Who Is NYPD Pizza

We here at NYPD Pizza have been serving fresh, made to order, authentic New York style pizza since 1996. We opened our first franchise location in 2004. At NYPD Pizza we honestly have a passion for serving true New York style pizza consistently across the United States. With locations operating from the East coast to the West coast, NYPD Pizza has created a network to distribute its proprietary products to maintain our authentic and consistent New York Style Pizza.

We strive to provide customers with only top quality, hand-tossed, made-to-order pizza pies, fresh crisp salads, hot hero sandwiches and classic Italian entrees. Our inviting New York City décor allows patrons to enjoy the ambiance of the mom and pop pizzerias of days gone by. In our franchise system you will only find superior products and the freshest ingredients used in all of our menu items.

NYPD Pizza has been honored to receive over 24 Best Pizza awards on the local and national level. NYPD Pizza was also named one of the "Top 200 Pizzerias" in PMQ Magazine in 2008 and recognized as the 27th fastest growing franchise chain for 2009 in Franchise Times Magazines "Top 55 Fastest Growing Franchisees".

Our History

NYPD Pizza was established out of necessity in 1996 by a transplanted New Yorker who craved an authentic New York style pizza in Orlando, Florida. Founder Paul Russo decided to take matters into his own hands and open an authentic New York pizzeria. He then invited his family and friends along with New York City pizza makers to Orlando to begin the fundamental process. Paul knew that owning and operating the pizzeria business was his calling and the rest is history.

Since arriving on the franchise scene in 2004, NYPD Pizza has dominated the competition and is making an remarkable impression in the pizza industry. We now thrive on the weakness of the major pizza chains by simply offering authentic New York Style Pizza.
