Did you know that the global pizza market will increase by $51.28 billion from 2021 to 2026 at a CAGR of 6.11%, according to a Technavio report, which said that the big chains are fueling much of that growth. But there are still up-and-coming brands along with mom-and-pop restaurants that are continually putting out some of the best pizza on the market, which is why Pizza Marketplace developed its first ever “Top Pizza Brands to Watch” list. A panel of judges narrowed down the applicants, who nominated themselves, by reviewing their use of technology, menu innovation and future growth plans.

And we’re honored and proud to say that Sarpino’s USA made the 2023 class of “Pizza Brands to Watch.”

Top Pizza Brands to Watch

Since entering the U.S. in 2002, we’ve developed a reputation for combining old world Italian authenticity and American ingenuity. Our delivery- focused concept performed exceptionally well during the pandemic and it has continued to perform well in the years since. In fact, Sarpino’s USA has experienced double-digit sales increases in the past few years and systemwide AUV is almost $1.1 million.

Our Illinois-based brand, with 43 locations across the South, Midwest and West, offers more than 60 specialty and gourmet pizzas, plus calzones, sandwiches, pastas, salads, wings, appetizers, and a vegan menu. We try to make almost everything from scratch, yet we’re able to keep systemwide labor costs at 27% because of implementation of technology and innovation inside and outside the kitchen.
