With more than 1000 stores in 34 states and millions of dollars in investment in technology, innovation, and marketing planned for the next few years, Marco’s Pizza is headed for $1 billion in sales in 2022. This growth will also see Marco’s become the fourth largest, as well as the nation’s fastest growing, pizza chain.
In fact, Marco’s also received the honor of being named number 70 on Entrepreneur’s 2022 Franchise 500, the world’s first, best, and most comprehensive franchise ranking. “There’s never been a more opportune time for both existing and prospective franchisees to grow with Marco’s,” said Tony Libardi, co-CEO and President of Marco’s, in a press release. He credited their growth to the efforts of stakeholders ranging from franchisees to employees, support centers, patrons, and the executive leadership team for all espousing and delivering on the company’s brand promise at every turn.
Marco’s future will incorporate pilot programs seeking to bring innovative technology to the company in its relentless pursuit of exceptional service and delivery. They hope to incorporate AI for voice-to-text ordering and automated predictive times for delivery. Robotic kitchens and simulated drone delivery are also in the offing.
Marco’s devotion to providing the best service possible, the strong culture behind the brand, and a planned push for advertising all indicate a potential future as the number one pizza brand in the nation.
