About Us

Founded in 1960, John the Baker is a family style Italian restaurant that is 50 years and three generations in the making. We use only the freshest ingredients to bring our old family recipes to life, like our world famous garlic rolls, delicious pizzas, and authentic pasta dishes. For us, cooking isn’t merely an activity- it’s an expression of love. We pride ourselves on not using any preservatives, or MSG, or even microwaves- and our customers have noticed.

Our founder and family patriarch, John Scinicariello, Sr., taught us how to treat both employees and customers like family. We serve our customers with the same care, passion, and gusto that goes into our own family dinners. Everyone who works here is considered and treated like family. Our company ethics are rooted in old-fashioned values- work hard, be proud of our accomplishments and care for the business.

With that in mind, we would like to share our brand of authentic, Italian comfort food with the nation by offering franchise opportunities.


While there is an ample amount of family style Italian restaurants and pizzerias, John the Baker stands out as a favourite between locals and tourists alike. In only using fresh ingredients we make sure that our food is as accepted by everyone. As our new franchisee, we train you on how you can integrate your business with the local community, so that way you have a solid base of repeat customers.

Our franchisees will become a part of our family. And as with other family members, we want to see you succeed. You’ll have a close relationship and a direct contact with the founder, John Scinicariello and his son Johnny Scinicariello. Each franchisee will be outfitted with a personalised consultant in order to provide assistance before and after the grand opening.


We offer an extensive training program to our new franchisees. We will teach you how to run your very own John the Baker from top to bottom. You will learn our family recipes, how to toss the perfect pizza dough and how to make those delicious garlic rolls. You will learn how to be successful, how to have repeat business. You will also learn our marketing strategies and our secrets for success. Additional training after your grand opening will be made available to you if ever you feel as though you need a refresher. We’re here to help.


We are currently offering two options for franchising:

• A single restaurant with a protected territory of the lesser of five (5) miles or a population of 70,000 people.
• An Area Development Agreement wherein you will purchase the rights to a larger territory or region and build a series of John the Baker restaurants.


Owning a John the Baker franchise affords you one of the greatest opportunities in the food industry to start your own business and become a part of our family tradition. You will be supported in every step of the way through a close affiliation with the founder and a team of business experts. Surrounded by people who are consummate professionals you’ll have access to our extensive operations manual including our delicious family recipes and proven business model that has been 40+ years in the making.

If you are looking for a chance to be a part of a family legacy, but still develop your own entrepreneurial skills, than a John the Baker franchise is right for you.
