Nation’s Fastest Growing Pizza Franchise to Add 40 New Locations

Marco’s Pizza Announces Aggressive Growth Plans for Pittsburgh

PITTSBURGH - December 19, 2016 - (BUSINESS WIRE) - Marco’s Pizza, the fastest-growing pizza franchise in the United States, continues its growth in Pennsylvania with plans to introduce 40 new locations creating more than 1,000 new jobs throughout the greater Pittsburgh area. The brand plans to ramp up growth through a selective strategy and aims to open the new locations in the next three to five years. There are currently two thriving locations open in Pittsburgh.

In addition to the Marco’s Pizza business model indicating the area would support prosperous Marco’s locations, pizza is the no. 1 most delivered food item in the state of Pennsylvania, making Pittsburgh an attractive market for Marco’s to pursue. Target markets surrounding the greater Pittsburgh DMA include Butler, New Castle, Cranberry Township and Greensburg.

“Our development in Pittsburgh is only beginning, which is an exciting chapter in our growth story. Our team is knowledgeable about the regions of the untapped state, and is poised to bring success to its entrepreneurs,” said John Ramsey, VP of Franchise Development. “With the city’s strong sports fan base and growing labor force, Pittsburgh shows every sign for potential success for franchisees.”

As the only national franchise chain founded by a native Italian, Marco’s Pizza has carved out a niche in the industry as the expert in authentic Italian pizza, known for its fresh never-frozen dough made daily on site, a proprietary cheese blend that is fresh never-frozen and a secret pizza sauce recipe. The 750-plus unit company aims to reach 1,000 locations in 2017. Marco’s Pizza continues to open an average of one new store every third day, more than doubling its size in less than five years.
