Martinez will help represent the brand as it kicks off 2015, which has included the opening of the company’s twenty-first Houston area location in Spring, Texas.

Currently, there are 20 Russo’s Restaurants in development. Additionally, Russo’s New York Pizzeria has just signed two agreements in the UAE, bringing its total to six in the Middle East.
