VANCOUVER — Famoso Pronto, a contemporary fast-casual pizzeria concept, has opened its first location in Nisku, Alta., north of the Premium Outlet Collection Edmonton International Airport (EIA).
Inspired by traditional trattorias in south central Italy, Famoso Pronto offers guests high-quality, authentic Italian cuisine — such as its hand-tossed authentic Neapolitan pizza — in a fast-paced atmosphere. Other menu items include Italian-style sandwiches, share plates and tapas, wings in eight savoury flavours and fresh salads with signature dressings.
The concept is all about flexible service styles that work with a customer’s schedule. Guests can choose from a casual dine-in area with fast, efficient counter service, takeout, online ordering and pick-up or delivery. Famoso Pronto also offers catering.
“We are excited to launch Famoso Pronto, an evolution from our current Famoso Pizzeria, catering to shoppers and locals in the EIA area who want to enjoy the unforgettable experience of a neighbourhood trattoria right in their local community, while still getting the same great Italian-inspired cuisine, they’ve come to expect from Famoso,” says franchise-restaurant developer Frank Di Benedetto, CEO/owner of FDF Brandz. “This model of Famoso Pronto is a great fit for the EIA location, attracting busy shoppers who are looking for a quick dining solution that does not sacrifice food quality.”
Situated north of the Premium Outlet Collection Edmonton International Airport, the new 1,300 sq.-ft. eatery seats up to 24 guests and is open from 11:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily.
“Famoso Pronto also offers takeout and delivery for guests who want to enjoy authentic Neapolitan pizza in the comfort of their home or nearby hotel room, as well as catering for lunch and dinner meetings, seminars, conferences or staff parties…offering an authentic Italian option that is fresh, affordable and delicious,” says Dave Housman, franchisee owner of Famoso Pronto.
