CULLMAN, Ala. – A robust crowd came out for the much anticipated opening of Marco’s Pizza Monday. Partner and operating manager Evan Rollet and his staff were working hard to keep up with the enthusiastic response to the store’s opening.

Rollet laughed, “Our reinforcements just arrived,” as the phones continued to ring and a steady stream of customers came to dine in.

The Cullman store is the second store Rollet has opened. He is also partner in the Athens location that opened two years ago.

Rollet said he was excited to finally see the store open after waiting longer than expected for the location to be completed. The weather played a major role in the delays. He said he is working to get staffing where he would like it be.

"We have around 15 on staff now, but ideally we would be at 25 or more. We are short on the delivery end and hope to hire more. We deliver to the greater Cullman area,” he said.

Located at 1302 Second Ave SW (U.S. Hwy. 31) Unit A in Cullman. The restaurant offers a variety of traditional and specialty pizzas as well as salads, subs, wings, cheesy breads and desserts. It also offers delivery, carry out and dine-in options. Marco’s is open Sunday-Thursday from 10:30 a.m.- 11 p.m. and Friday and Saturday from 10:30 a.m.-midnight. Hours are the same for dine-in, carryout and delivery.
