Marco's Pizza

Image Via Wikipedia

It’s late…there’s nothing in the fridge…going to the grocery store seems like a chore…you deserve a good dinner…relax, there’s a way around this internal conversation: Marcos Pizza.  Marcos Pizza is a recently new arrival to the Orchard Mall in Westminster, CO.  Marco’s pizza is located right next to the AMC Theater 12 – Orchard Mall.  They offer delivery which may be a good idea since parking can be a bit dicey.  The Orchard Mall features metered parking which can be tight although they do offer parking around the rear – it is a stroll…This great maker of pizza focuses on three areas: dough, sauces and cheese.  They hit it out of the park on all phases.

About Marco’s Pizza

Headquartered in Toledo; OH Marco’s Pizza (Marco’s Franchising, LLC) is the fastest-growing pizza company in the U.S. (based on the number of stores signed into development since 2007). Marco’s was founded by Pasquale “Pat” Giammarco and is committed to making Ah!thentic Italian pizza with fresh ingredients. The company has grown from its roots as a beloved Ohio brand to operate more than 250 stores in 20 states and the Bahamas. Marco’s is now recognized as one of the top-performing restaurant franchises in the country.

Our family just recently had the conversation above last weekend and ordered from our favorite local pizza place: Marcos.  The selection they have to offer is remarkable with some very unique options such as:

  • Chicken Fresco
  • White Cheezy
  • Hawaiian Chicken
Next time you have a need for someone else to make dinner do yourselves a favor and check out Marcos Pizza.
Instead of driving there it may be a good idea to relocate closer so you can walk…(pardon my less than fluid segue into real estate 😉 although here are some great homes for sale  in Westminster, CO that would be in walking distance to Marcos Pizza.

Northglenn, COexterior shot of fit soldiers northglenn colorado location

Congratulations to Dave and Dave at Fit Soldiers for turning one!  Members of the Metro North Chamber joined the duo at their ribbon cutting celebrating being in business for one full year.  As a major hurdle in many young businesses they are posed to continue growing and will be staples of the community for years to come. 

What is Fit Soldiers?  Without throwing too much puffery (real estate term for over selling) this could be the single greatest and fastest way to get fit, healthy and increase your athleticism.  Okay, I’m prone to some hyperbole but after meeting the DavesI became a member and found it to be an exhilarating way to finish a workout without being board and by maintaining motivation throughout the workout.  Ditch the mundane workouts and enjoy less conventional ways of getting fit with the use of tractor tires, dueling ropes, TRX Suspension Trainers, sandbags and many more interesting strategies. 

Give them a call and ask about how to get involved or stop by and visit them:

Fit Soldiers Fitness Boot Camps is located at 2100 E. 112th Ave. #2 in Northglenn.  For more information please call (720) 333-8497 or visit www.fitsoldiers.com.

Would you rather walk there instead of driving?  Here are some homes for sale within walking distance:

This weekend my wife and I enjoyed our 12 year wedding anniversary.  We spent an evening at the Queen Anne Bed and Breakfast in Denver near Curtis Park.  It couldn’t have been a nicer evening. 

We spent the evening shopping locally on the 16th Street Mall in Denver.  The lights were lit for the holidays and the horse drawn carriages were decorated to look like sleighs. 

The Queen Anne has new ownership who took over in 2008 and is committed to making it a green inn.  From the soaps and shampoo, to the bedding and right down to the food they serve they have commited to using local foods and vendors and to sustainability to the building itself.  Go and visit this historic site and enjoy the sustainability changes this new business owner is instituting.  www.queenannebnb.com

Thornton, CO August 6, 2009: Keller Williams Preferred Realty presented Thornton Elementary with a gift of well needed school supplies in an effort to give back to the community.  The agents of Keller Williams Preferred Realty held a company picnic in July.  The suggested donation for attendance was some much needed school supplies which would be donated to a school chosen by the winning team of various realty related field-day type events.  The teams competed in a ‘busy agent water balloon toss’ where agents would toss balloons of gradually lengthening distances while holding a cell phone to their ears.  There was a ‘reluctant buyer three legged race’ and a ‘yard sign relay’.  The yard sign relay consisted of the first runner placing a yard sign after a 40 yard dash.  The second runner, realizing the yard sign was without brochures, ran to the sign to simulate filling a brochure box.  The premise for the third and final runner was that the property was overpriced and thus had to run to the sign to place a ‘price reduced’ magnetic sign. 

Three different teams of agents meet with Principal Carol Sorvig who accepted the donation on behalf of the school.  The winning team was represented by Heidi Strange of TheStrangeTeam.com , Kato Mitchell and Rumaldo Ulibarri.  Thornton Elementary welcomed the donation with open arms.  

The Keller Williams culture is to come from a place of contribution, and this marks the second concerted effort from this office this year on a mass scale donation to the community.  In May earlier this year Keller Williams Preferred donated 1800 pounds of food to the Food Bank of the Rockies.
