“As a pizza operator for over 50 years, Villa is proud to invite guests to enjoy our popular New York style pizza and famous Stromboli at our new restaurants in Tuttle Crossing Mall, Riverchase Galleria and Park Meadows Mall,” says Adam Torine, executive vice president of development, Villa Enterprises.
Villa Italian Kitchen features Neapolitan and pan pizzas handmade with fresh dough, 100-percent whole milk Mozzarella and homemade sauce. Villa offers large to-go orders and catering for pizza lovers, families, or events.
Starting with its first pizzeria in New York City 50 years ago, the company’s Villa Italian Kitchen flagship brand now has more than 270 locations worldwide. Over the past several years, Villa Enterprises has focused on multi-unit opportunities, expansion of management services, the creation of new restaurant concepts in response to market demand and international growth with a focus on the Middle East and Latin America. Today, the company’s portfolio has grown to include more than 400 quick-serve restaurants in malls, airports, casinos, and other high-traffic locations.
Villa was founded 50 years ago, and built its business on the strict loyalty to authentic old-world recipes that Michele Scotto brought with him from Naples, Italy, in 1964. From the first pizzeria that opened in 1964 next to the Ed Sullivan Theater on Broadway in New York, to their new restaurants in Tuttle Crossing Mall, Riverchase Galleria, and Park Meadows Mall, that commitment to quality food and genuine hospitality is still the hallmark of Villa.
