Coming off the back of a growth-fuelled 2020, Marco’s Pizza has plans for this year to be its biggest yet.

Marco’s Pizza, the Ohio-based pizza brand with over 1,000 stores throughout the U.S., has announced that it has signed 88 new franchise agreements since the beginning of 2021, and is on track to grow its footprint by more than 10 per cent this year.

Currently, the franchise has more than 200 units in various stages of development. Marco’s Pizza is specifically targeting areas such as Austin, Dallas, Denver, Miami, Orlando, San Antonio and Southern California for expansion.

“Our teams have been busy working to lower unit buildout costs while simultaneously driving higher sales,” explained Tony Libardi, co-CEO and president of Marco’s Pizza. “This, paired with ease of funding, has created an opportune time for both existing and prospective franchisees to grow with Marco’s.”

Part of Marco’s Pizza’s growth strategy focuses on identifying and partnering with experienced multi-unit owners, as almost half of its current network is comprised of multi-unit operators.

“We remained incredibly adaptive during the pandemic – rapid expansion of third-party delivery, new contact-free delivery, and curbside pickup options – and that innovation will continue to serve our network well for years to come,” added Libardi.
