Making Moves: FDF Brandz and Famoso Italian Pizzeria + Bar announce Eastern expansion

FDF Restaurant Brandz, parent company of Famoso Italian Pizzeria + Bar has announced major expansion plans for Ontario, the result of a new partnership with Toronto-based franchise development agent, Labreche Group.

Famoso Italian Pizzeria + Bar opened its first location in Edmonton in 2007, aiming to serve up Neapolitan inspired pizzas made with authentic, high-quality ingredients in a fun and vibrant atmosphere. Following their initial success, Famoso put down roots with new franchises across BC and Alberta, ending 2018 with a total of 29 locations in BC, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Ontario.

Following in the footsteps of other Canadian restaurant staples, FDF Brandz CEO, Frank Di Benedetto is taking steps to expand Famoso into the Ontario market. Labreche Group, headed by Chad and Dean Labreche, who actively own and operate Ontario’s only two Famoso locations, will be at the helm of the expansion.

There are 7 new locations slated to open in the west by Summer 2020, in addition to multiple Ontario locations, with two different franchise models. With this expansion in the works, the chain is poised to become a household name in the Ontario market in a matter of years.
