Sbarro lends an Italian flavor to that great American innovation, the shopping mall. The company operates and franchises more than 1,000 cafeteria-style Italian-food stands. Serving pizza, pasta entrees, and salads, Sbarro's units are typically found in high-traffic locations, such as malls, airports, and toll-road rest areas. Roughly 500 of the locations are company-owned, while the rest of the chain is operated by franchisees. Sbarro went through a Chapter 11 bankruptcy reorganization in 2011 and the company is now owned by institutional investors.
