Get to Know the #1 Quick Service Italian Restaurant in the World
International Franchising History
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 owned by MidOcean Parnters, Sbarro is the #1 Italian quick service franchise.
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 over 1,000 restaurants are still present today. International franchisees will benefit from an operating team that has decades of experience, and spans over 45 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.
