Who Makes a Good Franchise Owner?
The keys to success for a Marco’s Pizza® franchise owner
“Almost half of Marco’s Pizza franchise owners were guests first; 100% of the people in our organization are in our organization because they love our product,” says Bryon Stephens, President of Marco’s Pizza. “If somebody’s on the fence, the first question we ask them is if they’ve had the pizza. If they say no, we direct them to the nearest Marco’s.”
Think how many restaurants and retail chains you eat and shop in. How many times have you thought, “I like this so much I want to do this for a living?”
So what does it take to find success with our franchise? The ideal Marco’s Pizza franchise owner is:
- Passionate. Says CEO Jack Butorac, “I’d rather have someone who has the passion, because that person’s going to make good money.”
- Business-minded. We can teach you the pizza business. In fact, we will teach you everything about the Marco’s methods of making pizza during six to eight weeks in a certified training store. But it helps to have a background in management, even if it’s not in the restaurant business.
- Community-oriented. Like any successful business, Marco’s thrives when its owners are involved in their communities. Marco’s franchise owners work with their local schools, other businesses, sports teams and more. Whether it’s donating to charities, working with Little League or getting involved with churches or Scouts, there are unlimited ways to make your Marco’s franchise an integral part of the place you live in. A business that supports its community, after all, will get community support in return.
- Team players. Marco’s owners are a tight, cohesive bunch who regularly get together at conferences and share best practices.
