Toledo-based Marco’s Pizza has reached a milestone with the opening of its 300th store.
The store in Wheeling, Ill., is the first in that state for the company, which opens about one store a week. It said it has stores in 24 states and the Bahamas.
The company, founded in 1978, plans to open more than 85 locations by the end of the year.
“Our continued success, despite a weakened economy, is a true testament to the brand and all that we’ve done to position ourselves atop the multibillion- dollar pizza industry,” Jack Butorac, chief executive officer, said in a statement.
