Cannoli Kitchen Pizza has inked eight development deals for franchises including several locations throughout Florida, as well as locations in Alabama, Michigan and Georgia, according to a press release.

“Cannoli Kitchen Pizza has been serving families in Florida for 28 years, and we are eager to bring this concept to other states in the U.S. as we are confident new guests will make visiting our restaurants a weekly family tradition,” Austin Titus, president of Cannoli Kitchen Pizza, said in the press release. “As we scale the brand, we will remain committed to sourcing the freshest ingredients to create a craveable and efficient dining experience. It’s rare to cultivate a restaurant brand with a mom-and-pop vibe that’s consistent across multiple locations, but that’s exactly what we are doing with this pizza franchise.”

The brand already operates four locations in South Florida in Boca Raton, Pompano Beach, Fort Lauderdale and Deerfield Beach, and plans to sign 30 more franchise deals and open five new locations by the end of 2024.

“We’re executing a growth strategy designed to expand the brand and encourage anyone who is interested in owning a pizza franchise to reach out and set up a discovery day with our team to learn more about the perks of franchise ownership,” added Titus. “We’re here to help aspiring entrepreneurs achieve their dreams of restaurant ownership with a brand that people take great pride in being a part of – a brand that has a family-feel and is backed by a powerful support team with years of experience.”

Cannoli Kitchen Pizza is a part of United Franchise Group. The brand originated in Boca Raton in 1996 and has six locations.
