Riko’s Pizza, a US-based pizza franchise concept, has announced plans to further expand its restaurant footprint across Connecticut, Florida, and New York by the first quarter of 2024.

The restaurant brand, which is known for its thin-crust pies, intends to open ten locations across three states by the start of 2024.

Riko’s Pizza founder and CEO Rico said: “After a decade-plus of establishing our brand as a clear leader in Connecticut, the proven pizza capital of the world, we are now on a mission to save the rest of the country from the limited, lackluster pizza offerings available to them.

“Our super-thin crust ‘bar pies’ are cooked to crispy perfection using only the highest quality ingredients, proprietary chef techniques, and revolutionary equipment.

“This combination of delicious food, amazing drinks, and good vibes is completely different from what consumers and the US franchise industry are used to, and we are excited to continue introducing this amazing concept—and with it, actual great pizza—to new markets all around America.”

Additionally, the new franchisees plan to open restaurants in Austin, Texas; Charleston, South Carolina; Long Island, New York; Miami, Florida as well as other key growth markets in the country in 2024 and beyond.

The move is part of the restaurant brand’s strategic plans to expand business throughout the US.

Once opened, Riko’s total number of restaurants in South Florida will increase to three.

Riko’s Pizza partner and COO Luigi Cardillo said: “At Riko’s, we are absolutely committed to ensuring two things: customer satisfaction and franchisee success.

“Further, our partnership style approach empowers our franchisees to achieve success both early after opening and consistently over time.

“As we look towards the back-half of 2023, we are thrilled to officially close out the soft launch phase with so much momentum and begin our strategic expansion throughout the US.”
