Russo's Ranks in Franchise Business Review's Top 30 Food Franchises

November 04, 2011 // Franchising.com // HOUSTON – Russo’s Coal-Fired Italian Kitchen, renowned for taking its guests to Italy and back with its authentic Italian restaurant experience and homemade dishes, has been honored for the first time as a Top 30 Food Franchise by Franchise Business Review (FBR).

The rankings for all 30 food franchises are determined by factors such as franchisee satisfaction, training and support, leadership, overall franchise system, franchisee community, core values of the franchisor, financial opportunity and general satisfaction.

“It is an honor to be listed as a top 30 food franchise by such a prestigious publication,” said Anthony Russo, Founder and CEO of Russo’s Coal-Fired Italian Kitchen. “This recognition speaks volumes about our business and the time and dedication each franchisee puts into the brand.”

Determined by franchisee satisfaction research, economic impact studies and sector reports, food franchising is up from 2011 at 65.2 percent vs. 61.16 percent in 2010. Food franchising continues to thrive despite a struggling economy as Russo’s makes the Top 30 Food Franchise list alongside 25 percent of pizza concepts.

Russo’s is known for its menu items focused on traditional Italian favorites, with the company’s classic New York style pizzas headlining the offerings. Recipes dating back to Chef Anthony’s grandparents are featured, including freshly prepared Gnocchi Bolognese, Chicken Picatta, Pasta Di Mare and handcrafted Italian Cannolis. All items are made-from-scratch daily with fresh, premium ingredients that Russo has hand-selected himself.

Russo’s has also received several industry accolades, both for its award-winning food and franchise operations. FBR also presented Russo’s with its esteemed “Franchise Satisfaction Award,” a designation reserved for franchise concepts receiving the highest satisfaction scores from its franchisees. Entrepreneur magazine recently listed Russo’s New York Pizza in its “Franchise 500” rankings, and Technomic, the restaurant industry’s foremost authority on research and consulting, named Russo’s a “Top Rated Franchise.”
