbalanced diet continue to populate the media. Each Kono location serves breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert cones that incorporate healthy alternatives into several menu items. There are a total of seven low-calorie cones on the menu, and they are visibly identified as being low-calorie so consumers know that they are making a nutritious choice.
Kono Pizza has discovered how to integrate delicious ingredients into its menus without packing on the calories. A standard piece of vegetable pizza contains on average 450 calories. Comparatively, a margherita cone from Kono Pizza, which includes turkey, Swiss, tomato, lettuce and the cone itself, totals just 250 calories.
SCALE, GROW, ANDIAMO!
Whether you want to own just one location or build an empire like our Roman ancestors, Kono Pizza has a variety of business models available for our famiglia to choose from. You decide how large or simple you want your business to be. From semi-permanent locations in malls, to food trucks and food carts in professional sports stadiums, it’s up to you!
