Marco’s Pizza is one of the nation’s fastest-growing pizza brands with over 1,04 0 stores and is on track to grow our franchise footprint by more than 10% over the prior year. To continue the explosive growth trajectory, we’ve appointed Keith Sizemore to VP of Development.
Sizemore has over 25 years of experience in restaurant franchising and has been with Marco’s since 2016. Most recently, he was VP of Operations and New Territory Development.
Sizemore is well-versed in the practical requirements to open and own a Marco’s franchise. He and his wife own three franchises with a fourth in development.
“It’s an honor to be promoted to this position and focus on the development of the brand. Being a franchisee, I’ve witnessed our development processes first-hand so I am able to see opportunities and create efficiencies that will help us grow faster with a focus on providing an excellent experience for our franchisees,” said Sizemore.
“Our goal is to become the fourth largest pizza brand in the country and I have full confidence we’ll get there. We have an incredible leadership team and I’m looking forward to playing a role in growing the Marco’s brand to new heights.”
In his new position, Sizemore oversees all aspects of development including franchise recruitment, franchise sales, market planning, architecture & engineering, real estate and construction.
His leadership in franchise development poises Marco’s for continued innovation and more locations to serve the high-quality, authentic pizza our guests crave.
Steve Seyferth, Chief Experience Officer overseeing development, sums it up: “Keith has the right vision for this role, and I anticipate his guidance and leadership will bring us continued growth for years to come.”
