With a Russo’s franchise, you’ll benefit from over 30 years of success. During that time, we’ve fine-tuned our operations from Point-of-Sale systems to training, to management structure, to marketing, to culinary research. You start off with an experienced mentor on your side. You don’t have to worry about getting all of the systems in place. We’ll help you do that. You just have to run your business, and we’ll train you to do that.


Our training and support system is one of the most comprehensive in the marketplace. Your training begins at our corporate location in Houston, Texas. It is, on average, a 6 to 8-week program, of hands-on training in one of our restaurants. From there we assist with pre- & post-opening and ongoing operation
