The pizza chain has already signed 88 franchise agreements since the beginning of the year.

The brand has also signed multiple area development deals to bring a total of 20 new sites to Colorado which is a part of a much larger strategy to grow its 1,000 plus unit footprint by more than 10 per cent this year.

Marco’s is also continuing to build on its robust pipeline of over 200 locations in various stages of development. The restaurant chain is targeting key areas including Austin, Dallas, Denver, Miami, Orlando, San Antonio and Southern California.

“Our teams have been busy working to lower unit build-out costs while simultaneously driving higher sales,” explained Tony Libardi, Co-CEO and President of Marco’s Pizza. “This, paired with ease of funding, has created an opportune time for both existing and prospective franchisees to grow with Marco’s.”

The brand currently operates 1,000 stores in 34 states.
