The new Marco’s Pizza store is located at 17900 N. Western Avenue in Edmond. Marco’s also has a second location in Broken Arrow and will open a Lawton store in June.
“Marco’s Pizza is in the process of expanding nationwide and Oklahoma is a fairly new territory,” Wilkerson says. “We are excited about the opportunity to introduce Edmond and Oklahoma City to Marco’s high-quality pizza. We make fresh dough every day in our stores and use a proprietary sauce recipe and blend of three fresh cheeses. Customers will enjoy the Marco’s Pizza difference.”
Wilkerson, a retired U.S. Army Colonel, found that franchising requires a range of the leadership and business skills he developed both in the military and as an owner of a mergers and acquisitions firm.
“I have really enjoyed the wide variety of responsibilities as an area representative and the opportunity to work with a team toward the common goal of expanding the Marco’s Pizza brand throughout the region,” he says. “I think people with military backgrounds can often be a great fit for this work and I love being in on the ground floor of a great idea.”
“Marco’s Pizza’s development in Oklahoma City and Tulsa is a wonderful testament to our company’s growth,” says Jack Butorac, Marco’s president and CEO. “Marco’s has a great future in Oklahoma.”
