Franchise Interviews Meets with Marco's Pizza

Pat Giammarco moved to the States from Italy with his Parents when he was 9 years old.  Few years later, he worked at his Family Pizzeria with his father.  From there, the path was paved, he embarked on a mission to make the best pizza in the market place… of course with a little help from his Father’s recipe. 

From there, the first Marco's Pizza store opened in Toledo, Ohio in 1978.  Marco’s Pizza® stores offer pizza, hot sub sandwiches, salads, and cheezybread for carryout and delivery.
