Any restaurant that sells pizza in your market will be considered a competitor. However, Santucci’s is most often identified as a casual Italian restaurant for sale that is best known for our Signature Square Pizza.

Our menu incorporates a wide range of items from appetizers and salads to pasta entrees as well as pizzas, flatbreads, and strombolis. We offer items that are traditionally ‘kid-friendly fare’ with a twist of quality in all of our proprietary family recipes. An entire family can come dine with us and each person can order just what they want for dinner. When a family wants a dining experience for everyone, not just pizza, Santucci’s stands apart from the competition.


The investment in a Santucci’s low-cost pizza franchise opportunity can vary widely from one location to another.  Market rents, condition of the premises and Landlords willingness to contribute to the build out all come into play.  The full details are available in our Franchise Disclosure Document.  Ask us how to receive this document by calling us today.
