Authentic Italian Pizza Franchise
Own your own Marco’s Pizza® Franchise
Among the top 25 pizza franchises in the United States, only one was founded by a native Italian: Marco’s Pizza®. Pasquale “Pat” Giammarco immigrated to America with his family at 9 and started his first pizza restaurant in 1978 in Toledo, Ohio. If you’ve ever wanted to own a business that serves food you’re proud to put your name behind, Marco’s may be the right business opportunity for you.
Marco’s prides itself on authentic Italian artisan pizza, made with fresh, real ingredients and dough made in the store daily. At a time when 91% of Americans eat pizza at least once a month, more people are increasingly choosing the quality pizza that is synonymous with the Marco’s name.
Unlike the largest pizza chains, which have maxed out many of their territories, Marco’s has plenty of opportunities for growth. We’re in 36 states and three countries, and we’re aggressively planning to carve out a bigger piece of the $40 billion pizza industry.
Americans are growing choosier about what they feed their families, and they want their convenience foods to be high quality, too. Marco’s hasn’t had to do a major image makeover for its pizza because Marco’s has always been focused on serving the highest quality pizza using the best available ingredients.
That mission, combined with our unique capacity for tremendous growth, means you can get in on a ground-floor opportunity with Marco’s. Opening a Marco’s Pizza® is relatively inexpensive compared to the cost of starting other casual dining restaurants, and owners don’t need prior restaurant experience. We educate all our franchise owners on everything they need to know.
If you’re dreaming of owning a business, or even several at once, Marco’s may be the perfect place for you to thrive. Click on the research button below to get started on your next big business adventure.
