“When a company moves as fast as we do, it’s good to hear both from the industry and from our guests that we’re on the right track,” says Marco’s Pizza President Bryon Stephens. “We will continue to invest significantly in our mission to be the pizza of choice, an employer of choice and the partner of choice in every local community we serve.”

Authentic Italian pizza sets us apart

The pizza industry generates $46 billion in sales annually. There is plenty of competition, so it takes something really special for a brand to rise above the others. For Marco’s Pizza, one of our many special ingredients is our brand identity as the only one of the top 25 pizza chains to be founded by a native Italian.

Our commitment to great-tasting, authentic Italian pizza brings guests in and keeps them coming back, which has led to six straight years of increased same-store sales. The Entrepreneur rankings just confirm what our franchisees see every day in their stores: guests love our pizza and keep buying more of it. That makes now the perfect time to invest in our top-ranked pizza franchise.
