The phrase “from our family to yours” represents Villa’s corporate identity. But what does it really mean? To us, it’s much more than a slogan. It expresses the warmth and daily commitment to quality upon which Villa Restaurant Group was founded.
The Villa brands are a family franchise. For over 5 decades, our immediate family has worked side-by-side with our extended “business family” to offer personalized food and service to our valued customers. From the first day, our family’s name and our family’s future have depended upon the quality and consistency of our food and service.
That’s why we are so proud of our success. We’ve come a very long way, and our family still stands behind all of our businesses, products and concepts.
While it’s true that Villa Restaurant Group has expanded to include a large portfolio of brands, you can be assured that we’ll always take pride in being a company managed by one great, big family. What does all this mean to you? It means a more personal touch in food preparation, and a more family-oriented approach to supporting franchisees and helping them ensure the success of their families’ businesses and futures.
Proud of where we started, conscious of what got us to where we are today, mindful of the respect and regard that we owe to our customers and the partners who helped us thrive and grow … we will never lose sight of the values that started it all.
Ben & Anthony Scotto
What started in 1964 as a tiny pizzeria next to the Ed Sullivan Theater in New York City has grown into an international organization with numerous QSR franchise concepts and six full-service concepts. From authentic New York pizza and classic Italian fare, to healthy salads and gourmet entrees, Villa Restaurant Group boasts an array of flavors to please most every customer.
Michele Scotto, founder of Villa Pizza, set out to realize his dream by adhering to the time-honored cooking processes and authentic recipes of the Old World. This principle, coupled with genuine hospitality and a strict devotion to preparing products with the freshest possible ingredients every day would become the driving force behind Villa’s success.
