Free pizza for a year, and sushi in Overstreet Mall

Two new food chains are moving in to the Charlotte area: Marco's Pizza, in Indian Land, and How Do You Roll, a sushi restaurant in uptown's Overstreet Mall.

Marco's is opening Monday, June 11. The restaurant is one of more than 280 Marco's Pizza locations in the U.S., and the first in the Charlotte market. It will be located at 10092 Charlotte Highway, in Indian Land.

The restaurant is owned by franchisees Mike Hunter, his son Andy Hunter, and Kerry Nohle. They have 15 more Marco's locations under contract in the Charlotte region, and have signed on to develop as many as 49 more over the coming years. To mark the opening, they're offering the first 50 customers on Monday a free large, two-topping pizza each month for a year.

And uptown office denizens have a new option. How Do You Roll is a design-it-yourself sushi restaurant, owned by franchisee Joe Shurloch, which opened Thursday in Overstreet Mall. Here are some pictures on Charlotte Restaurant Traffic.
