Marco's Pizza announced today that it expects to end 2013 with unprecedented growth after four consecutive quarters of record store openings.
After adding 61 stores in 2011 and 62 stores in 2012, Marco's expects to surpass its goal of adding 104 stores in 2013 and should close out the year with 110 new franchises.
"Think of Five Guys Burgers and Fries where they created the better burger category. We are now clearly defining the 'better pizza category,' or as we call it, the 'Perfect Pie category.' With all this momentum, we have hit the tipping point," said Cameron Cummins, VP of Franchise Marketing and Recruiting.
Marco's anticipates hitting the 500-store mark in April 2014.
