Sbarro lends an Italian flavor to that great American innovation, the shopping mall. The company operates and franchises more than 800 cafeteria-style Italian-food stands, across 33 countries. 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. About half of its locations are company-owned, while the rest of the chain is operated by franchisees. Sbarro went through a Chapter 11 bankruptcy reorganization in 2011; the company filed for protection again in 2014, but exited four months later with plans to revamp its stores and the way it makes pizza.
