Famoso - Pizzeria & Bar Restaurant Franchise

A chance to bring the authentic tastes of Neapolitan food to your customers and the sweet taste of success to your career.




What makes our pizzas different and special, and why do our guests enjoy coming to Famoso? In the true spirit of Italian cooking, we believe in using authentic ingredients, and preparing them from scratch with passion. We use a highly refined “00” flour that makes a pizza crust that is low in gluten for easy digestion and endless enjoyment.

Our pizza dough is made fresh daily, and every pizza is hand-stretched by trained pizzaiolos, then fire-baked in a 900F bell-shaped forno (oven) imported from Italy.


Although Famoso is known for its Neapolitan pizzas, the Famoso menu also offer hand-crafted Italian pastas, entrees, tapas and our signature salads, sandwiches, and wings, providing guests great tasting options for anytime of the day.


Our restaurants are built to provide our guests a unique, social and casual atmosphere that defines what a neighbourhood pizzeria should be – vibrant, accommodating and inviting for friends and families.


Famoso began in Edmonton AB years ago after visiting Naples, Italy in 2005. The dream of bringing an authentic Neapolitan pizzeria back to Canada soon materialized and it has now grown to 30 locations from BC to AB, SK and ON. With a trajectory to scale even more, this Canadian-owned and operated company offers extensive restaurant and franchise expertise to develop your business.

If you are looking to own a successful local franchise brand that has a high passion for serving high quality food in an inviting and casual atmosphere, then Famoso Neapolitan Pizzeria may be the choice for you.


Famoso Neapolitan Pizzeria is part of the FDF Brandz. Having developed multiple brands with over 200 restaurants, the executive and support team has years of skills, knowledge, and experience in knowing what it takes to operate a successful quick casual restaurant. As a market leader, we continually seek out new and innovative ways to make our restaurant operations more efficient and successful with better throughput, kitchen management, and restaurant design. The Famoso brand has also built high local recognition with guests and gained a following for its delicious and authentic pizzas!
