Russo’s New York Pizzeria, the authentic New York-style, Italian restaurant and pizzeria franchise concept, is now open at Pearland Town Center. The Pearland, Texas, location adds to the brand’s growing momentum of 47 locations located both domestically and internationally.
“Opening a Russo’s in Pearland just made sense for myself and the brand. I frequent this area and realized we didn’t have a restaurant that compares to our authentic New York–style pizza and Italian kitchen,” says Sam Farouz, franchise owner of both the new Pearland location and the Marq-E Entertainment Complex off Interstate 10. “Every dish on our menu—whether its pizza or pasta—is handcrafted and made with fresh, high quality ingredients. We’re honored to bring the Russo’s difference to Pearland.”
Blending the simplicity of a pizzeria with the freshness of an upscale Italian restaurant, Russo’s delivers a chef-driven dining experience in a fast-casual setting. At 2,900 square-feet, the Pearland location presents a new and unique interior layout that features an open-kitchen anchored by an impressive brick oven at the entrance that can cook up to 16 pizzas at one time. Russo’s opened on July 16 and welcomes the Pearland community to the ceremonial ribbon cutting and official grand opening event on Thursday, September 6 at 10:30 a.m. Russo’s will be celebrating the momentous day by offering the community a free one-topping giant slice of pizza from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Thursday, September 6 and Friday, September 7.
“Sam is such a valuable, longstanding member of the Russo’s New York Pizzeria family,” says chef Anthony Russo, CEO, founder, and the creative culinary genius behind the brand. “His passion for restaurant operations, experience, and commitment to quality makes him a great growth partner. I’m confident Sam will continue to carry on the Russo’s family tradition in Pearland.”
