Samuel Mancino's Italian Eatery

Pride resonates throughout the Samuel Mancino’s family. Once you taste our products, hear our customers, and see our systems in operation you’ll understand why.  

Keeping Customers Loving Us

The Samuel Mancino’s name is well-known throughout communities as a reliable source of quality and value, particularly noted by our famous oven-baked grinders and a welcoming environment that combine to create a memorable dining experience.


Our established success is rooted in three cornerstones that we uphold with the same devotion we have used to craft our secret recipes and blend our homemade dough for more than two decades.

These three cornerstones are:

  1. Aim to maximize our franchisees’ return on investment
  2. Support and value our franchisees to optimize their ability to succeed
  3. Keep our customers enthusiastically saying “I love Samuel Mancino’s!” by offering quality and care at affordable prices

About Us

Years of development, planning, and perfection have gone into creating our famous grinder sandwiches, gourmet pizzas, and other Italian-inspired cuisine made only from the finest products. Our preparation techniques involve precisely weighing, portioning, and blending ingredients to our customers’ satisfaction. The food is then served in a comfortable, fast-casual environment that welcomes our customers as family.

Since 1994, we have built a strong family of successful and committed franchisees with numerous locations throughout the Midwest and beyond. As we grow stronger, we continue to look for new owners who share our passion for delivering quality and care to customers. However, our intention is not to be the largest franchise that seeks fast growth and profit at the expense of its people. Our intention, instead, is to cultivate a franchise that achieves discerning quality and care, so we may be proud of its every aspect. A key part of upholding such a culture is selecting the absolute best franchisees who will invest in our system with a spirit of desire and enthusiasm.

Maximizing Your Return

For you to reap the largest reward from your investment, we offer an effective, streamlined, and consumer-oriented system, while providing the means for you to manage your financial, operational, and strategic responsibilities with greater ease.

Minimizing Costs

We continually seek avenues to improve your operational efficiencies and minimize costs without sacrificing customer satisfaction, including:

  • Comprehensive systems and operational manuals to guide a smooth, profitable operation
  • Personal operational and strategic guidance to avoid costly mistakes as a result of poor decision-making or inexperience
  • Supplies from major food and beverage distributors at competitive prices through volume purchasing power with vendors and national account arrangements at the corporate level
  • Maximized product usage with minimized waste and storage requirements by using ingredients in more than one menu item

Owning and Operating Your Samuel Mancino's

As a Samuel Mancino’s franchisee, you will have access to our proven systems and methods of managing and monitoring a profitable business model including:

  • Inventory control
  • Purchasing
  • Sales reporting
  • Product preparation and presentation
  • Personal guidance and training

To optimize unit performance, however, there are certain operational responsibilities you must adhere to:

  • Follow the operational manuals and systems established by the franchisor
  • Hire and train employees per franchise guidelines
  • Track and report finances timely and accurately
  • Market through advertising, public relations, and other means to increase awareness

Supporting and Valuing You

We believe that successful business and restaurant managers, regardless of previous professional experience, must feel valued and be supported with the right resources to succeed. As a result, we provide training, guidance, appreciation, and other support mechanisms to prompt mutual growth.
