When Gennaro and Carmela Sbarro emigrated from Naples to New York in 1956, they brought the best of Italy with them. Today, Sbarro carries the same determination and commitment to pride, passion and doing things right. Our hardworking teams roll up their sleeves to prepare pizza right before your eyes, just the way the Sbarro family did behind their original deli counter in New York. Our attention to detail and dedication makes a difference you can see, smell, taste and feel at every Sbarro.
From their vision cast over 50 years ago, the Sbarro family’s time-honored recipes remain the inspiration for our menu. We invite you in to one of our 800 New York pizza places, in more than 40 countries worldwide, for a slice of New York flavor.
Sbarro has a rich tradition of excellence that it shares with its customers, employees and franchise owners. Italian immigrants Gennaro and Carmela Sbarro achieved the dream of owning a successful business in the United States when they opened the original Sbarro delicatessen. Fifty years later, Sbarro is the #1 Italian food franchise in the world.
The Sbarro family remains deeply committed to and involved with the success and continued growth of its company. The same Old World values that helped grow the company from a single location to 1,000 restaurants are still present today. International franchisees will benefit from an operating team that has decades of experience, and spans over 30 countries.
We are now joined by hundreds of franchisees, professional staff and restaurant workers, and we pride ourselves on maintaining a close-knit family culture.
