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. Now, we have 800 stores in more than 30 states and four countries. 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.

At Marco’s, we pride ourselves 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 choosing the quality pizza we’ve built our brand on.

Unlike the largest pizza chains, which have maxed out many of their territories, Marco’s has plenty of opportunities for growth. We have pizza franchises in more than 30 states and four countries, but we’re still looking for more franchise partners to help us carve out an even bigger piece of the $46 billion industry.

Marco’s is a great pizza franchise opportunity for anyone looking for a brand with growth and momentum on its side and strong support for franchisees.

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 we have always 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 pizza franchise, or even several at once, Marco’s may be the perfect place for you to thrive. Click on the research button below to learn more and get started on your next big business adventure.
