Marco's Pizza's Italian Roots

Italian-born Pasquale “Pat” Giammarco came to America with his family as a young boy. His father had restaurants, and he, too, wanted to make the kind of fresh, quality pizza he remembered from his childhood.

Overview of the $46B pizza industry

From October 2019 to September 2020, Americans spent more than $46 billion on pizza, according to CHD Expert. During a year in which restaurant sales overall were dramatically impacted by the coronavirus pandemic, pizza sales remained largely consistent, falling just 0.2% according to CHD Expert. You need pizza in your portfolio.

How Marco's stands out

Marco’s Pizza is in the process of exploding onto the national scene. We have been one of the fastest-growing brands in franchising for the past decade, and we have recently reached a tipping point that should help future franchisees grow even faster.
