Panarottis Pizza Pasta

Full Description

The Brand

Panarottis Pizza Pasta has moulded itself into the perfect family sit-down restaurant – offering Italian-inspired dishes made only from the freshest ingredients. This franchise has grown from strength to strength since founded by Spur Corporation in December of 1990 – today it boasts 68 stores in South Africa and 11 abroad.

In 2012, the franchise introduced Panarottis Pizza Express to its portfolio, a sister franchise which offers customers on-the-go options of its delicious meal offerings. There are 10 Panarottis Pizza Express stores to date, with more popping up just about every month.


There are many reasons one can attribute to the franchise’s huge success, but the one that stands out has to be its child-friendly mentality. Most Panarottis stores boast a kids’ play area, and the kids’ menu offers fun, tasty meal options like the “Dough” it yourself pizza. What’s more, kids get a free lucky packet and colouring-in activity sheets with their meal – proof that Panarottis truly are “big on family”.

Panarottis Pizza Pasta has also become known for its value-for-money weekday specials such as: (Tuesdays) Buy any Gourmet Pizza and get a free Classic Pizza; (Thursdays) Eat as much Pizza as you like; (Sundays) Kids eat free; (Breakfast Special) R24.90 for a Breakfast-on-Pizza or Grilled Supremo.

Another unique benefit to the franchise is its quality promise: Panarottis restaurants use only the finest quality ingredients to prepare great-tasting meals. Their imported pastas are made from 100% Durum Wheat, and they import award-winning pizza flour from Italy. The typical store placement for a Panarottis Pizza Pasta is shopping centres (due to their heavy foot traffic and attraction to families).
