Russo's Coal-Fired Kitchen expands Middle Eastern presence
Chef Anthony Russo, owner and CEO of the company, has launched seven franchise locations of Russo’s New York Pizzeria in the United Arab Emirates and plans to open the first Russo’s Coal-Fired Italian Kitchen and Mozzarella Bar at The Pointe in Dubai next year with franchisee Prime Hospitality. The new restaurant will host the region’s first coal-fired brick pizza oven.
“We are thrilled to be the first restaurant to use a coal-fired oven in the Middle East and to introduce this delicious, unique style of pizza to our growing fan base and new customers in the region,” Russo said. “We are unique because we have cooked authentic family recipes since 1978 and we anticipate that coal-fired pizza will be an instant success in Dubai. We are excited by the expansion of our coal-fired concept across the UAE.”
