Local Entrepreneur Brings the Second Marco’s Pizza to St. Augustine, FL

Locally-Owned Eatery Yearns to Satisfy the Community’s Cravings with its Delicious Pizza and More

February 22, 2023 // Franchising.com // ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. - The nation’s oldest community, St. Augustine, FL, will now be home to the newest Marco’s Pizza on February 20. Located at 230 Plaza Blvd., pizza lovers can expect only fresh, high-quality ingredients.

Bringing Marco’s pizza-making prowess to St. Augustine is the new owner and resident Clayton Kryvicky. Kryvicky has worked in the private aviation industry as a business analyst for the last several years, but has always had a goal to own a business. Kryvicky comes from a family of entrepreneurs and was introduced to Marco’s Pizza through a relative. After researching the company and the product, and being impressed by both, he felt confident about opening his own location in St. Augustine. Originally from Southwest Florida, Kryvicky is thrilled to be opening a location in his home state. After living in St. Augustine for a year, Kryvicky has developed a strong connection to the community and is glad to call the area his home. His new Marco’s Pizza will be a vessel for community growth. With such a strong connection to the community, Kryvicky is looking forward to providing his neighbors with the fresh, high-quality ingredients Marco’s Pizza is known for.

“The St. Augustine community will see that Marco’s Pizza stands out for its high-quality pizza and is known for its dough made from scratch, freshly mixed herbs and spices for the sauce, and three fresh signature cheeses,” said Kryvicky. “The pizza itself is my personal favorite. Marco’s doesn’t compromise on quality, which goes back to the Italian founder’s standards of freshness, taste, and quality.”

The Marco’s mouth-watering menu features a mix of classic and original specialty pizzas loaded with fresh toppings, including the White Cheezy, Deluxe, All Meat or Build-Your-Own Pizza and Pizza Bowls. Marco's also meets consumers’ ever-changing dietary preferences by offering Cauliflower Crust pizza and Marco’s was the first national pizza delivery brand to offer Pizza Bowls – a crustless pizza baked in a bowl.   

Customers can also choose from oven-baked subs, along with creations like the CheezyBread, Chicken Dippers and Wings, salads and desserts. With carryout, delivery, app and online ordering options, Marco’s offers the convenience of picking up a quick meal or having it delivered to your door.

Beyond its delicious pizza, Marco’s Pizza is known for its involvement with the communities it serves. The Marco’s Pizza Foundation is an extension of the brand’s mission to empower franchisees and team members to make a positive difference in their communities. The Foundation supports four key pillars: School & Education, Hunger Prevention & Nutrition, Workforce Development, and Entrepreneurship. 

Marco’s Pizza has carved out a niche in the industry for its high-quality pizza, known for its dough made from scratch for a craveable golden crust, freshly mixed herbs and spices for a sauce worth savoring and three fresh signature cheeses for a perfect, melty bite. Now, St. Augustine pizza lovers can experience the delicious goodness they’ve been craving.
