Panarottis Pizza Pasta
Panarottis Pizza Pasta was launched in December 1990 when Spur Corporation saw a gap in the market for a quality pizza pasta restaurant with a friendly environment and Italian-styled food made from the finest ingredients. Many years of experience enabled Panarottis to create a dynamic new franchising trend that has developed into a highly recognised brand. Since the first store opened in Tygervalley, Cape Town it has grown into a major franchising success story with 68 outlets nationally and 11 abroad. A slice of Panarottis pizza can be enjoyed as far afield as Namibia and Australia. With the continuing success of the franchise in these countries there are no limits to how big this pizza base could grow!

The Brand

Founded in 1990, Panarottis is South Africa’s favourite Italian-inspired restaurant known for its high quality fresh ingredients and warm, family-friendly environment. Today, you can enjoy a slice of pizza in 95 warm, friendly Panarottis restaurants around South Africa, Mauritius, Namibia and Australia.


We offer a variety of meals for the whole family, focusing on pizzas, pastas and grills. Quality is a key cornerstone of the brand, along with the superb Italian-style meals we love to prepare. We use only the finest selection of award-winning ingredients – imported olive oils, Balsamic vinegar, Parmesan cheese and Danish feta.

Panarottis pizzas are made from imported Italian flour, which has garnered some of the most prestigious awards across the world. We use only 100% Durum wheat pasta, imported directly from Italy.

Offering the same fantastic quality and meals that Panarottis Pizza Pasta customers have come to love, Panarottis Woodfired differs in that our pizzas and select pastas and grills are baked in a wood-fired oven, to give them a unique and authentic flavour.

Drawing on the family-friendly environment, Panarottis also offers a range of delicious menu items for kids to enjoy as well as a fun Kids’ Play Area to keep the little ones entertained, making it an ideal venue for families and kids’ parties.


We offer world-class training and solid support, guidance and expertise from Spur Corporation – the benefit of having 50 years of restaurant franchise experience to back you. As a franchisee, you can look forward to many opportunities for development, growth and profit.
