About Johnny Brusco's Pizza

Johnny's Pizza was originally started in Syracuse, New York back in 1965. Later, in 1977, two employees by the name of Bruce Jackson and Scott Allen decided to move to Atlanta, Georgia to open their own Johnny's Pizza restaurant. They opened their first store in the spring of 1977 located in Hapeville, GA; a year later they opened their second location on Cheshire Bridge Rd. in Atlanta. By 1994, there were six stores in operation, and Bruce and Scott began work on a new company called Johnny's Pizza Franchise Systems, Inc. Over the past 10 years, Johnny's has successfully grown to 40 stores within the state of Georgia and 3 in the state of Tennessee. Due to the popularity of the name "Johnny's," we had to make a change for doing business outside the state of Georgia. As a result, in 2003, Johnny Brusco's was born as an affiliate company. Johnny Brusco's now has 3 locations in Tennessee, two in Memphis, and one in Johnson City. We have enjoyed great success in the metro Atlanta area and look forward to continuing success as we expand outside the state in the southeast region.
