Marco’s Pizza ranks highly on both the Top 100 and Fastest Growing Franchises, showing why we’re one of the best pizza franchises for investors

We’re honored to be named to not one, but two of Franchise Gator’s prestigious franchise rankings, coming in at #3 on the Top 100 Franchises of 2017 and #30 on the Fastest Growing Franchises of 2017. Add to those accolades our recent, highest-ever ranking at #38 on the Entrepreneur Franchise 500, and it’s clear that franchising experts see Marco’s Pizza as one of the best pizza franchises around.

The Franchise Gator rankings give further evidence that Marco’s Pizza is one of the best pizza franchises to invest in.

Franchise Gator bases the rankings on a number of factors, including information from interviews and companies’ Franchise Disclosure Documents. As with the Entrepreneur Franchise 500, we ranked higher than any of the other pizza franchise opportunities, a testament to the value we bring to our guests and franchise owners.

Exponential nationwide growth

Our appearance on the Fastest Growing Franchises list is great to see but not a surprise. In 2016 alone, we opened 105 new locations. Marco’s swift expansion has been easy to spot as more of our franchises open across the country, in both developed and new territories.

Even with that rapid expansion, there’s still plenty of room to join the Marco’s Pizza opportunity in prime markets. As our brand grows, the opportunity becomes even greater for franchisees. More and more guests are recognizing that Marco’s offers delicious food that’s a step above competitors in taste and still offers all the convenience of dine-in, carry-out and delivery options.

Delicious, authentic Italian pizza

There are plenty of well-established brands in the pizza delivery business, and it takes something special to break into a market like that. But we have something most of the others don’t: authentically Italian origins and a commitment to using only quality ingredients. Guests have noticed, sales have grown and we’ve expanded to become one of the best pizza franchises there is.

Our high-quality ingredients make for a better tasting pizza, and that brings more guests to our franchise locations.

That’s one thing a lot of competitors forget. The most important ingredient in any pizza business is the food. Get that right from the start, just like we did, and that gives you the space to focus on everything else. Franchise owners don’t just benefit from serving amazing pizza; they also benefit from refined operations and a streamlined supply chain that keep quality and costs consistent. That helps them run a better, stronger business.
