Our History

A Family Tradition

Sbarro's roots go back to Naples, Italy where for Gennaro and Carmela Sbarro the art of crafting Italian cuisine was a way of life. The couple and their three sons, Mario, Joseph and Anthony, immigrated to America in 1956 to pursue their dream of owning a successful business in the U.S.

That same year the Sbarro family opened their first Salumeria (Italian grocery store) in Brooklyn, which was soon a neighborhood favorite for its exceptionally fresh food and authentic Italian fare, including homemade mozzarella, imported cheese, and delicious sausage and salami.

The quality of the food was surpassed only by the Sbarro family's extraordinary passion for their guests, a people-oriented foundation that continues to translate into the highest standards of guest service today.

The success of the Sbarro Salumeria led to the opening of more locations throughout the New York City area. In 1967, Sbarro opened its first mall-based restaurant in Brooklyn's Kings Plaza Shopping Center, marking the birth of the modern Sbarro concept: delicious, fresh and authentic Italian food in an open kitchen that allowed for fast self service. Since 1967, the King's Plaza business model has been replicated over 1,000 times - helping Sbarro expand throughout the U.S, and the rest of the world.

In early 2007, Sbarro was acquired by MidOcean Partners, a premier private equity firm with offices in New York and London.
