About Sbarro

When Gennaro and Carmela Sbarro emigrated from Naples to New York in 1956, they brought the best of Italy with them. Today, Sbarro carries the same determination and commitment to pride, passion and doing things right. Our hardworking teams roll up their sleeves to prepare pizza right before your eyes, just the way the Sbarro family did behind their original deli counter in New York. Our attention to detail and dedication makes a difference you can see, smell, taste and feel at every Sbarro. Sbarro has over 800 New York pizza places in more than 40 countries, and our goal is to create handmade New York pizza and serve it to every guest as though they are family.

Our Traditions

From their vision cast over 50 years ago, the Sbarro family’s time-honored recipes remain the inspiration for a menu crafted around these principles:


We hand-make our dough from scratch each morning.


We use 100% dairy milk mozzarella, and we make our pizzas fresh all day long.


Our all natural, San Marzano-style tomato sauce is made from tomatoes and a pinch of basil, nothing else.

Our Vision

We believe all food should start with passion, pride, and authenticity, and that it’s made even better with all that’s fresh and flavorful today. We promise to serve traditional New York pizzas and more with a bold New York spirit that has made the Sbarro name famous for over 50 years. Only Sbarro is committed to the timeless traditional of hands-on pizza making and a fearless pursuit of fresh flavor, bringing the best of our Italian roots to the heart of New York and beyond. We want to continue to grow our family and open New York pizza places around the globe as a best-in-class franchise system. We are seeking franchise candidates who share our passion and believe in our vision.
