Family Video & Marcos Pizza opens in Glenview

GLENVIEW — The new Family Video & Marcos Pizza is a backer of good service and it shows when patrons enter the new dual store in Glenview.

Regional manager Jim Burda seemed to know most patrons.

“Our philosophy has always been customer service and quality of product, which are first and foremost,” Burda said.

“For pizzas, we make fresh dough daily here and ingredients.”

Marcos Pizza is headquartered in Toledo, Ohio, and Burda said the partnership was based on similar business philosophies.

“Both are family owned and started around 1978,” he said.

The new store at 3120 Glenview Road opened in June and it’s the 77th now in business in 19 states.

The combination video store and take-out pizza restaurant was in a good location east of the busy Glenview-Shermer roads, Burda said, and near Glen Grove Elementary School.

For 20 years, the Report Card A program at Family Video has awarded school students with free video or game rental with an A on their reports cards.

Burda said Marcos Pizza is offering the same with one small pizza and topping every June.

“Every quarter of the year, we also want to have a program that benefits the community somehow,” he said.

“In March, we raised $1.2 million nationally for lymphoma research.”

He also said Family Video had the latest in movie titles and according to company literature it was the number 1 movie rental chain.

Marcos Pizza in Glenview delivers within a 3-mile radius, and the menu subs, salads and “extra fun,” such as cheesebread, meatball bake, chicken wings and chicken dippers.

It also offers 22 pizza toppings and free crust toppers — garlic butter, Roma seasoning and Parmesan cheese.
