Marco’s Pizza will open a fourth Arlington location this year.
Coming to 3360 Matlock Rd, the forthcoming pizzeria will occupy suite 150 in Matlock Mayfield Village. Interior renovation work on the 1,536-square-foot space is expected to be completed in early May.
The new restaurant is being brought to the area by franchise owner Justin Heath who is also a partner in Marco’s Pizza of Midlothian.
Founded in 1978 by Italian-born Pasquale “Pat” Giammarco, Marco’s Pizza has established itself as one of the nation’s most loved, most trusted and fastest-growing pizza brands. While its headquarters are in Toledo, Ohio, there are currently over 1,000 stores (mostly franchises) in operation in 34 states. There are also locations in Puerto Rico and the Bahamas.
With the increase in customers turning to delivery and take out due to the pandemic, Marco’s Pizza has seen consistent impressive growth over the past two years. The brand recently inked one of the largest franchisee deals in its history with Houston area representative Robert Pina. Pina, who currently oversees 67 stores in Houston and San Antonio alongside business partner Uyen Tran, is set to develop 46 new stores in the greater Phoenix market over the next six years.
According to a press release, Marco’s Pizza is on track to reach $1 billion in annual systemwide sales by the end of 2022 and is looking to open over 150 new stores this year.
Offering high-quality pizzas made with from scratch dough and three fresh signature cheeses, the menu at Marco’s Pizza also includes pizza bowls, subs, and salads.
