Mission, Texas (PRWEB) December 13, 2012
In October, 2012, Russo's New York Pizzeria, known for its authentic Italian food and real New York style pizza, opened its doors in Mission, Texas. After just one week of being open, the local pizzeria produced record sales at 20 percent greater than the average opening week sales for Russos restaurants.
Russos Restaurant Developer David Martinez made sales history with the opening success of his Mission restaurant opening. The Mission restaurant marks the third Russos restaurant that Martinez has opened. Based on his first week figures, he projects more than one million in sales in its first year, a remarkable feat.
In marketing the Mission restaurant opening, Martinez utilized a Russos restaurant nearby and began reaching out to its customer base over a year before the opening. He also hosted a grand opening event for Friends and Family the night prior to the opening, with proceeds benefitting Habitat for Humanity.
Third times the charm! said Martinez. Im very appreciative and grateful for all the grand opening support I have received from founder Anthony Russo and the franchise systems corporate trainers. The sales numbers we achieved in Mission in our first week open were beyond my greatest expectations, and Im so proud to be a part of such a great national brand.
