Marco’s Pizza was established in Colorado Springs to connect the community, and to support good works. Instead of starting a nonprofit — which would compete with existing non-profits in the area for funds, volunteers and publicity — the Cheatham and Parker families created a casual spot for people in the community to gather and a place that could raise money to support good causes through the sale of food and drink. In just six and a half years, the list of organizations Marco’s has helped already numbers over one thousand. This community also enjoys the affordable, tasty offerings, not just the mission. While Marco’s consistently is voted “Best of the Springs” in the “Philanthropic Business” category, it also has placed in more than 10 other categories, such as “pizza,” “al fresco dining,” “gluten free,” “salads,” food with a view,” “sub shop,” “restaurant for kids,” “caterer” and “place for a first date.” Support for good causes takes many forms through Marco’s and members of our community continue to discover this tremendous resource and force for good.
At Marco’s Briargate location, the coffee shop inside seeks to raise funds for good causes. The coffee beans used there are locally roasted by Mission Coffee Roasters in Colorado Springs. Marco’s also supports the community by opening up their “Emans Communitas Room” in their Briargate location for use by members of the community.
Next time you are thinking about feeding your family, office, team or other group; consider Marco’s. Buying pizza, salads, hot subs, wings and gelato there helps support a worthy cause. Stop by to see the great people at Marco’s, and grab some delicious pizza while you are there.
