Marco’s Pizza announces the hiring of John King as Senior VP of Operations. Coming from an impressive background in operations, finance, and development, specific to the pizza industry, King looks to utilize his expertise to help streamline Marco’s in-store operations and help stores continually deliver a five-star guest experience. He brings more than two decades worth of senior leadership experience with a focus in practical operations, finance and analytics. This combined with his people-first mentality brings immense value to the Marco’s executive leadership team.

King spent most of his career at Domino’s Pizza, working his way from up from accounting/assistant controller to national Vice President of Franchise Operations throughout his 25-year tenure. During this time, he learned all the vital ins-and-outs of business, from finances to operations, and contributed to the franchise’s overall growth. At the time of his departure from Domino’s Pizza, he was directing the operations of more than 6,000 stores across the United States before joining Donatos Pizza as Chief Operating Officer. In this role, he managed company-wide operations, business development and innovation practices.

“I am looking forward to applying my operations knowledge and leadership experience in this new role, placing added value on company culture to influence performance,” shared King. “Marco’s is on track to becoming the fourth largest pizza brand in the country and I am eager to utilize my category experience to accelerate company-wide success in achieving that goal.”

King reports to Executive VP and Chief of Operations Tim Brown, a 40-year veteran of the pizza business. King is responsible for franchise operations and development initiatives for non-Area Representative areas and serves as a member of Marco’s Executive Team.

“John’s resume speaks for itself, and his values align with those of the Marco’s brand,” said Brown. “I am confident that he is the right person for this role and will be a strong asset in attaining our short and long-term goals as we continue to scale nationwide.”
