In 1980, Mike and Fouly Frangos turned their passion for food and service into a high quality fast food restaurant in downtown Cleveland. Mike focused on serving people with a smile and getting food to them quickly. Fouly made sure the recipes were exceptional and the presentation of the food was awesome. With their attention to the details and hard work, it didn’t take long for the restaurant to catch on. Rascal House became a “home” away from home for hungry college kids and an office favorite for the working crowd in downtown Cleveland.

After the first couple years in business word got out that Rascal House was a unique place to get high quality food and customers were hungry for it. Even back in the early 80’s, the menu featured pizza, sandwiches, hamburgers, french fries, salads, etc. People loved the variety but more importantly they loved being able to get it all at one place.

Mike knew he was onto something but everything changed when he asked one simple question, “Everyone loves coming here not just for pizza, but the whole menu. What would happen if we delivered everything to them?” Mike started up delivery service, people couldn’t get enough and a different kind of pizza place was truly born.

We’re proud of our history, our reputation and the fact that we’re still a Cleveland hometown favorite. Rascal House has had the privilege to serve hundreds of thousands of Clevelanders, local travelers, sports teams, students and countless others.

“THE VARIETY OF HIGH QUALITY FOOD OPTIONS ALONG WITH OUR PROVEN DELIVERY SYSTEMS HAS MADE US A FOOD DELIVERY POWERHOUSE.”

-Niko Frangos

We’re now asking ourselves, “how can we make it better?” The answer is simple. We’re taking the Rascal House experience to more neighborhoods! We’re committed to people; our customers, our crews, the communities we serve. That’s why we’re turning our success story into an exciting franchise opportunity. It is our goal to continue to bring the same quality products, service and opportunity to people and cities nationwide.
