Russo’s New York Pizzeria & Italian Kitchen will be opening two new locations this spring.

The Houston-based fast-casual pizza brand is set to open one location in Katy and one in Richmond, according to a Jan. 5 announcement.

The Katy restaurant will open at 22723 Morton Ranch Road, while the Richmond location is still in the works, according to the announcement.

Franchisee Carmen Maria Torres will own and operate the two restaurants.

“My husband and I are based in Mexico City, but spend part of our time living in Houston,” Torres said in the announcement. “We’ve been Russo’s customers for years and love the food, service and the entire Russo’s concept and franchise model. We were initially attracted to the idea of owning a Russo’s because of the access we get to Anthony Russo instead of having to deal with a large corporation and not knowing who you’re doing business with.”


The Katy location will open in a new fast-casual footprint in a 2,200-square-foot space with an open kitchen design and large outdoor patio, with a restaurant capacity near 120 guests. In addition to its typical offerings, the restaurant will offer new menu items, including truffle garlic knots, prosciutto burrata pizza, truffle mushroom pizza, truffle burrata gnocchi and bruschetta, served alongside craft beer and Italian wines. www.russosfranchise.com
