Marco’s Pizza — a pizza chain that has 1,100 stores across the country and the Bahamas — is expected to add a location in the Reston and Herndon area next year.
In an announcement on Wednesday (Dec. 14), the company said it plans to open nine total stores in Virginia.
First in line was a location at 46515 Harry Byrd Highway in Sterling, which recently opened. In addition to that site, franchisee Michael Ghanem is in the early stages of selecting locations in Herndon, Reston, Leesburg, Arlington, Alexandra and Mount Vernon.
“When we began our search for viable franchise opportunities, we were looking for one key factor in particular — the potential for growth,” Ghanem said. “Marco’s growth journey has been nothing short of remarkable and seeing the untapped potential in Northern Virginia, we knew it was an opportune time to join the brand and grow our portfolio.”
The company did not respond to a request for comment on the exact location of the Reston store by press time. It’s expected to open in the first quarter of 2023.
Headquartered in Toledo, Ohio, the business was founded by Italian-born Pasquale Giammarco in 1978. Items on the menu include pizzas, pizza bowls, subs, and salads.
