Marco’s Pizza franchisee Stephanie Mosley named 2022 franchisee of the year at International Franchise Association’s Annual Convention 2022 

The air-force veteran and multi-unit owner was bestowed the award recognizing her standout performance and growth as a franchise owner

Marco’s Pizza has announced that Stephanie Mosley, a multi-unit franchisee, is the recipient of the International Franchise Association’s (IFA) franchisee of the year award for 2022. Winners are recognized for their performance and demonstration of excellence within the franchise community. This also marks the only pizza brand to be recognized among 2022’s winners. 

The Paychex sponsored award recognizes franchisees who exemplify at least one of the IFA’s “Open For Opportunity” core pillars: Community, Workforce, Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, and Veterans. Mosley was presented her award during the IFA Annual Convention 2022 in San Diego earlier this week. 

“I’m honored and humbled to receive the IFA’s award and owe everyone who has been there to support me a tremendous amount of gratitude for their hard work, dedication, excellence, and commitment to the business,” said Moseley.  

“This is such a huge achievement for me as it validates that my efforts have not gone unnoticed. My Marco’s franchising experience presents such a unique opportunity to grow a business portfolio and give back to your community in ways that truly matter. Marco’s has been a great blessing in my life and has been a vessel for God to use me to bless others.  

“With three stores open, one opening next month, two more in development to open by the end of 2022, and another four to open from there, this is a remarkable journey and I continue to look forward to an even brighter future with Marco’s Pizza!” 

She credits her Air Force background for giving her the ability to remain steady and committed to her goals, even if things were going wrong. She spent seven years with the Air Force as an intelligence analyst, running a flying reconnaissance aircraft division. 

“As a veteran myself, this is a proud moment – having the opportunity to nominate Stephanie for her tremendous success with Marco’s and to see her win on the big stage among some of the top performers in all of franchising,” said Tony Libardi, co-CEO and president of Marco’s Pizza.  

“Her passion and commitment to Marco’s is simply unparalleled. From being the first to volunteer and pilot new initiatives, to taking on additional leadership roles, to embracing our People-First approach to business, Stephanie has proven herself as a standout performer with a track record of excellence which has set the foundation for continued growth and opportunity.  

“With Stephanie and others, Marco’s continues its long history of providing specific franchise purchase incentives to support both veterans and first responders.” 

With three locations to her name already, Mosley already has her eyes set on 10. Her next and fourth location is due to open in downtown Newport News in April.
