Marco’s Pizza Multi-Unit Partners Sign Agreement to Double Size

Brandon Hudson and Damion Mason were college friends who became business partners establishing a portfolio of Marco’s Pizza restaurants in Virginia. They have five locations open and have just signed a new agreement to open seven more Marco’s Pizza stores in the Roanoke and Lynchburg areas over the next two and a half years.
“Damion and I grew up with Marco’s, joining when there were 700 stores to now with 1,100 stores and counting,” Hudson said. “Expanding the brand as it grows means we can help share the quality of the Marco product with even more people. As one of the brand’s largest African American multi-unit operators, we are excited to continue sharing our legacy for our families and the community.
Hudson and Mason first found success with Marco’s Pizza in the Richmond market and jumped at the opportunity to expand into the untapped market areas of Roanoke and Lynchburg.
“Over the years and through various business ventures, we have learned that entrepreneurial success is much easier when you partner with someone you trust and when you help further develop a brand that is on the same fast track to growth that you are in. While we’ve had strong performance with our existing Marco’s locations, the brand’s recent success has created increased potential for the multi-unit franchise opportunity,” added Mason.
The first of the partners’ new Marco’s locations is expected to open before the end of this year. The duo plans to build the Greater Lynchburg and Roanoke areas.
