One of the Fastest-Growing Pizza Franchise Chains in the Nation Is Seeking Entrepreneurs in the Florida Counties of Broward and Dade

TOLEDO, OH--(Marketwired - Feb 25, 2016) - To meet the growing demand for pizza in the Florida counties of Broward and Miami-Dade, 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 Broward and Miami-Dade counties? The two most populous counties in Florida have a thriving business culture that includes the bustling cities of Miami and Fort Lauderdale. Major corporations, such as Silver Airways, Brightstar Corporation, Burger King and many, many more, are headquartered in the city. The counties are also home to the University of Miami, which employs thousands in the area -- as do the federal and local and government divisions based in the area. The counties of Broward and Miami-Dade will be great places to do business well into the future.

That kind of growth makes them perfect locations for Marco's Pizza®. Their Ah!thentic Italian-style pizza is fresh-made with delectable cheeses, meats and vegetables, and they have several prime locations in Broward and Miami-Dade counties available for franchise partners who want to be part of the nation's fastest-growing large pizza chain.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture recently published a study on American eating habits that found that on any given day, 13% of the entire U.S. population is eating pizza. When applied to the counties of Broward and Miami-Dade -- population of more than 4.3 million -- that statistic means that nearly 560,000 residents of Broward and Miami-Dade counties are eating pizza every single day. Marco's Pizza is ready to grab a big slice of that market.

Marco's Pizza prides itself on making the best pizza money can buy. It is handmade 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 have 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.

Marco's Pizza franchise seeks friendly, passionate entrepreneurs in Broward and Miami-Dade counties
Marco's Pizza wants welcoming, friendly individuals who remember customers' names and are passionate about the product to join the Marco's Pizza franchisee family. The investment required to start a Marco's Pizza franchise is typically about $350,000. The pizza franchise is looking for people who have a net worth of $150,000 and a minimum liquidity of $100,000.
