Everyone Deserves Great Pizza
We are on our way to making that happen!
Lawyer, politician and entrepreneur Eddie Lucio opens his first Romeo’s Pizza location in Texas at the end of 2020. Lucio signed on for 40 units in Texas with plans to build them out over the coming years. His long-standing love for Romeo’s Pizza and the quality time he spent there with his family convinced him to join the Romeo’s family as a franchisee.

Romeo’s Pizza started in 1994 as a mom-and-pop shop in Medina, Ohio. We began franchising in 2006 after winning multiple national pizza awards and taking third place on the Food Network’s Pizza Challenge. Over the next few years, the brand continued to grow and was purchased by multi-unit franchise owner Ryan Rose in 2016, and Mike Rao joined in 2020. Today, we have more than 50 open and operating locations nationwide with another 170 units sold or committed to.
We are looking to continue our growth nationwide and deliver great pizza with a purpose.
