Named America's Most Loved, Most Trusted Pizza Brand in 2019

We’re proud to be opening our 1,000th location soon and have been named the Most Loved, Most TrustedPizza Restaurant Brand by consumers, according to the 2019 Harris Poll EquiTrend® Study.

Our quality stands out. Our top pizza franchise opportunity does, too.

Marco’s is the only Top 10 pizza franchise founded by a native Italian. Pasquale “Pat” Giammarco, who remains a multi-unit Marco’s franchisee, wanted a pizza place that did things the way he remembered them as a young boy growing up in Italy.

That means every pizza is made by hand every day with fresh ingredients that are never frozen. We still use the same proprietary sauce, a Giammarco family recipe. Our buying power and vendor relationships allow us to keep costs down while never sacrificing the quality that distinguishes Marco’s from the rest of the pack.

It’s that quality that has consistently driven customers to Marco’s since we opened our first location in 1978 in Oregon, Ohio. It’s that quality that has fueled our exponential growth in recent years.

We have nearly 1,000 units nationwide, and despite the challenges of 2020, our brand continues to gain momentum and garner attention for our swift growth, our experienced and compassionate leadership, and our solid franchise support.

Top-rated pizza franchise

We are proud to be ranked among the top pizza franchises in Entrepreneur’s Franchise 500 ranking in 2020. Marco’s consistently ranks high, a rating backed by our fan-favorite status in the 2019 Harris Poll EquiTrend® Study.

We are in the people business. Our communities need us now more than ever before. We are committed to providing a high-quality service no matter the scenario and continuing to support our franchisees, employees and the communities they serve.”

President and COO Tony Libardi

Everybody has done a phenomenal job across the board, and I couldn’t do it without them. People love our product, and as long as you can get the team and the operations right, our business will bring great opportunities.

Franchisee Joe Jaros

We wanted to do it right, we wanted steady, sustainable growth, and Marco’s has helped us pretty much every step of the way with that,” says Fairbanks. “There’s so much opportunity out there, and it just seems that everywhere we go, especially the new markets we go into, they just take off so fast because the product is great, the customer service is great and I would just say the sheer amount of opportunity is great.

Franchisee Brian Fairbanks

Why should someone choose Marco’s as opposed to another brand? First of all, we have great pizzas; our ingredients are great. We do the dough fresh. We’re cutting the green peppers, we’re cutting the onions fresh. And that’s got to be the core of why you’re getting into it, because you love the product.

Franchisee Eric Bueter
