Marco’s status as one of the top pizza franchises in the U.S. has been validated again. Entrepreneur magazine just released its list of Top Brands based on analysis of data from its annual Franchise 500® ranking, on which Marco’s was ranked No. 25 in 2018.

“The ranking was determined by taking the companies that applied for this year’s Franchise 500 and analyzing factors such as social media followers, system size, number of years in business, number of years franchising, and overall reputation—and looking at how they all combine to form lasting relationships with fans,” Entrepreneur wrote.

How we stand out

Our Hello Primo℠ brand positioning, which reaffirms our dedication to producing the best delivery pizza money can buy while still providing value to our customers.

That commitment has helped us open more than 900 locations, with plans to open our 1,500th location by the end of 2020.
