Marco’s Pizza expands fresh concept in Lehigh Acres
Three times a charm — the popular take-out pizza concept, Marco’s Pizza, now offers a second Lehigh Acres location, its third in Lee County.
The new Lehigh eatery opened its doors in May and word has quickly spread, according to owner Ripudamam Rattan who says he opened up his third Lee location to service another section of Lehigh and to offer the same quality product made from fresh ingredients.
Rattan said he found out about the pizza franchise while visiting the city of Toledo, Ohio, where the Marco’s brand originated.
He decided to bring the pizza franchise business into Florida, and opened his first location in Cape Coral about five years ago, then a store in Lehigh Acres off Bell Blvd a few years later.
“The one thing I really liked about Marco’s, was their dedication to supplying only the highest-quality food products. We make our pizza doughs every day in the store and always use fresh tomatoes for the sauces. We make a three-blend cheese pizza, and never add preservatives,” Rattan said. “Even the next day our pizza tastes great.”
According to Rattan, another option that draws customers is the ability to customize any pizza.
“We can customize just about any type of pizza, but we do have our top six specialty pizza including our Hawaiian Pizza which is very different than the other brands. We make it with ham, chicken, bacon and pineapple. Our white-cheesy is another popular pizza made with a white, garlic parmesan sauce, bacon, onion, tomatoes and topped with feta cheese.
Marcos also offers a wide assortment of salads, subs, wings, cheesy bread and brownies and cinnamon squares.
Rattan said he plans to open additional locations in Lee County.
The Marcos Pizza franchise can be found throughout the United States, and one additional Florida location in Bonita Springs.
Marco’s Pizza newest store is at 4316 Lee Blvd, Ste 2, Lehigh Acres. Phone: 239-674-3073. Hours of operation are Sunday thru Thursday 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., Saturday and Friday from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m.
