Here we grow again! Sarpino’s USA was named a Top 100 Movers & Shakers by Pizza Marketplace. The annual list identifies and rewards the most innovative and successful companies in the pizza industry. We’re honored and included not only once, but twice!

Top 100 Movers & Shakers

As a Top 15 Menu Innovator, we are carving out a defensible niche in a competitive market. We march to the beat of our own drum. We have forged our own path and take an artisanal approach to delivery pizza-making not found in the big chains.

In addition to our robust menu, our creative and craveable limited time offers received honorable mention. This includes our Pierogi Pizza, Roasted Garlic Chicken Pizza, and Nashville Hot Chicken Pizza. The report also highlighted our Deep Dish Pizzas, which we introduced to our menu in 2022. They have been a great success.

At Sarpino’s USA, we have an unending commitment to menu innovation. We’re constantly seeking opportunities to deliver flavor-packed offerings that will satisfy our customers. These also need to increase sales and profitability for our franchisees. We roll out LTOs regularly, like our new BBQ Pork Belly Pizza, and remain committed to evolve with consumer demand and industry trends while staying true to our Calabrian roots.

Best-In-Class Leadership

Our President, David Chatkin, was also recognized by Pizza Marketplace in its 2023 Movers & Shakers report. He was named among the Top 25 Executives. David has been with our brand from the beginning. He actually brought Sarpino’s Pizzeria to America in 2002 as our original Illinois franchisee.

David has spent the past 20+ years developing Sarpino’s USA into what it is today. Under his leadership, our brand has grown to over 40 units with hyper-efficient systems in place and strong unit-level economics. Our AUVs now average more than $1.05 million. Systemwide labor costs average only 27% (our best performing stores average 24%).

But more importantly, we’ve become a diverse and inclusive franchise system. Several of our franchisees are immigrants, like David himself. The common thread they share is an appreciation for the American Dream and creating equal opportunities – no matter the level. Many of our franchisees are former employees – a fact that we are extremely proud of.
