Sarpino’s USA was named a Top 500 Franchise Brand by Franchise Times most recently. The Franchise Times Top 500 annual list examines trends in the franchising industry. With many of the measures meant to slow down the coronavirus pandemic coming to an end and a sense of normalcy returning, 2021 marked a rebound year.

Top 500 Franchise Brands by Franchise Times Criteria

Those comebacks are reflected across the Top 500 Franchise Brands by Franchise Times, the annual ranking of the largest U.S.-based franchise systems by worldwide sales. This year’s ranking had plenty of variety when it came to performance. Some companies had sales exceeding pre-pandemic levels, while others had increases without a full recovery.

Sarpino’s USA is proud to be included among these brands.

Franchises were recognized for their outstanding performance in areas including financial strength and stability, unit growth, and brand power. Those selected to be on the coveted list were evaluated for factors such as costs, fees, franchisee support, and size. Other factors include growth, brand strength, financial strength, and stability.

Sarpino’s USA Humble Beginnings

Sarpino’s USA’s got its humble start while David Chatkin was finishing his MBA. He decided to become a restaurant franchisee and chose Sarpino’s USA. Since that unassuming start, he acquired the rights to develop the entire U.S. market in 2005. Since then, Sarpino’s USA has steadily been building locations.

We understand that when it comes to flavor, daily chopped fresh ingredients are what makes a great meal. Today, Sarpino’s USA has expanded to nearly 50 restaurants across the Midwest, Southwest, and Florida. While we’ve grown significantly over nearly 20 years, some things have remained constant. Our artisanal approach is just not something you find very often in the big chains or in most independent shops. We cook from scratch, and we’re proud that we get to tell that story to our customers with each order.
