One of America’s fastest-growing pizza franchise chaines seeks New Mexico entrepreneurs to open businesses
New Mexico’s job market is hot right now — and so is its pizza. Marco’s Pizza® is looking to partner with entrepreneurs who are interested in bringing fresh, Ah!thentic Italian-style pizza to the Land of Enchantment.
Having experienced a large population boom recently, New Mexico now has more than 2.1 million people. Job growth for the state is up 1.2 percent, making it a great spot for new businesses like Marco’s Pizza. A U.S. Department of Agriculture study of American eating habits found that on any given day, 13 percent of the U.S. population is eating pizza. In New Mexico, that means 273,000 people eat pizza every day; Marco’s Pizza is ready to grab a big slice of that market.
Marco’s Pizza franchise seeks friendly, passionate entrepreneurs in New Mexico
Marco’s Pizza seeks friendly, passionate entrepreneurs who are committed to making their franchises welcoming and inviting. We’re looking for people who believe in friendly customer service and who are passionate about our fresh, delectable pizza.
“Our franchisees come from a remarkably wide variety of backgrounds. But there’s a common thread among our franchisees — passion for the Marco’s product. Almost half of them were Marco’s consumers first. They fell in love with our product,” said Cameron Cummins, Chief Development Officer for Marco’s Pizza.
The investment required to start a Marco’s Pizza franchise is typically about $350,000. The pizza franchise is looking for people who have a net worth of $350,000 and a minimum liquidity of $100,000.
How does Marco’s Pizza franchise support its owners?
Previous restaurant experience is not necessary to open a Marco’s Pizza. Marco’s Pizza veteran executives help franchisees throughout their careers with everything from making the products to managing the business.
Franchisees learn all about creating the perfect pizza during a six-week training in the company’s state-of-the-art kitchen at Marco’s University. Franchisees also learn about training staff, managing finances, and implementing effective marketing practices.
Marco’s Pizza growth outpaces pizza industry
Marco’s has enjoyed significant growth in recent years and is on pace to have 1,000 restaurants open by the end of 2017. The dynamic pizza franchise rolled out 113 new franchises in 2015 and has recently announced plans to open 150 more locations in 2016.
Given these numbers, it should not come as a surprise that Marco’s Pizza has the fastest unit growth, according to Nation’s Restaurant News, which named the beloved pizza franchise as part of its Second 100 List. That list analyzes businesses that are smaller but are focusing on growing around the nation.
