Canadian quickservice concept Sarpino’s Pizzeria opened its first location in the U.S. in Phoenix in 2002. In 2005, Sarpino’s USA Inc., a privately held company, took over U.S. franchising from Sarpino’s International, Inc. The U.S. restaurants are almost identical to their Canadian counterparts, though they have updated modern design, use different computer technology and feature more menu items. Along with pizza, they serve calzones, pasta and sandwiches.
