The Ynot Way:
Serving Communities Since 1993

Ynot Italian has been a member of the Hampton Roads community for 22 years, and we are thankful for all that our community has provided. Our restaurants are nestled in the neighborhoods in which our families have eaten, played sports, attended school and more! Therefore, we are committed to giving back to communities that have given so much to our families.

Over the years we have made many friends and memories through our participation with non-profit groups such as the The Foundation Fighting Blindness’ “Vision Walk”, Susan G. Komen’s “Race for the Cure”, Special Olympics’ Polar Plunge Virginia, Ghent Business Association, the Virginia Beach Restaurant Association, Wave Church, First Landing State Park, Girl and Boy Scouts of Virginia and more.

After much planning, we launched our very own non-profit organization, The Ynot Educate Foundation. Our mission is to provide educational grants to elementary and middle schools in the region. The Ynot Educate Foundation talks with local school districts and determines which programs are right for the charity participation–including in-store Spirit Nights, event sponsorships and annual donations.

We are also proud sponsors of Hampton Roads’ sports teams such as Great Neck Baseball, Lynnhaven Baseball, Kempsville Pony Baseball, Azalea Little League and Greenbrier Athletic Association.

As the title sponsor for, we are able to partner with local venues such as the Ted Constant Convocation Center and the Sandler Center for the Performing Arts. Additionally, we have established relationships with local collegiate and professional athletic teams including the Old Dominion University Monarchs, the Norfolk Tides and the Norfolk Admirals. Each season we are happy to support both the teams and their hungry fans through our sponsorship and vending options.

Although it is a small token of our gratitude, we are honored to support a variety of local organizations since 1993!
