Marco's Pizza® Franchise Opportunity


The brand has tremendous whitespace and a superior product. It’s an honor to open the milestone 1,100th store. As we get into 2023 and 2024, 1,100 will seem like a small blip, because Marco’s will be at 3,000 in no time – we’re on the fast-track to growth!

My Marco's franchising experience presents a unique opportunity to grow a business portfolio and give back to my community. Marco's has been a blessing in my life and with three stores open, two in development, and another five to open from there - I can't wait for what the future holds.

As the brand approaches $1B in annual systemwide sales, current franchisees are doubling down on expansion and riding the wave of the brand's explosive, record-breaking sales growth by expanding and growing their sales territories.

Marco's Pizza has 1,100 locations across the US, Bahamas, and Puerto Rico. Stores continue to open at a rapid rate due to process improvements, incentives for multi-unit growth, and ease of securing financing from preferred lenders. Marco's average unit volume climbed 12.8% to $1,198,201 for the Top 50% of franchised stores in 2021*.

At the crux of Marco's ongoing growth is its renowned products, its high-quality pizza known for its dough made from scratch, sauce with freshly mixed herbs and spices, and three fresh signature cheeses. Marco's Pizza was named America's Most Loved and Most Trusted Pizza Brand, according to the 2019 Harris Poll EquiTrend® Study.

Marco's superior product, paired with a proven business model and an executive leadership team that packs more than 200 years of collective experience in the restaurant industry, some of whom own franchises themselves, allows the brand to stay on its path of sustained excellence.

Marco's is committed to providing franchisees with high-quality products to sell, a proven business model, a national TV advertising presence, and dedicated technology and innovation investments.

Marco's provides support for new franchisees in four crucial areas: financing, growth incentives for multi-unit operators, real estate, design & construction. Plus, according to FRANdata, a leading research and advisory firm that analyzes the franchise market, Marco's 2021 FUND Score is in the top 1% of all evaluated franchise systems and is among the top three scores for all QSR brands.

Now is a great time to add Marco's Pizza to your portfolio. In fact, many of Marco's current franchisees are growing with the brand.

Kal Gullapalli, a multi-brand, multi-unit franchisee, joined the Marco's brand in 2021 with a desire to diversify his portfolio amid the ongoing pandemic. After seven years on Wall Street, Gullapalli transitioned to entrepreneurship and now is a veteran in the franchise industry owning several fitness locations, health and wellness retail centers and now currently owns 36 Marco's Pizza locations with a desire to grow to a 100-plus store portfolio by 2025.

"There's never been a more opportune time for both existing and prospective franchisees to grow with Marco's," said Steve Seyferth, SVP and Chief Experience Officer at Marco's Pizza. "With plenty of territories available for growth, our development and performance strategy remain centered on finding multi-unit franchisees who align with our business strategy and culture, while continuing to prioritize innovation and maximize unit-level profitability."
