Riko’s Pizza, a pizza franchise concept famous for its super thin-crust, tavern-style pies, has opened its latest location at 14 North Federal Hwy. in Pompano Beach, Florida, one of the fastest growing markets of South Florida.

The new restaurant features over 3,000 square feet of total dining space, designed with Riko’s iconic rustic-urban décor that incorporates the character of the local community, and a 45-foot-long bar with 22 stools, 14 TVs, and 16 beers on tap. The menu boasts tavern-style pizzas, oven-roasted wings, made-to-order salads and desserts, as well as a large selection of wines and specialty cocktails. The space accommodates large groups, kids’ parties, and other special events and a separate carry-out order section for takeout and delivery.

“Nothing compares to Riko’s Pizza, which is why we wanted to become a part of the brand and the driving force behind bringing it to Pompano Beach,” said Jordan Mintz, Riko’s Pizza franchisee. “When this South Florida community experiences these amazing tavern-style pies — a lost pizza artform dating back to the 1930s and ’40s that Riko’s has completely reinvented — they will fall in love with the incredibly crispy and super-thin crust, high quality ingredients and unique cooking style that consistently create pizza with bold and powerful flavor.”

This grand opening marks Riko’s second South Florida location to open in the past 18 months; located in the Countyline Plaza in the Tequesta community of Jupiter, Riko’s Pizza of Tequesta opened in August 2022. The Company has several other locations planned for the Sunshine State, with franchisees considering markets from Jacksonville to Miami, and Orlando to Naples.
