Premium quality upgrades don’t usually come with value pricing, but that’s exactly what Marco’s Pizza will be bringing to Shawnee when it opens soon at 2003 N. Harrison St.

Celebrated for its authentically prepared Italian-style pizza, Marco’s Pizza menu items are hand made using fresh, never frozen cheeses, dough made in store daily and only premium meats and vegetables. The new restaurant, which is opening next to Family Video in the same shopping center, will offer carryout and convenient delivery service. Family Video’s ownership team, Highland Ventures, LTD., which has operated the video store since 1998, will also own and operate the new Marco’s Pizza location. 

“Opening in Shawnee is a perfect fit,” Mike Heuston, the Regional Director who overseas local operations. “From the quality and value to the convenience of Marco’s Pizza, we know our neighbors will love having Marco’s Pizza so close by.”

Highland Ventures, LTD. is Marco’s Pizza’s largest franchisee, owning and operating more than 150 locations. The new restaurant coming to Shawnee is part of an innovative strategy to embed Marco’s Pizza stores with Family Video locations, combining two of every neighborhood’s pastimes, movie entertainment and pizza. As a result of bringing the two brands together in one location, Marco’s Pizza will offer Shawnee what no other local pizzeria, or any restaurant that delivers can offer, Pizza & A Movie Delivered Right to Your Door. Highland Ventures owns the Family Video brand and operates more than 700 stores. 

Founded 40 years ago in Oregon, Ohio, just outside of Toledo, Marco’s Pizza is the fastest growing pizza company in the United States. The brand’s founder, Pasquale “Pat” Giammarco, who immigrated to the United States with his family at a young age, spent his childhood working in his family’s pizzeria, which became the impetus for Marco’s Pizza. There are currently more than 20 Marco’s Pizza locations in Oklahoma. The Shawnee location will be the first in Pottawatomie County.
