The franchise opportunity

Marco’s Pizza reached an important growth milestone in 2020, opening our 1,000th location. The top 50% of our stores enjoyed an AUV of over $1,059,571* in 2020, based on our most recent FDD. Franchisees have also reported consistent same-store sales growth, thanks in large part to Marco’s investment in the support, marketing and technology needed to operate effectively.

Our skilled leadership team has built world-class brands before, with executive experience at such brands as Burger King, Taco Bell, KFC, Domino’s Pizza, Kraft, Ford Motor Company, Gatorade and more. The team has guided Marco’s to a top position in the booming $46 billion pizza industry, which grew last year despite the pandemic. The pizza industry is predicted to swell to $50 billion within the next two years.
