COLUMBUS, Ohio, July 16, 2019 — Sbarro, known for its XL New York pizza-by-the-slice, recently opened its third restaurant in the Montevideo region of Uruguay.
The newest location is in Portones Shopping Center, one of the region’s largest shopping centers, and is centrally located among premier regional and international retail brands.
“We are excited to be expanding the Sbarro footprint in Uruguay,” said Sbarro Franchisee Armando Torres. “Since our first restaurant opening in the region in 2017, we have been able to provide consumers in the market with what they crave—unique foods that are not only made with the highest quality ingredients—but are reasonably priced and served quickly. While we have been strategic in our approach to our site selections, the Montevideo citizens have readily embraced not only taste of the food, but the convenience of pizza-by-the-slice.”
Founded in 1956, Sbarro is one of the oldest quick-serve restaurant chains in the world, and is known for its Original NY XL pizza, strombolis, and Italian pasta dishes.
Since it first opened its doors in 1956 as an Italian Salumeria in Brooklyn by Naples, Italy-born founders Gennaro and Carmela “Mama” Sbarro, the Sbarro brand has served authentic New York-style pizza and Italian favorites such as Pasta and Stromboli to guests in 600 restaurants and 24 countries worldwide. The restaurant concept is best known for its Original XL New York-style pizza slices made with hand-stretched dough made fresh daily, San Marzano-style tomato sauce and hand-shredded 100% Whole Milk Mozzarella. More than 60 years later, a commitment to authentic, fresh Italian fare and treating guests like family remains Sbarro’s foundation. The global award-winning franchise can be found in retail spaces such as malls, casinos, airports, universities, and travel plazas.
