October 07, 2014 // // MORRISTOWN, NJ - Villa Enterprises, multi-brand restaurant operator and franchisor celebrating 50 years in business, has opened its newest Villa Italian Kitchen in Mexico City at Centro Las Americas, in Ecatepec, marking 12 locations now serving their New York style pizza in Mexico and first location in Mexico City.

"Villa is proud to serve Mexico City our New York style pizza and Stromboli," said Adam Torine, Senior Vice President of Development, Villa Enterprises. "Ecatepec residents can now enjoy the same great taste and fresh ingredients that our loyal Villa customers experience at our other locations in Mexico and around the world."

Starting with its first pizzeria in New York City 50 years ago, the company’s Villa Italian Kitchen flagship brand now has more than 270 locations worldwide. Villa Italian Kitchen features Neapolitan and pan pizzas handmade with fresh dough, 100% whole milk mozzarella and homemade sauce. Villa’s handmade Stromboli is also a favorite, and Italian pastas and entrees make for a delicious lunch or dinner. Villa offers large to-go orders and catering, perfect for pizza lovers, the family or events.

Villa Fresh Italian Kitchen in Ecatepec increases Villa Enterprises Management presence to more than 45 international locations in eight countries including Italy, Mexico, Azerbaijan, Colombia, UAE, Egypt, Libya, and St. Maarten.

Villa was founded 50 years ago, and built its business on the strict loyalty to authentic old-world recipes that Michele Scotto brought with him from Naples, Italy. From the first pizzeria that opened next to the Ed Sullivan Theater on Broadway in New York, to Mexico City’s new Villa Italian Kitchen, that commitment to quality food and genuine hospitality is still the hallmark of Villa.
