Once You're in, You're Family.

More than 60 years ago, Mama Sbarro knew that good food makes great connections. Today, we believe our business still rests on relationships—especially with our franchisees. It’s why our international operators get some of the best support available in the QSR franchise space.
Training – Get educated on Sbarro signature recipes, products, systems and essential tools with programs provided by our certified Operations leaders. Each one is designed to help you operate your business effectively. Then get on-going training on the new products, limited- time offers and rollouts that’ll keep customers coming back.

Design – Collaborate on floor plans, brand-standard equipment, graphics, brand messaging and furniture elements with the Sbarro design experts.

Real Estate – Take advantage of our tools for proper site selection and evaluation. We’ll review your potential locations and provide approval guidance too.

Marketing – Capitalize on 60+ years of Sbarro brand awareness! Tap into international marketing initiatives to support a marketing calendar that’s right for you, plus promotions built to drive your transactions and sales.

Purchasing – Ensure the highest quality products at the most competitive prices for your franchise. While each country’s supply chain needs are unique, we’ll support you to secure products that meet our specifications—either via the U.S. or localized sourcing networks. These products include food, packaging, small wares and produce.

Operations – Increase transactions and sales growth with the Franchise Director of Operations dedicated to continuous improvement of your store’s financial health. Your Director will advise you on restaurant operations, facility and reinvestment strategies and make  recommendations about pricing and marketing. You’ll be counseled on human resources practices like recruitment, retention, development, organizational structure and training, plus capital spending, long-term reinvestment plans and growth strategies. We focus on your store’s operations so you can overdeliver on the things that matter most to customers—food quality, customer service and cleanliness.
