When Joe Szych Sr. moved to Southwest Florida, he couldn’t find authentic Italian pizza like he enjoyed at “Marco’s Pizza” while living in Toledo, Ohio. His son, Joe Jr., was employed at Marco’s in Toledo for 14 years. So, father asked son to move to Florida and become his partner in purchasing a “Marco’s Pizza” franchise in North Port. That was five years ago, and business has been so successful that the Szych’s decided to open a second location at 19451 Cochran Blvd., in Port Charlotte, that recently had its grand opening.

“I grew up on Marco’s pizza,” Joe Jr. said. “I’m pleased to be co-owner of a business that I love. And I like Florida, but I miss the seasons. I want to take my three young children back there someday so that they can enjoy some fun in the snow as I did as a kid.”
