Marco’s Pizza, known for its fresh ingredients, secret sauce recipe and dough made in-store daily is coming to Coral Springs adding 30 new jobs to the community.
Their Grand Opening event will be held on Sunday, April 3 from 1 p.m – 6 p.m. and will include face painters, clowns, bounce house, music, carnival games and raffles. In addition, a total of 10 people – two per hour at the event will win free pizza for a year and hundreds of dollars, gift cards, prizes and memberships will also be given away from other local businesses in attendance.
“Pizza lovers in Coral Springs will quickly find out that we’re substantially different than your typical pizza chain,” said John Ekstrom of Marco’s Pizza. “I was attracted to the Marco’s brand because it was founded on Italian freshness and quality standards, making it stand out from all other well-known brands. All ingredients are genuinely fresh and truly crave-able. I am proud to open a Marco’s Pizza and offer such a quality product to the people of Florida.”
As the only national pizza chain founded by a native Italian, Marco’s has made its name in the growing $40 billion pizza industry by producing fresh, authentic, handmade pizza.
Headquartered in Toledo, Ohio, Marco’s was founded in 1978 by Italian born, Pasquale “Pat” Giammarco and thrives by making Italian Pizza with fresh ingredients. The company has grown from its roots as a beloved Ohio brand to operate more than 600 stores in 35 states, and the Bahamas.
Italian food is famous for its quality servings and Marco’s prides itself on crafting every pizza in the tradition of the classic Italian cook by using ingredients that are fresh. At a time when 91 percent of Americans eat pizza once a month, more people are increasingly choosing the quality pizza that’s synonymous with Marco’s name.
The menu at Marco’s Pizza of Coral Springs will feature a mix of classic artisan pizzas and innovative specialty pizzas like the White Cheezy, Deluxe Uno and Chicken Fresco, along with a variety of salads with croutons made daily. Customers can also choose from wholesome subs on rustic wheat or Italian white bread, hearth baked for authentic European flavor, along with creations like the Meatball Bake, Chicken Dippers and CheezyBread. With carryout, delivery, dine-in and online ordering services, Marco’s offers the convenience of picking up a quick meal or the enjoyment of sitting down at genuine, family-style restaurant.
