Entrepreneurs Seek to Fill the Need for Ah!thentic Italian Pizza in Cincy, OH Area, Plan to Open 35-40 Marco's Pizzas, 800 Potential Jobs; First Opens

Cincinnati, OH--(Marketwire) - Three veteran franchisees and their company Four Slices, LLC will meet a demand they have identified in the Cincinnati area for what they term a "great pizza" by announcing plans to open 35-40 Marco's Pizzas, home of the Ah!thentic Italian Pizza, in the Cincy area.

Kevin Pong, a native of Cincinnati and franchisee of 12 Great Clips in the Cincy, Toledo and Michigan area, his Great Clips Partner Ken White, who is also a pharmaceutical engineer, and Dave Knoles, a former 25 year franchisee and area representative for Domino's Pizza in Florida, announced the agreement and expansion plans with Jack Butorac Jr., president, Marco's Franchising . Butorac and a team of franchise development veterans launched the 30-year-old Marco's Pizza on a growth plan after acquiring the franchise rights for the company from its Italian founder.

"We believe Cincinnati is starving, so to speak, for a great pizza," Pong said. "Marco's is a perfect fit for this market. They are the only major chain that still makes its dough fresh every day in the store. They have maintained the quality and integrity of the product recipes used by their Italian founder while on a growth curve."

Pong said the Newest Marco's Pizza in the area would open (on Sept. 24 at #43 US 22/3 Maineville, Oh 45039) . The two existing stores are located in Middletown and Hamilton. He added that the expansion program has the potential for 800 jobs in the area.

Marco's Pizzas will offer the Marco's menu of custom made Ah!thentic Italian Pizza, fresh baked subs, salads, chicken wings and soft drinks with carryout, delivery and some sit-down service.

Headquartered in Toledo, Marco's Pizza currently has more than 170 stores in 14 United States. The company recently reported same store sales increases for eight consecutive quarters.

Additional information is available by emailing dallen@marcos.com or by calling Pong at 513-607-1269. Marco's is the fastest growing pizza chain in the U.S.
