Marco’s Pizza ranked 38 on the 2017 Entrepreneur Franchise 500, our highest-ever ranking and the top pizza franchise on the list.

Rising through the ranks

This isn’t our first time on the Franchise 500; we’ve maintained a consistent presence on the list for more than a decade, and our ranking has improved nearly every year. This year, we’ve reached a new high. We’re not only the best pizza franchise on the list, but also No. 38 among franchises in all categories.

Rapid growth across the country

A major part of our high ranking on the list comes down to the growth we’ve been experiencing as we’ve surpassed 700 units, adding 105 locations in 2016 alone. We’re using that momentum and continuing to grow nationwide.

We currently operate in more than 30 states, and have gained a national presence and brand recognition, but still have space to expand and grow with the right franchise owners. We have plenty of opportunities still available for single and multi-unit development in both established and new markets.

Value for guests and investors

For guests, we’ve got great-tasting pizza coupled with the convenience of quick carryout and delivery options. For franchisees, we have the supply chain and processes in place to provide you with our proprietary ingredients that keep our quality consistent while maintaining simple, scalable operations.

Marco’s is the only one of the top 25 pizza franchises to be founded by a native Italian, and that shines through in our commitment to quality and authenticity. After nearly 40 years in the pizza business, we’re proud of our strong, consistent growth.
