Benefits of a Proven Business Model
A proven business model is a huge advantage for franchising versus a start-up business.
With a Russo’s franchise, you’ll benefit from over 30 years of success. During that time, we’ve fine-tuned our operations from Point-of-Sale systems to training, to management structure, to marketing, to culinary research. You start off with an experienced mentor on your side. You don’t have to worry about getting all of the systems in place. We’ll help you do that. You just have to run your business and we’ll train you to do that.
4 Revenue Opportunities
Income streams flow together
The pizza industry is teeming with opportunity and room for innovation. However, before plunging in, you need to fully analyze the different profit segments of the fast-casual market.
1: SIT-DOWN DINING
Whether accessed through our fast-paced counter service or table service, our classic pizzerias serve fresh, made-to-order pizza, pasta, and salads, allowing customers to experience the traditional New York pizzeria feel, but still at a reasonable price.
Pizza delivery services allow customers to call in or place their orders online. Traditionally, this is a key service to most popular pizza franchises, but what differentiates us is our full menu in addition to pizza, which increases overall sales.
Approximately 20 percent to 45 percent of our customers prefer takeout, making this service the most popular and profitable, offering the same quick convenience as delivery, but minus the tip.
We offer full-service catering for events large and small, corporate or private. Let our serving staff take the pressure off, so you can relax and enjoy the occasion. We offer a full menu of Italian specialties, or we can customize a buffet for a less formal setting.

These figures represent the average restaurant revenue of six (6) domestic Company-operated Russo’s New York Pizzeria locations of various designs and sizes for our fiscal year ended December 31, 2016, along with average Food Costs and Net Income for the six(6) domestic Company-operated Russo’s New York Pizzeria outlets only. Actual results could vary substantially from unit to unit and Franchisor cannot estimate the results of any particular franchise. The Average Net Income does not include a royalty fee because these locations are Company-operated. The expenses incurred by a franchised restaurant will include our standard royalty fee. Because Russo’s operates 6 Company-operated Restaurants, we are able to achieve certain economies of scale and operational efficiencies that may not be available to a Franchisee operating one Restaurant, as is the case for the typical Franchisee. However, the income from our Company-operated Restaurants ultimately must bear costs of our management team and other corporate office overhead. Actual results vary from Restaurant to Restaurant and we cannot estimate the results of a particular Restaurant. There is no assurance that your Restaurant will generate the same financial results. Your results may vary significantly depending upon a number of factors including, among other things, the location of your Restaurant, competition in the market, the quality of management and service at your Restaurant, economic conditions, your ability to market your Restaurant and your level of commitment and effort. This financial performance representation is provided as a reference only and is not intended to be used as a statement or forecast of earnings, sales, profits, or the prospects or chances of success that may be achieved by any individual franchised Restaurant. Other than, this preceding financial performance representation, we do not make any financial performance representation. CAUTION – AS A CONSEQUENCE OF THE FACTORS DISCUSSED ABOVE, AND OTHER VARIABLES THAT WE CANNOT ACCURATELY PREDICT, A NEW FRANCHISEE’S INDIVIDUAL FINANCIAL RESULTS ARE LIKELY TO DIFFER FROM THE RESULTS SHOWN ABOVE.
