2022 was great as Sarpino’s USA celebrated one of the most successful years in our brand’s history. With a sharp focus on growth and unit level economics, we signed four franchise agreements to develop 10 new locations in the coming years. Of the agreements signed, two were multi-unit development agreements to bring our first-ever locations to the Miami and Denver metro areas, with the commitment of three and five stores in each market, respectively. The first locations resulting from these agreements are projected to open this year – in Westminster, Colorado and in the Brickell neighborhood of Miami.
Here we Grow Again
“Last year kicked off our aggressive national franchise expansion plan to open dozens of new Sarpino’s USA locations by the end of 2027. We’re happy to report that 2022 was a banner year for our brand, laying a solid foundation for the growth we anticipate over the next five years,” said David Chatkin, president of Sarpino’s USA. “With proven systems and processes in place, a standout concept, and an unwavering commitment to innovation, we look forward to an even greater 2023.”
Additional South Florida Expansion
In addition to development in Miami and Denver, Sarpino’s USA will be expanding its presence in Broward County, Florida this year with a new Pompano Beach location slated to open in October. The brand will also make entry into Palm Beach County, Florida soon, with a location planned for Boca Raton. In 2023, we’re continuing to drive our franchise development efforts where we’re already experiencing great success, including South Florida; Kansas City, Missouri; and other states throughout the Southeast and Midwest regions.
Growth from Within
A true sign of a healthy brand is when former restaurant employees are fueling much of your ongoing success and such is the case with Kateryna Tserkovniuk owning the future Pompano Beach and Boca Raton locations and Said Demirovski spearheading our development in Denver. Tserkovniuk got her start with Sarpino’s USA as a cashier in our downtown Fort Lauderdale franchise, while Demirovski worked for a local multi-unit Sarpino’s USA franchisee in Chicago.
Sarpino’s USA Menu Innovation
In addition to our significant franchise development success in 2022, Sarpino’s USA remained committed to menu innovation, launching limited time offers that drove unit sales and increased franchisees’ bottom line. In 2022, Sarpino’s USA brought back our Roasted Garlic Chicken Pizza, which has been our most successful LTO to date, remaining in the top five pizzas sold weekly for the original promotional period. We also introduced Deep Dish Pizzas to our menu in 2022, paying homage to our Chicago roots. Today, Deep Dish Pizzas account for more than 3% of Sarpino’s USA’s systemwide sales, just months after launching.
Sarpino’s franchisees can expect their initial investment to range from $319,000 to $499,000 depending on the restaurant format and real estate selected. For more information about franchising with Sarpino’s, visit sarpinosfranchise.com.
