Ciao! (Hello!)

My name is Frankie DiCarlantonio and I am the Director of the Scaffidi Restaurant Group of Steubenville, Ohio. In my position, I will be serving as your Development Representative through the exploratory process and (hopefully) your development of your own Scaffidi's Gnocchi Nook! 

First, please use the link below to submit your inquiry into the exploratory process of opening your own Gnocchi Nook. The form will ask for information such as your contact information, approximate net worth (to review for development and credit opportunities), and some questions pertaining to your knowledge of the Foodservice Industry. Don't worry if you don't have any experience in the Foodservice Industry - we didn't either when we started, but it is helpful for us know to where we are starting!

Second, once received, I will be in contact to begin the process of signing our Non-Disclosure Agreement. This protects both you and the Scaffidi Restaurant Group so that information shared between us is under an agreement of confidentiality. 

Third, we will enter into the process of exploring this opportunity with you, including investments required, the requirements and desires of both you as the Franchisee and the Scaffidi Restaurant Group, and answer any questions that you may have. If you feel that this is something that you wish to move forward with, we will enter into our future agreements and be on the way to a successful, profitable relationship. 

I am excited to be working with you already!

All The Best,

Frankie DiCarlantonio

Director, Scaffidi Restaurant Group
