Our unique formula has lead to lower-than-average labor costs. Our fresh, from-scratch recipes produce high-quality meals while maintaining lower-than-industry-average food costs.This variety of clientele is the reason that Russo’s New York Pizzeria outperforms its competition.
Our recipes, our ingredients, our artisanal, thin crust pizzas, all speak to our brand promises to serve our guests the freshest ingredients sourced directly from dairy farmers, tomato growers, and olive oil producers. We then take use those fine, natural ingredients and use them in our kitchens each day to prepare all our homemade sauces, salad dressings, pizza dough, fresh pasta, and more.
The preparation of each authentic recipe shines through as we remain true to serving our rich and flavorful Italian cuisine.
It starts with genuine, hand-tossed dough made in house from 100% premium durum wheat flour with no additives or preservatives. Next, the sauce. Vine-ripened tomatoes direct from California are hand-crushed, simmered and enhanced with a generations-old Russo family recipe. Then, we add 100% pure, fresh mozzarella cheese that comes from a small dairy farm in Wisconsin.
Growing the bottom line comes naturally with our unique revenue blend. With decades of industry experience, we deliver higher than-industry average ticket sales and lower food costs all while maintaining the highest food quality and profitability.
