The franchise owners of the Marco’s Pizza in Sanford, which opened on South Horner Boulevard about two years ago, have announced a second location in the Buffalo Lake area just over the Lee-Harnett county line.

The new location is at 80 Amarillo Lane off of Buffalo Lakes Road, and a grand opening including free pizza, drinks, games, and more, is set for Sunday from 1 to 4 p.m.

When the Sanford location opened in 2017, Marco’s billed itself as the “fastest growing” pizza franchise in the country. Founded in Toledo, Ohio in 1978, the company says it will open its 1000th location this year. There are at least a couple dozen Marco’s locations in North Carolina, including in the Triangle, Triad, Fayetteville, and Wilmington areas.
