Now more than ever people are looking towards the future, feeling that sense of entrepreneurial spirit and wanting to make a change. What’s better than being your own boss? Furthermore, what’s better than owning your own slice of the pie?
Not only are there a lot of franchise companies to choose among, but there are so many advantages to opening a pizza franchise as opposed to starting your own business from scratch.
FIRST, LOOK AT BRAND AWARENESS AND RECOGNITION
Visit the company website and visit a location. How do you like the look and feel? Could you see yourself in the middle of the dining on a Friday night shaking hands and making memories? Russo’s New York Pizzeria has deep roots in its communities and is a fan favorite far and wide.
SECOND, TAKE A LOOK AT THE MENU
Ask a about food costs and labor costs. Can the restaurant survive a global pandemic? Can you capitalize on delivery when the dine business is nonexistent? If you answered yes to both of those questions, then you are in good company. Russo’s New York Pizzeria & Italian kitchen has the perfect menu featuring New York-style pizza, handcrafted pasta dishes, calzones, salads, sandwiches, soups and desserts. At its heart, Russo’s reflects Chef Anthony’s commitment to his New York roots where food and family come first.
LAST BUT NOT LEAST, WHAT’S THE SUPPORT STRUCTURE LOOK LIKE?
Where do I find? Who can help me? And what do I do? Russo’s corporate support team is strong and collaborative with a franchisee-friendly corporate culture and is ready for expansion. What separates Russo’s from the rest of the pizza industry is not only a great support team ready to tackle it all, but also the unique family recipes and fresh ingredients.
