Famoso Neapolitan Pizzeria, based in Vancouver, British Columbia, today announced major expansion plans in Saskatchewan with the opening of three new locations, joining the company’s existing restaurant located in Hill Centre Tower, downtown Regina. The restaurant’s 29th franchised location will open in late fall 2016 on Rochdale Blvd, near Superstore and their 30th location is set to open in Eastgate in early 2017. The 31st location will open shortly thereafter in Lloydminster.
Earlier this year, Famoso Neapolitan Pizzeria was also ranked No. 105 on the 28th PROFIT 500, the definitive list of Canada’s Fastest-Growing Companies, ranked annually by PROFIT Magazine and Canadian Business. The addition of three new Famoso franchises in Western Canada speaks to the popularity and love of the brand among pizza lovers and foodies in Saskatchewan, and moreover, across the country.
“Since we opened up our first - and currently only - location at Hill Centre in Regina in 2015, we’ve received nothing but love from the city.” says Justin Lussier, co-founder and chief executive officer of Famoso Neapolitan Pizzeria. “The community in Regina is great, and so are the restaurant partners we’re working with on these expansion plans. We have the utmost confidence that the management teams we have in place at all three new locations will not only help these restaurants succeed, but also flourish and thrive.”
Currently, Famoso operates in 28 locations throughout British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Ontario.
