"I purchased my first Gambino's Pizza 13 years ago. Now, I own 3 units, and my kids are becoming second-generation owners, investing in their own franchises."
"I was on my way to a job interview with a medical facility when I stopped by this quaint little pizza restaurant for lunch. After my job interview, I stopped back at that Gambino's Pizza on my way home. I fell in love with that store, and quickly accepted an offer to work for them. Eventually, I purchased this restaurant."
"As our kids have grown, they've had the opportunity to work in our stores. They have a familiar look in their eyes when they're hard at work. It's the same expression I had when I stopped in that Gambino's Pizza for the first time."
- Jana, Owner/Operator, Andover, Great Bend and Hays, KS
