With our Coal-Fired Italian Kitchen venues, we’ve taken our award-winning Russo’s New York-style pizzeria and expanded the concept in every way, for a more upscale, sit-down ristorante atmosphere. Coal firing adds a level of authenticity to everything we cook – temperatures in our brick ovens approach 1,000 degrees, to impart a lighter, crispier quality to our pizza crust, in keeping with the modern taste for a lower-carb cuisine, yet without sacrificing flavor or savor.
“Yes, it’s actually coal-fired pizza! Yes, I am genuinely impressed. This place has something going for it, and most chains lose quality as they grow. This one doesn’t seem to be losing anything. If thin-crust pizza is your thing (or calzones, or caprese, or great prosciutto), check it out.”
“Veterans come back with strong leadership skills and a thorough understanding of teams,” said Anthony Russo, Founder of Russo’s New York Pizzeria, noting just like in the military, in franchising, the mission is accomplished by the team. “We are proud to offer this incentive to our nation’s finest and look forward to adding more veterans to our franchise network.”
“Fernando looked at several brands to franchise before choosing Russo’s for its strong financial performance, unique store design and homemade pizza and pastas from the Russo family recipes. I did the research and found Russo’s to be the best in the industry,” Cordova said. “I’m incredibly pleased with the opening results”
“Along with its sister brand, Russo’s Coal-Fired Italian Kitchen, Russo’s New York Pizzeria has garnered a cult-like following for its truly authentic and delicious Italian dishes made from the freshest ingredients, and its New York-style pizza. The restaurants blend premium recipes with the freshest ingredients that are all natural with no preservatives, no additives and zero trans-fats.”
As a first-generation Italian, Chef Anthony Russo oversees everything with care, to honor his national heritage of family gathered together for a heart-warming meal. Pizza and pasta are the soul food of Italy, rooted in the southern European countryside and the pride that every cook takes in the personal touch that crowns every dish we serve.
