Every Store. Every day. The Italian way.

Among the top 10 pizza franchises in the U.S., 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. Now, we have over 900 stores in 34 states and three other countries. If you’ve ever wanted to own a business that serves food you can be proud of, Marco’s may be the right opportunity for you.

Unlike the largest pizza chains, which have maxed out many of their territories, Marco’s has plenty of opportunities for growth. We’ve expanded rapidly in the past few years, but we’re still looking for more franchise partners to help us carve out an even bigger piece of the $45 billion industry. And our scalable business model has helped many single-store franchisees expand to become multi-unit entrepreneurs.

A business you can be proud of

Americans still want convenient, quick food, but increasingly they care about its quality, too. Marco’s hasn’t had to do a major image makeover for our pizza because we have always focused on serving the highest-quality pizza, using high-quality ingredients, the way we have for more than 40 years.

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 and provide robust ongoing support for you and your team.
