We're not for everyone.If low price is more important than great taste, then Paisano's is not for you. We use Grande Cheese, the finest, most expensive cheese on the market. In addition, we use fresh garlic, fresh meats and 100% pure olive oil which cost more than the powders, mystery meats and grease the fast-food places use. We like to think that parents who care will not settle for just the lowest price. They'll consider the value of fresh ingredients, the benefits of great taste and the pleasure in giving their kids something satisfying.

Paisano's has been operating in Northern Virginia for over a decade. We currently run six company-owned units in Fairfax County. We believe that franchising can only work effectively when you begin with the foundation of a proven, predictable system. That is the primary reason why we decided to develop many of our own Paisano's units over the past 12 years using our own capital. We had to prove that Paisano's can be replicated successfully before we would initiate a dialogue with prospective franchisees. Now that we have initiated our franchising program, we are interested in selecting franchisees that share our vision of delivering quality gourmet pizza and Italian food at reasonable prices in a timely manner.

Paisano's franchisees will receive assistance with the following:

  • Real estate site evaluation and selection
  • Lease negotiation guidance
  • Architectural and construction management support
  • Comprehensive training (On the job and classroom)
  • Grand Opening support
  • Ongoing operational support
  • Marketing support
