Marion’s Piazza named ‘Best Pizza Place in Ohio’ by web site


Marion’s Piazza has been named the “Best Pizza Place in Ohio” by a digital media company’s web site.

In a story entitled “The Best Pizza Places in Every U.S. State, Mapped,” the digital media company vivalifestyleandtravel.com proclaims Marion’s as the best in the Buckeye state. The web site says it serves “quintessential travelers, foodies, leisure seekers and culture hunters from around the world.”

We work with hundreds of Contributing Writers, Videographers and Photographers around the world who seek out and curate insider experiences for the quintessential Millennial Traveler,” the web site says.

There is no mention of what criteria were used in making the digital company’s selections of the best pizza places in each state, other than to proclaim that the web site “tracked down the best spots across the country for you to feast on. … you won’t be able to resist our selection.”

Marion’s is no stranger to national recognition. Less than three months ago, the Dayton-based pizza chain was named No. 1 in Pizza Today’s “Hot 100” list — a position it has held four out of the last five years.

Each year, the magazine ranks the largest independently owned pizza operations in the U.S. based on sales. And this year, Marion’s came in first, with just under $21 million in sales.

The magazine uses gross sales as its sole criteria, measuring all pizzerias with nine or fewer restaurants in the “independent” category. Marion’s operates nine pizza restaurants in the Dayton/northern Cincinnati area.

Marion’s Piazza was the only Dayton-area pizza chain to be named to the “Hot 100” list. It ranked second for a few years before finally breaking through to No. 1 in 2013.

Pizza Today’s editors said the list “is a testament to the ingenuity, diligence and skill of the pizzeria owners who make the grade.”
