Why Are We The Best!

Squisito Pizza and Pasta was born when our executive restaurateurs and developers set out to create a fast casual Italian concept that exceeded its competitors in both cuisine and atmosphere.


Squisito® has over 25+ years of experience in successfully serving up classic, Italian dishes made with the freshest, Italian ingredients. With the combination of our handpicked tomatoes from the fields of California, our authentic family recipes for our sauces, and the brand-quality supremacy of Grande Cheese, we promise the best taste experience to each and every guest in every franchise.


Working with each franchise location as a TEAM, we know we can achieve this goal. Why Squisito®? It won’t take you long to learn why we stand out from other Italian restaurants—but here are a few of the key reasons why we have built a concept that will thrive in any neighborhood and why Squisito® is a great opportunity for someone who wants the best!


  • Limited Competition in Fast-Casual, Italian Space
  • Family-Friendly Environment
  • Proprietary Sauces and Family Recipes
  • Catering and To-Go Offerings
  • The Best Italian Food at Family-Friendly Prices
  • Extensive Menu
  • A Team with Years of Experience in Creating Multiple, Successful Brands

Revenue Streams

Squisito Pizza and Pasta takes advantage of multiple revenue streams. Each location roots itself into the community allowing it to maximize the following:


Dine In

Our fast casual dining atmosphere brings together families, businesses, teams, religious communities, and schools. This is the heart of our Squisito Culture.

For the ones who are on the go; on the way home from work, to and from after school events, late night nosh, or simply in a rush, we offer our entire menu to go.



We make it easy for every Squisito location to cater events. Whether it is a business luncheon, after school event, family gathering, etc., we can accommodate groups of all sizes! (Skies the Limit)
