1st place award for airport-based Famous Famiglia

US PIZZERIA CHAIN Famous Famiglia has been awarded first place in the Airport Revenue News industry for Food Operator with 'Highest Regard for Customer Service' and 'Best New Food & Beverage Concept'. The brand has 18 pizzeria locations across 14 leading US airports and Hong Kong International, with more international airport locations expected to be added in the future.

"The air travel industry continues to provide Famous Famiglia with a platform of sustained growth," says Executive Vice President of Corporate Business Development Giorgio Kolaj. "We have been fortunate to have the opportunity to serve air travel passengers and airport and airline employees over the years. We also have the good fortune of developing meaningful relationships with key industry leaders."

Other non-traditional sites in which Famous Famiglia outlets are established include universities, shopping centres, casinos, stadiums, theme parks, military bases, medical centres and convention centres. The company is now looking to add to its 65-unit global presence in the USA, China and Mexico by granting National and Regional Master and Area Development Franchises.

Suitable candidates are required to have a strong work ethic, team building skills and be focused on delivering quality and value. "We have invested a lot of time, energy and resources into building our infrastructure before expanding the brand further," insists Kolaj. "Now we're ready to make that step and seek suitable partners to replicate our success internationally."
