Fast-growing chain Marco’s Pizza has promoted a restaurant and hospitality industry veteran to its c-suite.

Marco's Pizza is continuing to expand its footprint.

The promotion comes as Marco’s continues to expand its store count both domestically and abroad. Last month, Marco’s reached a 50-unit master franchise agreement to bring the chain to Mexico City, and earlier this year, Marco’s reached an expansion milestone by opening its 1,200th location.

“The opportunity to contribute to the Marco's Pizza legacy during this phase of continued growth is truly a privilege,” said Meyers. “Our pizza is special using only top-quality ingredients, fresh cheese and dough made-from-scratch. I am committed to upholding this high quality standard and ensuring our customers enjoy it hot and fresh. Every Marco's Pizza encounter should be a memorable experience for our customers."

Headquartered in Toledo, Ohio, Marco’s operates over 1,200 stores in 34 states with locations in Puerto Rico and the Bahamas.
