With many prime territories available, Marco’s is rapidly expanding in towns and cities across the country
There’s definitely a buzz surrounding the Marco Pizza ® franchise these days. Just like we’ve perfected the recipe for a great-tasting authentic Italian pizza, we’ve also perfected the recipe for achieving phenomenal growth — and it’s getting noticed.
Our larger competitors may not have much territory available, but Marco’s has huge opportunity for franchisees to reserve prime locations in high-traffic areas.That’s why a TV news crew in Fargo, North Dakota, couldn’t miss our grand opening celebration there.
“You may have seen a giant blow-up chef standing along South University Drive in Fargo and wondered, ‘What is it?’” says the news report. “He’s there for the grand opening of a new Marco’s Pizza ® location. Marco’s takes pride in making pizza the authentic Italian way. They also have subs, wings and salads.”
Sister TV stations KVLY/KXJB featured a story that night with scenes of an inflatable version of our mascot Chef Marco outside the restaurant and slices of our best-in-class pizza being served inside. The story explained that Marco’s prides itself on authentic Italian artisan pizza, made with fresh, real ingredients. Our dough is made fresh in the stores daily, using flour made from spring wheat grown in Minnesota. Marco’s sauce is made from a hybrid tomato specially developed just for us.
The franchise on South University Drive is one of the 131 new franchises that we have opened in prime locations across the country so far this year.
The television news isn’t the only media outlet in Fargo talking about Marco’s. Fargo Monthly magazine asked Marco’s area representative Joe Deck to reveal the secret behind our growth.
“Deck attributes the company’s popularity to the baked-fresh-daily dough and the four-cheese blend, which he says is the company’s signature, much like KFC’s secret recipe,” the magazine says.
Prairie Business Magazine also noticed Marco’s growth in the region and briefly talked to Joe about it. In the interview, Joe revealed that Marco’s is recruiting qualified franchise owners to open locations in Bismarck, Devils Lake, Dickinson, Jamestown, Minot, Valley City and Williston.
Fargo is indicative of many metro regions, towns and cities where Marco’s is expanding its footprint. Our goal is to have 1,000 locations by the end of 2016, and we have many regions available for multi-unit development.
