Manco and Manco Pizza

Business Information
Name of Organization: 
Manco and Manco Pizza
Organization Type: 
Business Description: 
Manco & Manco Pizza opened their first pizza parlor at 918 Boardwalk in the summer of 1956. A few years later they opened another store at 7th Street and the Boardwalk. Frank Manco and his wife Kay opened a third store at 12th Street in the late ’80’s. Although it seems there is a pizza parlor on every corner in Ocean City today with new ones opening every season, Manco & Manco is never afraid of the competition and attributes the endurance of Manco & Manco to their consistency. “It’s our consistency that makes the clock turn,” says Kay Manco, “and our survival stems from our loyal customers who come back year after year.” With Kay and Frank’s daughter Mary and her husband Chuck Bangle, a third generation is continuing the business in the same tradition. One of Manco & Manco’s traditions is making the pizza fresh in front of the customers, with the pie maker putting on an entertaining show for the customers, twirling the pizza dough in the air to stretch it. “We have been very fortunate to have such good employees,” Kay adds. Manco & Manco have expanded their menu since 1956 when plain pizza and soda were the only things on the menu. Besides the traditional thin and crispy cheese and tomato sauce pizza, we now provide a variety of new offerings, like Venetian pizza with whole sliced Jersey tomatoes and a number of other toppings such as broccoli and spinach along with the old favorites like pepperoni and sausage. Our menu may have changed over the years, but one thing has never changed at Manco & Manco – their dedication to providing their customers with the freshest, hottest, crispiest and tastiest pizza possible. An Ocean City tradition you can always count on.

Management and Leadership
Provide Environmentally Preferable Products Services
Description of Action: 
Environmentally Friendly Products: Manco and Manco offers compostable straws made from renewable resources and no longer provides plastic single-use straws to customers. The 18” Pizza boxes, napkins, and paper towels are all made from recycled materials. Manco and Manco uses environmentally friendly cleaning products such as Simple Green. Simple Green is a non-toxic biodegradable all-purpose cleaner.
Waste Reduction
Description of Action: 
Reducing Supply Chain Waste: Manco and Manco is always looking for new ways to reduce their waste. Management negotiated with a supplier to have the labels for tomato sauce cans and their plastic wrapping left off in the manufacturing process. This is a win-win for the business and the environment. Manco and Manco saves on waste hauling costs by eliminating the labels and plastic shrink wrap as a source of waste for the business. The supplier agreed to reduce the price of the cans with no labels. Manco and Manco also saves on the time spent by its employees no longer having to remove the labels and plastic from the cans. Cans with no labels and no plastic have a positive impact on the environment by reducing the amount of waste sent to the landfill. Management is focused on eliminating excess packaging in all aspects of it’s business. Another supplier recently agreed to package spinach in larger quantities, reducing the amount of plastic headed to the landfill. During the busy season (May to October), Manco and Manco purchases and uses an unfathomable amount of supplies in its business operations. These sustainable practices may seem minor but aggregated the impact is substantial. Reducing Operational Waste: Management made receipts for take-out available upon request. Take-out is a huge part of the company’s business. Manco and Manco also operates on a completely paperless payroll system administered by ADP. Both actions add up to a significant reduction in paper waste.

Waste Reuse
Description of Action: 
Re-usable Souvenir Cups & Tumblers: Manco and Manco sells "Re-usable Souvenir Cups" with $1.00 refills, valid for the entire year. Manco and Manco also sell Tumblers with $1.00 refills. The alternatives initially cost more than a regular soft drink but offer substantial savings in the long-term for repeat customers. The Souvenir Cups and the Tumblers eliminate the waste produced by a normal paper cup. Manco and Manco is located on the Ocean City boardwalk directly off the beach. Often, customers will come in just for a refill because of the business's proximity to the beach. This is added revenue for the business and less waste hauled off to the landfill. A win-win-win for the business, the customer, and the environment.
