Russo's NY Pizzeria and Coal-Fired Italian Kitchen

Russo's NY Pizzeria Franchise
Franchise Interviews meets with the Russo's NY Pizzeria franchise

As we mention in our "About Us" page, every business has a story. This story goes back to Italy. The Russo family opened "Russo's Italian Restaurant" in 1978 after moving from New York to Texas. Russo's Italian Restaurant was a fine dining establishment that used recipes passed down through generations from the Russo family. Anthony Russo is a first generation Italian. Both parents immigrated from Sicily and Naples, Italy, to New York in 1962. At the early age of 12, Anthony spent a lot of time with his family and other influential Italian chefs in the kitchen learning how to prepare fine Italian meals and New York style pizza. His dad's phrase was: "If you can't make it fresh, don't serve it!" We are meeting with Anthony Russo of the Russo's NY Pizzeria and Russo's Coal-Fired Italian Kitchen.
