Move over Papa John’s, Sarpino’s Pizzeria, now going into its first year of business, is giving Coral Springs some competition.
Located in the Cypress Run Marketplace, Sarpino’s opened last summer and, according to area developer Vasili Bykau, they are planning for 47 additional restaurants in the future.
Established in 2001 in Victoria, Canada, Sarpino’s U.S. headquarters are located in suburban Chicago. As of March, there were 53 locations in seven states and more than 250 worldwide. This growing company prides itself in the art of pie-making by using fresh ingredients, an in-house daily made sauce and hand-kneaded dough that proofs three times to ensure a delicate crispy crust. With over 83 toppings to choose from, they aim to please a variety of palates.
Sarpino’s menu has a wide array of creations like Pizza Santorini loaded with feta cheese, Kalamata olives, slices of gyros, and tzatziki sauce, the meat-centric New York Deli pie, the spicy Buffalo Blue Chicken, Bykau’s favorite—the Alfredo Pomodoro Pizza, and many more. They also feature calzones, sandwiches, pastas, fried mac and cheese, wings, bread sticks, dessert pizzas, cheesecake and tiramisu.
What makes this pizzeria unique is that they offer free delivery, no minimum orders, and they are open 365 days (including holidays) with late night hours expanding to 4 a.m. on certain nights.
Bykau is no stranger to the food business and started with the company in 2004 as a pizza delivery driver in back in Illinois. He worked his way up the ladder and then later relocated to South Florida to operate and develop the new restaurant, which he hopes will make the company’s founder, Gerry Koutogos proud. “We bring the authentic Italian taste of gourmet pizza and convenience along with support to the local community and charities, ” he said.
