Marco's Pizza Announces Expansion Plans for Greater Cincinnati Area

One of the Fastest-Growing Pizza Franchise Chains in the Nation Is Seeking Entrepreneurs in the Cincinnati, Ohio, Metropolitan Area

TOLEDO, OH--(Marketwired - Jan 25, 2016) - To meet the growing demand for pizza in the Cincinnati, Ohio, metropolitan area, Marco's Pizza® franchise is seeking to partner with entrepreneurs who want a slice of the action.

How big is the demand for pizza in Cincinnati? According to, Cincinnati is the 20th fastest-growing large metro economy in the U.S. That kind of growth makes it a perfect location for a Marco's Pizza®. Their Ah!thentic Italian-style pizza is fresh-made with delectable cheeses, meats and vegetables, and they have several prime Cincinnati locations available for franchise partners who want to be part of the nation's fastest-growing large pizza chain.

The region's business climate -- legal, accounting, architectural, engineering, advertising and other service industries -- and its tourism bring thousands of people to the area each day. Cincinnati has a famous zoo, plus storied museums and sports franchises. All those people need food, and Americans' go-to staple is pizza. Marco's Pizza is ready to meet the need.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture recently published a study on American eating habits that found on any given day 13% of the entire U.S. population is eating pizza. With Greater Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky's population of 2,130,151, that works out to 276,920 people feasting on pizza daily, and Marco's is ready to grab a big slice of that market. Unlike competitors who have oversaturated markets, Marco's Pizza has plenty of regions across the nation that franchisees have yet to tap into -- Greater Cincinnati is one of them.

Marco's Pizza prides itself on making the best pizza money can buy. We hand-make it in the Italian tradition, using fresh, never-frozen cheeses, making the dough in stores daily and using only premium meats and vegetables. Founded in Toledo in 1978, Marco's is the only Top 20 pizza chain founded by a native Italian. Marco's has enjoyed stunning growth in recent years and is on pace to open 1,000 restaurants by the end of 2017. The brand's proven business model and sustainable growth has been heralded by the likes of Forbes, Consumer Report, Entrepreneur, Franchise Times and Nation's Restaurant News.

"Our franchisees come from a remarkably wide variety of backgrounds. But there's a common thread among our franchisees -- passion for the Marco's product. Almost half of them were Marco's consumers first. They fell in love with our product," said Cameron Cummins, Chief Development Officer for Marco's Pizza.

Marco's Pizza is growing faster than the overall pizza industry
Marco's Pizza has the fastest unit growth, according to Nation's Restaurant News, which named the beloved pizza franchise as part of its Second 100 List. That list analyzes businesses that are smaller but are focusing on growing around the nation.

The publication states that while the pizza industry is mature and growth is limited, Marco's Pizza is the exception. Not only is Marco's growing faster than other pizza franchises, Marco's Pizza sales growth also is higher than any other pizza franchise. The publication reports that Marco's Pizza sales growth is tops for system-wide sales in the Second 100 pizza segment.
