This year, gourmet pizza franchise Paisano’s Pizza will open 11 new locations in the D.C., Maryland, and Northern Virginia areas and will open their first international locale in the United Arab Emirates. Locations in Georgetown, D.C., Leesburg, Fredericksburg, and Lake Ridge, Virginia; College Park, Columbia, Silver Spring, Laurel, and Temple Hills, Maryland; and two locations in Dubai are slated to open throughout the year and will play home to Paisano’s signature high-quality products with the same relentless focus on customer service. 

Paisano’s Pizza, one of the premier food establishments in the Washington metropolitan area, is the leading pizza delivery chain that has expanded by adding multiple company-owned locations and franchises throughout the District and will now open two international locations in Dubai. Since 1997, the restaurant has opened 27 locations throughout the Northern Virginia and Maryland areas, all of which are still operating. Whether customers choose to dine in, carry out, or have their order delivered, patrons can expect friendly and reliable service as well as the freshest and finest ingredients from every location.

Aimed to meet everyone’s individual tastes, the 11 new locations will feature classic menu items ranging from the Chicken Parmesan Sub to the Mediterranean Veggie Wrap and the Bacon Cheeseburger Pizza to the Mozzarella Salad. In addition to Paisano’s extensive selection of Italian dinner entrees, gourmet pizzas, and signature salad entrées, the new locations will also feature restaurant favorites including Cheese Fries topped with bacon, Mozzarella, Cheddar cheese, and ranch and the Spinach Calzone filled with a blend of Ricotta, Mozzarella, and Parmesan cheeses. Those looking for lighter options can enjoy a variety of wraps, subs, and clubs.

Capital Restaurant Group CEO Fouad Qreitem opened the first Paisano’s Pizza in Fairfax, Virginia, less than two decades ago. "We're excited to continue to expand and provide customers with the same quality of food that we've served for nearly two decades," Qreitem says.
