The Secret is in the Sauce at Marco's Pizza

By Heidi Mason

With headquarters in Toledo, Ohio, Marco's Pizza is rapidly growing and committed to making authentic Italian pizzas with fresh ingredients. Pasquale "Pat" Giammarco, who founded Marco's, emigrated from Italy at the tender age of nine. He spent his youth working in the family pizzeria.

When Giammarco established his own pizza business, he was determined to do it the authentic Italian way. Marco's Pizza set out to develop a culture of accountability at all organizational levels. This model is based upon a "see it, own it, solve it, do it" strategy. This mindset has established Marco's Pizza as a forerunner in the pizza industry, with a goal of opening a new store every other day, which will put them on track to reach or exceed 1,000 locations by 2017.

Marco's Pizza is the only national pizza franchise chain founded by a native of Italy. This first-hand knowledge allows Marco's Pizza to produce fresh, authentic, handmade pizzas. Marco's Pizza is known for its fresh dough, which is made daily on-site. They also specialize in a proprietary blend of cheeses that is always fresh. They hold bragging rights to their own special secret pizza sauce recipe. Marco's Pizza is proud to craft each and every pizza in the tradition of the classic Italian cook. Marco's Pizza believes that there is no need to mess with perfection- and has not changed its secret sauce since 1978.

Marco's Pizza does try to be innovative while holding on to tradition. They offer new products regularly, such as the Grilled Chicken Florentine pizza which was recently celebrated in conjunction with National Spinach Day. Marco's Pizza will also debut a new dessert in June.

According to Bryon Stephens, President and COO of Marco's Pizza, quality is at the heart of customer satisfaction. Stephen explains, "At a time when ninety-one percent of Americans eat pizza once a month, more people are increasingly choosing the quality pizza that is synonymous with Marco's name." If you are in the mood for pizza, look for one of Marco's Pizza's 600 current locations. You are sure to experience the care and quality that goes into every slice.
