Going back to our roots
Villa Italian Kitchen opened its inaugural international location, a Villa Pizza, in Naples, Italy, in 1996. Initially, our expansion in Italy was primarily focused on the city of Naples, where our roots are deeply entrenched, but over the years, we've grown to encompass nearly 10 locations spread across three distinctive regions within the country. Our presence in Italy, the very homeland of pizza and pasta, has proved immensely successful, with our restaurants strategically positioned in some of the finest centers the country has to offer. In 2019, we ventured beyond the traditional Villa Pizza concept by introducing the first non-Villa Pizza establishment abroad under the brand Green Leaf's, offering a diverse menu of made-to-order salads, healthy sandwiches and snacks, thereby extending our well-established business model to cater to a broader range of tastes and preferences.
