This article is based on its 2017 FDD. 

Spris Pizza is a full service pizza concept featuring Italian, artisan-style pizzas, paninis, and salads that is committed to the best ingredients

Since 1998, Spris has brought authentic brick-oven pizza to Miami. The fresh ingredients, crispy thin crust, and artisanal approach to food quickly made Spris the place for a casual healthy bite in South Beach

Unlike so many of its competitors, Spris makes pizza the old-fashioned way, letting the dough rise overnight, just like in Italy. Some of their ingredients also are from Italy: Spris’ Italian organic flour from Molino Grassi and olive oil from Costa d’Oro, which make for an authentic dough.



Management Team

Spris is led Graziano Sbroggio and is part of an experienced restaurant group called Graspa Group

Originally from Treviso, Italy, Graziano Sbroggio was born into the restaurant industry as his parents owned a trattoria in his hometown. He has been part of the U.S. hospitality business for over three decades and his restaurant group, Graspa Group, currently oversees eight successful locations in South Florida including a catering and bakery business. Sbroggio brings outstanding tangible and intangible value to Spris’ concept, products and operations on a daily basis. “We knew right away we were on to something special”, says Sbroggio about the original location on Lincoln Road.

As part of their parent restaurant group, Graspa Group, Spris follows its core motto: “We are food people. It’s what we love. It’s what we do.”
