Pastaio Franchise



Scratch-Made Taste. Turnkey Investment.

Don’t Miss This Opportunity to Establish Your Neighborhood’s Favorite New Gathering Spot with a Pastaio Handmade Franchise.

Traditional Italian Food in a Chic Modern Atmosphere.

Having been brought up in and around professional Italian kitchens, Pasquale and Joanna Lamarra know a thing or two about good food. With previous involvement in over twenty other restaurant ventures, the Lamarras have decades of experience in understanding the necessary components of success. To quote Pasquale, “practice beats theory 100% of the time.” With Pastaio Handmade, they’ve honed the art of delivering truly fresh, homemade taste in a contemporary setting. Their open-kitchen concept allows customers to enjoy drinks while they watch their pastas and doughs being scratch-made, drawing them more fully into the authentic Italian dining experience. This dedication to a superior product served in an upscale-casual bistro atmosphere has made Pastaio Handmade a neighborhood favorite.

A Pastaio Handmade Franchise Offers Scratch-Made Taste in a Turnkey Investment Model.

with a Fresh New Italian Fast-Casual Concept

The restaurant industry is saturated with overdone trends and stale ideas. Getting a concept off the ground and turning it into a successful and sustainable business takes hard work and sound business acumen. Pastaio Handmade’s founders have spent their lives in the industry, beginning as children in their parents’ restaurants. Leveraging their extensive experience, they’ve built a successful brand that presents a sound investment opportunity.

Pastaio Handmade has created a mouthwatering menu that showcases tried-and-true family recipes using the freshest ingredients, made in-house daily in an open-concept kitchen. Each franchisee will have access to the exclusive recipe guide, which can be easily taught to both owners and employees.

With years of industry experience, the founders of Pastaio Handmade have perfected an authentic and memorable casual Italian dining experience. Their three successful prototype locations and streamlined, proven business model offers a turnkey franchise opportunity.

Pastaio Handmade’s fast-casual business model is applicable in a wide range of markets, providing a fresh twist on a consistently popular food service niche.
