Tomorrow (December 22) will be Marco's opening day and I'm glad to see another pizza restaurant open in the Shoals. One of the most exciting things about the new Marco's Pizza Restaurant is that they offer the ability to eat in. So many Pizza places are delivery and carryout only so it's nice to see a new one that you can order and eat inside the restaurant.
I took some photos and will post those below. This was a day that they invited the families of their employees to stop by to sample their Pizzas so they did have a couple of pizzas and some cheese sticks on a table out front. The pizzas looked great with the cheese distribution appearing almost perfect and the Meat Pizza and an ample supply of toppings unlike some I've seen in the past where toppings were heavy in some places and absent in others.
Another thing that was impressive is that the owner is going to be on site and active in the operation and running of the store. Many times a restaurant is run by employees and a manager and the owner isn't anywhere to be seen but in this case, at Marco's, the owner will be active in making sure that things are up to the highest standards. I did sample one pice of pizza while there, as I was offered the chance, and the taste was great and I can't wait till they open and I can get the whole pie. I think Marco's will become a favorite of many folks in the Shoals and I hope they are very successful, as I think they will be.
I will choose to insert a few of the photos in this post but if you look in the window below you can view all of the photos. Please note that I am in no way connected with and/or related to the owner, Marco's Pizza, or any employee or family member of an employee but I like to take photos and post as much information about any new restaurant to the area as I want to see Florence and the Shoals area continue to increase in popularity and attract new businesses and I want to see each and every new business to prosper and be successful. I think that Marco's will be successful for many reasons but it's a huge risk people take to open a new business but because of people like them not only does our community benefit but the employees and the families of the employees are helped so I hope the best for all new businesses.
