Marco’s Pizza Announces Strategic Expansion in Des Moines

America’s Favorite Pizza Franchise Looks to Introduce 15 Locations

June 01, 2017 // Franchising.com // Des Moines, Iowa – Marco’s Pizza, recently recognized as America’s favorite pizza company, is targeting the greater Des Moines area for growth. The company has announced plans to introduce 15 locations through strategic franchise partnerships. To drive development efforts in the market, Marco’s Pizza’s leadership team is hosting a town hall at 6:00 p.m. on Tuesday, June 6, 2017 at the Des Moines Marriott Downtown, located at 700 Grand Avenue.

The first Marco’s Pizza location in the market recently opened under the ownership of local residents Dan and Sherri Holmes. A lifelong resident of Des Moines, Dan was eager to introduce Marco’s Pizza’s quality product to his hometown after learning about the franchise on its 2016 Undercover Boss episode. While only having been open for a few weeks, business has boomed, and the Holmes are hoping to open an additional two locations within the next two years.

“Des Moines was lacking a high-quality pizza product. Not only does Marco’s Pizza fill that void, but it caters to the customer-friendly service we pride ourselves on,” said Dan Holmes. “Pizza lovers throughout the area will quickly find out that ours is unlike any other pizza franchise out there, and I’m excited to be a part of the continuous growth of the brand in the market.”

Those who attend the town hall will have an opportunity to meet Marco’s Pizza’s Vice President of Franchise Sales and Development, Travis Edmondson, to learn more about ownership opportunities and the immense potential for the brand in the area. Additionally, attendees will be able to sample the product first-hand at the event.

“We are still at the ground floor of our development in Des Moines, making it an exciting expansion region for us,” said Edmondson. “Our development team is knowledgeable about the regions of the untapped state of Iowa and we’re eager to debut Marco’s to new customers in the greater Des Moines area.”

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. Focusing on franchisee support, product quality and high regard for vendors and employees, Marco’s Pizza more than doubled in size in less than five years. With plans to open more than 100 new stores in 2017 (averaging one every three days), the company is on track to exceed 900 locations by year’s end.
