Russo’s New York Pizzeria Opens Second Austin Restaurant

Authentic New York-style Pizza Brand Joins Roster of Gourmet Eateries in The Arboretum at Great Hills

September 12, 2017 // Franchising.com // AUSTIN, Texas – The lone star state’s only authentic New York pizzeria is taking its own slice out of central Texas.

One of Austin’s most highly anticipated restaurant openings of the year, Russo’s New York Pizzeria, opened Monday, September 11. Local residents, commuters and visitors can now savor the tastes, aromas and unmistakable ambiance of an authentic New York-style pizzeria. The well-known, chef driven, fast casual Italian restaurant franchise, that brings to life old-world charm and hospitality opens at The Arboretum at 10721 Research Boulevard.

“Russo’s is an admired name in the restaurant industry,” said Amin Esar, local restaurateur and owner of the new Russo’s New York Pizzeria. “Every dish on our menu, whether it’s pizza, calzones or pasta, is handcrafted and made with fresh ingredients. You’d be hard-pressed to find this authenticity anywhere else in the area and I can’t wait to bring it to the community – Benvenuto, Austin!”

With nearly 20 years of restaurant operating experience under his belt, Esar is happiest when on the restaurant floor visiting with guests. Esar’s work in the industry, solid financial base, ties to the community and customer relationships makes him an ideal member of the Russo’s franchise network.

Austin’s new Russo’s New York Pizzeria, which joins the Pflugerville location in the Austin market, is open for lunch and dinner with an extensive catering menu available. The traditional and inviting restaurant features a full menu of authentic New York-style pizza and Italian dishes. The restaurant blends the freshness of fine ingredients with the magic created around a handcrafted Italian meal.

“Amin is such a valuable member of the Russo’s Restaurants family,” said Chef Russo, the creative culinary genius behind the brand who also serves as its CEO. “His passion for restaurant operations is contagious and, because of his years of experience and high energy, I’m confident Amin will continue to carry on the Russo’s family tradition throughout Austin and beyond.”

Russo’s New York Pizzeria and its traditional Italian recipes trace their origins to a tight-knit family where the kitchen was the center of activity.

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. Chef Russo’s family promise, “If it isn’t fresh, don’t serve it!” is the mantra of each and every franchisee who has been certified and mastered the Russo’s brand operating criteria.
