Marco’s Pizza expands to Austin Bluffs

The Marco’s Pizza franchise is expanding in Colorado Springs.

The family that brought the authentic Italian-style recipe to Colorado Springs about a year and a half ago opened another location and will celebrate its grand opening at its new 4492 Austin Bluff Parkway location Oct. 1.

The first Marco’s in Colorado Springs opened at 9420 Briar Village Point on the north end of the city.

“They’re doing well and they’re going to be looking for more locations in the Springs,” said Mark Ernster, broker associate at NAI Highland Commercial.

Marco’s is the fastest growing pizza chain in the country, according to a release.

It was founded by, Pasquale “Pat” Giammarco, an Italian immigrant who was disappointed with the quality of pizza in the U.S.
