Marco’s Pizza is the nation’s fastest growing pizza franchise and the only chain founded by an Italian native. They stand out with fresh dough made daily in every store, an exclusive, never-frozen blend of three fresh cheeses and a secret pizza sauce recipe created by the founder.
Marco’s newest location is owned by Steve Petrone, who opened his first Knoxville store in Halls last year. As a Knoxville resident for more than 40 years, Steve looks forward to providing his community with fresh, Italian pizza.
In addition to serving up scrumptious pies, Marco’s Pizza in Knoxville is committed to giving back to the community, especially through supporting our local schools. From sponsoring billboards for the school’s football team, to hosting school spirit days and rewarding the winning classes with a pizza party, to donating a portion of sales to the school, Marco’s Pizza stays involved in a number of different ways. Most recently, they held a blood drive giving away a free pizza to each person that donated a pint of blood.
If you can’t wait to get your hands on some Marco’s Pizza, you’re in luck! Everyone is invited to Kids First — a fundraising event for A.L. Lotts, Blue Grass, Northshore and Rocky Hill Elementary Schools on May 16 from noon – 3 p.m. Each school’s principal will be competing in a pizza eating competition to win the most money for his or her school. The event will be held at the new Marco’s on Ebenezer Road.
More than 15 local businesses have contributed to be in attendance, and the collective pot will be distributed between all four schools, with the winning school receiving the biggest portion.
But the principals won’t be the only ones with something fun to do. There will also be a kids’ box folding competition, dough making, a dunking booth and a bounce house. Slices of pizza – cheese or pepperoni – will be available for $2, and beverages for $1.

We loves Marcos Pizza! We’ve been eating it since they opened their first one here in Knoxville. It’s fresh and doesn’t taste like you are eating greasy take-out. Plus they have Old World Pepperoni, you know, those little ones that curl up and taste amazing!
