Marco’s Pizza opened a new location in Clinton. Situated at 8809 Woodyard Road, locals can expect a primo Italian pizza experience that uses the freshest, highest-quality ingredients. The new location opened its doors to the Clinton community on May 20, according to a press release. The new Marco’s Pizza location is owned and operated by local couple Paul Rezk and Aerika Wilson. Rezk has been a fan of Marco’s Pizza for over 15 years, so he decided to combine his dream of opening his own business with the deliciousness that is Marco’s Pizza, according to the press release.

“We are a family-run, community-oriented business and can’t wait to bring the fresh taste of Marco’s Pizza to the Clinton community,” Rezk said in the release. “I have been eating Marco’s Pizza for over 15 years and was attracted to the Marco’s brand because it was founded on Italian freshness and quality standards, making it stand out from all other well-known brands.”

As the only national pizza chain founded by a native Italian, Marco’s has made its name in the growing $47 billion pizza industry by producing fresh, authentic, handmade Italian quality pizza, according to the release. At a time when 91% of Americans eat pizza once a month, more people are increasingly choosing the quality pizza made from fresh ingredients.

Marco’s Pizza recently launched a new brand promise, “Hello Primo,” to reinforce its roots and ensure guests can discover “The Italian Way” that shaped the brand into what it is today. The founder, Pasquale “Pat” Giammarco, grew up making pizzas with his father after they immigrated to the United States from Sulmona, Italy.

The menu at Marco’s Pizza in Clinton will feature a mix of classic pizzas and innovative specialty pizzas like the White Cheezy, Deluxe and All Meat, along with a variety of salads with croutons made daily. Customers can also choose from wholesome subs on Italian white bread, hearth baked for authentic European flavor, along with creations like the Meatball Bake, Chicken Dippers and CheezyBread. With carryout, delivery, dine-in and online ordering services, Marco’s offers the convenience of picking up a quick meal or the enjoyment of sitting down at a genuine, family-style restaurant.

Marco’s Pizza has more than 900 stores and aims to reach over 1,000 locations in 2019. For more information about the Clinton location, visit www.marcos.com/ or call 240-846-3630.
