Fastest growing pizza franchise ranks among FBR’s ‘Best of the Best’ listing
A franchise system that works for both franchisor and franchisee is rare enough to be special. At Marco’s Pizza, we were recently recognized for our excellence when we earned a coveted spot on Franchise Business Review’s ninth annual Top 200 Franchises list.
The highly-respected ranking is based on franchisee satisfaction scores, which are compiled from the answers to 33 benchmark questions relating to the franchisee’s experience and satisfaction as well as market area, business lifestyle and other demographic characteristics.
Franchise Business Review, a nationwide market research firm, surveyed 26,000 franchisees with 350 brands, asking them to rank their franchise system in dozens of areas such as leadership, operations and product development, and training and support. All of the brands on the list scored above-average marks for franchisee satisfaction.
Under the leadership of CEO Jack Butorac, Marco’s has developed a high set of exacting standards that apply to everything from the quality of the pizza to the skills of its franchisees. The company’s seasoned team of franchise experts understand what it means to grow a quality brand, and they provide the training and guidance to make sure every franchisee is on board.
“Marco’s has created procedures that allow people with every type of background to easily learn the steps it takes to make a good product and run a successful store,” says Chase Kintz, Area Representative for Marco’s in Denver. “Those are the easy things to learn. what it takes to be successful is commitment, drive, focus and the desire to be your own boss.”
Marco’s grew by 33% last year alone, adding 109 restaurants, and the company anticipates hitting the 500-store mark later this year. The company continues to place quality at the top of its priority list as it has since Marco’s was founded in 1978. Marco’s is the only chain founded by a native Italian, and all their pizzas are created by hand, using only fresh, never-frozen cheeses, top quality meats and toppings and dough made fresh in stores daily.
Prime territories are still available in Denver, Miami and other areas throughout the country. Investors can expect to pay, on average, $350,000 for a Marco’s franchise, with a franchise fee of $25,000.
