About Marco's

Founded in Oregon, Ohio, just outside of Toledo, we've been a Slice of the CommunityTM since 1978. We got here by doing things the right way, because when you love pizza this much, that's the only way to do things. Our dedication to quality has made us one of the fastest-growing pizza brands in America, providing plenty of delicious moments and opportunities along the way.

Cut Slices, Not Corners

Naturally, our love of making great pizza started back in the Old World, where our founder, Pasquale “Pat” Giammarco, learned the importance of doing things the right way. Obsess over the details. Take pride in what you make. Appreciate the best things in life—like Ah!thentic® Italian pizza! When he was nine years old, he moved with his family from Sulmona, Italy, to America, and he brought with him a dedication to never cutting corners. Pat founded Marco’s Pizza in 1978, and he’s been cutting delicious slices ever since.

Because when you love something this much, you make sure to do it right.


Our founder, Pat Giammarco’s vision wasn’t just to serve pizza, it was to serve quality pizza—and have people keep coming back for more. It worked! What was one store in the Toledo area is now over 1,000 stores across 34 states with locations in Puerto Rico and the Bahamas. Today, we are one of the fastest-growing pizza companies in America.


We’re looking for people who want to be part of a special company. Our people are the reason we were recently ranked No. 2 in the Pizza category on Entrepreneur Magazine's 2020 "Franchise 500" ranking, and No. 6 in the Largest Pizza Chain category on Restaurant Business' 2020 "Top 500 Chains" ranking. We opened our 1,000th store in 2020 and don’t plan on stopping there. That means we have great opportunities for people like you.
