We encourage you to learn more about the performance of our restaurants by speaking with a Rosati’s franchisee. Since we do not know where your restaurant will be located or your level of operation, we cannot predict your results. We are restricted by the Federal Trade Commission and various state franchise sales regulations from providing you with specific profit projections.
The best way to obtain further information is to fill out an Franchise Application Form to obtain a Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD) with the names and phone numbers of our franchisees. Call as many as you’d like. Ask them about being a Rosati’s franchisee and how well they are doing.

In addition, you will receive up to 2 weeks of on-site training with the corporate operations managers. Once completed, franchisees receive regular updates to their training.
