About Rosati's Pizza

With over 50 years in operation, Rosati’s is one of the oldest surviving family pizza restaurant business in the United States. Generations of mid-westerners have grown up with the brand and continue to spread its legend to every corner of the country. Still run by members of the original Rosati family, (All 10 members of the board are family!) this is an iconic family brand that has grown organically and carefully with a common sense approach.

With almost 200 locations throughout the United States, the secret to our success isn’t a secret at all. It’s pretty simple: demand. The people who grew up with Friday night Rosati’s pizza in the Chicagoland area now demand this unique flavor and quality and family experience wherever it is they now call home. People call us every day wondering when Rosati’s will come to their area. The truth is no one else is franchising traditional Chicago pizza to meet this demand.

Authentic Italian food matched with authentic, genuine people is the Rosati recipe, and America can’t get enough!

Is Rosati’s Right for You?

In case you haven’t noticed by now at Rosati’s we’re not just a business, we’re a family—a family of people with big dreams and big hearts. After over 50 years of experience building this family we have noticed a few things that help make us a good “fit” for potential new family members:

Past Business Experience

You don’t need to have restaurant experience or franchise experience to fit in around here, but you will need business savvy and acumen. Bring your past business experience, your winning communication skills and your ability to work within proven systems. We’ll do the rest!

Mid-Western Work Ethic

This is not a business for absentee ownership. You’ll have to have that roll-up-your-sleeves attitude and an old-school Chicago work ethic, focus and attention to detail. We’ll teach you everything you need to know to make legendary Chicago pizza.

Family Oriented Folks

Sure, it’s our family name, but this will be YOUR family business. Many of our most successful franchises are multi-generational for a reason. There’s just something about the Rosati’s family culture that works for other families as well.


"I really liked Rosati’s Pizza and wanted to be involved because it had a very good reputation. I also liked the fresh food that Rosati’s serves. Once I met Anthony Rosati and Joe Fiore the decision to become a Rosati’s Franchisee owner was easy."

– Mary Premetz, Owner of Rosati's Pizza in Waukesha, WI
