Russo's New York Pizzeria Owner To Visit U.A.E.

According to QSR Magazine, “Anthony Russo, owner of Russo’s New York Pizzeria, will exhibit at the 2010 Gulfood Conference in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, the region’s largest and most important industry event. The food, drink, foodservice, and hospitality exhibition will take place February 21-24, taking up one million square feet of dedicated space at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Center.”

“The 2010 Gulfood Conference will be the biggest event in the show’s history leveraging its regional influence to highlight the latest trends, innovations, and developments in the industry. It’s a one-stop-shop for the foodservice professional, offering personal interaction between buyers and sellers, on-the-spot deal making, and the chance to sample food from top-notch chefs — including Anthony Russo and New York Pizzeria, who will be serving the company’s signature extra-large, 28-inch party pizza. The pizza chain has an optimistic agenda for business development in international markets. With the logistics already in place, Russo plans on selling area development in the Middle Eastern market resulting in numerous franchise opportunities. “We’re trying to build a global brand and are extremely excited about the opportunities that Gulfood will bring,” Russo says.”
