We have been leaders in the sales category for over 65 years.

Franchise LaRosa's Pizzeria

Sometimes inspiration comes from ordinary things. For founder Buddy LaRosa it was his Aunt Dena's recipe pizza that he made for the annual summer festival at his family's San Antonio Italian Catholic Church in Cincinnati in 1953. It was a huge success. 

After that, he collected $400, and with few partners, he opened "Papa Gino's"- his first family pizzeria. Very fast it became a favorite place to hang-out for families and high school kids. A few years later Buddy bought out his partners and renamed it LaRosa's.

To this day, LaRosa is family owned and operated. Buddy’s sons, Mike and Mark, use Buddy’s motto: “Good, better, best, never let it rest; until your good is better and your better, best” to constantly improve the guest's experience. That is the key to thriving all these years in the restaurant business.

Some of our Basic moments:

  • Family Recipes - since the beginning we have always served real family recipes. Pizza sauce from Aunt Dena, Grandma Mary’s spaghetti sauce, meatballs are Grandma Josephine’s. Mark LaRosa carries on the family recipe tradition and trained at the Culinary Institute of America.
  • Delivery- LaRosa began delivery to homes and businesses long before today’s hot trend in 1984. Everything on the 49 items menu can be delivered 
  • One Number - guests can call to order for pick up or delivery in all LaRosa’s service area. All calls to the Guest Service Center focus on taking orders correctly and quickly.
  • Online App - For orders, we also have site and our own mobile ordering app for Apple and Android devices.

Since 1967 LaRosa has been franchising, now it has grown to hundreds of neighborhoods in Cincinnati, Dayton, Central Ohio, Northern and Central Kentucky, and Southeast Indiana. Now we want to grow in West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Virginia, and North Carolina.

Testimonials

Family Atmosphere

Recommends
I worked at LaRosa's part-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Working there was like being a part of a family, and I honestly looked forward to coming to work in the mornings

Cons

food comes out of the kitchen slowly sometimes and servers can't control that, therefore guests can become irritated which affects tips

Great place to work at if you are a student

I worked at LaRosa’s while saving money to re-enter college, and they worked with me to provide me with enough hours to be able to save the money I needed. Overall, it’s a busy restaurant with many customers making purchases during peak hours, so the busiest time to work is dinner time. Great place to work though.
Pros
Flexible scheduling
Cons
Many employees disliked certain managers which created an non-energizing work environment

Good money

Cons

Management can be a hassle to deal with and the cook's sometimes are not the best
