Founded by the firm’s CEO chef Anthony in 1992, Russo’s New York Pizzeria & Italian Kitchen is said to use the founder’s original family recipes from Naples and Sicily.

The recipes involve fresh handmade pizza dough, meat sauce and marinara sauce, among others.

So far, the company and its partners have opened 56 restaurants across the US in addition to eight outlets in Dubai, Saudi Arabia and Qatar.

In April this year, Russo’s New York Pizzeria & Italian Kitchen announced the signing of a five-unit franchise agreement to open its restaurant in Qatar.

The firm already launched the restaurant in November ahead of the recently concluded FIFA World Cup in the country.
