Marco’s Pizza® Announces 15-Unit Area Development Agreement for Greater Tampa DMA

September 28, 2021 // // TAMPA - Marco’s Pizza announces the signing of a development agreement that will bring 15 new stores to the Tampa metro market by the end of 2024.

Behind this area development agreement is investment group MPZ Holdings, LLC. The group successfully manages 21 Marco’s locations across South Carolina and Georgia, and with key members of the leadership team moving to the Tampa area, they’re eager to successfully grow and expand in Florida. With two signed leases igniting initial development, Marco’s Pizza will debut in Tarpon Springs at 1147 Pinellas Avenue and Dundee at 28065 Highway 27 by early Q1 2022. The MPZ Holdings leadership group aims to open five stores every year, with all 15 Marco’s locations projected to be open and operating by the end of 2024. Additional areas targeted for development include Oldsmar, Winter Haven and St. Petersburg.

“The pandemic made it clear that consumer demand for quick and delicious carryout and delivery options was here to stay,” said lead investor of MPZ Holdings, LLC. “Already impressed by the quality of Marco’s Pizza and its exceptional leadership team, we knew timing was right to further invest and be aggressive with growth. Equipped with a proven business model, we’re well on our way to developing these locations over the next three years.”

“We’re placing an emphasis on growing with incredible partners who truly embody our People-First approach to business,” said Keith Sizemore, Vice President of Development for Marco’s Pizza. “When a proven franchise partner doubles down on their current investment to open 15 more stores, it speaks to the tremendous belief they have in the Marco’s brand.”
