Marco's Pizza is pushing to open its 500th store by 2014. The Toledo, Ohio-based chain currently has more than 350 stores open, with more than 200 in development.

"If someone was going to invest in a concept, now's the time to get in on the ground floor," said Marco's CEO Jack Butorac. "We've spent years positioning the concept and creating a great brand based on quality. We have over 350 stores open now, and our plan is to become the fourth largest pizza chain."

Marco's Pizza has been working to elevate its profile in the pizza delivery segment of the restaurant industry. According to a news release, more than 40 percent of Marco's franchisees are former franchisees of other national pizza chains.
