Tony Roma’s® Expands Latin American Presence with New Restaurant in Peru

Romacorp, Inc., the parent company of Tony Roma’s®, announces the opening of its newest restaurant, located in Arequipa, the second-largest city in Peru. The new location can be found on the third floor of the popular Mall Plaza Arequipa, a destination well-known for its wide range of brands, entertainment, and cuisine, making it the number-one commercial center in the city. This is the second Tony Roma’s restaurant for franchisee Freddy Nossar of Inversiones Gondomar SAC, who successfully launched the Tony Roma’s brand in Peru during 1994.

Arequipa is known as “The White City” for its colonial-style buildings constructed from sillar, a white volcanic stone collected from the three gorgeous volcanoes framing the city. As the second most commercialized city in Peru, Arequipa serves as a cultural epicenter in the Latin American region. The new Tony Roma’s restaurant boasts over 140 seats for guests, more than 3,000 square feet, three TVs, and a full-liquor bar. The Arequipa opening is the latest in a string of international and domestic store openings for the brand, having recently renewed USA restaurant growth with openings in West Palm Beach, Fla. and Denver, CO – the brand’s first USA openings since 2014. This continued growth comes on the heels of Tony Roma’s recent brand transformation, which revolutionized the restaurant environment, service approach and food and beverage offerings with a new innovative menu and a fresh global prototype.
