Congratulations go out to Marco’s Pizza, which celebrated being the proud winners of the 2012 Taste of New Tampa “Best of Taste” by hosting a celebration lunch on April 16.

Chamber members and guests were presented with a delicious buffet of pizza, CheezyBread and buttery CinnaSquares and the brand new “New Yorker” pizza with oversized slices! Congratulations go to Scott Decker and his staff for creating the Chamber’s favorite pizza in New Tampa. The Taste of New Tampa judges awarded the prize to Marco’s Pizza for its yummy White Cheesy Pizza. The judges indicated that Marco’s did a great job of delivering both flavor consistency, as well as piping hot pizza, despite the windy conditions at the Taste. Please visit Marco’s at 20305 Bruce B. Downs Blvd. in Live Oak to try this tasty treat! We will be celebrating the other Best of Taste winners during upcoming Chamber events, so stay tuned to our website for more information.
