LaRosa's Pizzeria Franchise


Buddy LaRosa was inspired to open his first pizzeria after
the pizzas he made for a church fundraiser using his Aunt Dena's recipe
turned out to be a hit. With $400 and a couple of partners, he opened
Papa Gino's in Cincinnati, Ohio, in 1954. After his partners left the
business a few years in, he changed the name of the pizzeria to
LaRosa's. In 1967, he began franchising.
