UNO Pizzeria & Grill, the restaurant chain known for its Chicago-style deep dish pizza, is introducing a new franchise concept that recreates the iconic look and feel of its original Pizzeria UNO Chicago location. The new model will offer franchisees a customizable floor plan that allows them to take advantage of existing space and is flexible to accommodate a variety of sizes. Franchisees will also have the ability to add additional takeout and delivery only locations to expand reach with minimal build-out costs. Pizzeria UNO debuted its first new-concept restaurant in June in Highland, Indiana to rave reviews and high initial sales.

Pizzeria UNO will showcase UNO’s strong pizza heritage and credibility, but with a vibe that’s more relaxed and reminiscent of your local pizza joint. A newly designed cooking process will allow for quicker pizza production time, leading to rapid customer turnaround time. Additionally, a more condensed, pizza-centric menu will offer customers UNO’s famous Deep Dish Pizza and a selection of the brand’s best-selling Chicago Thin Crust Pizza, as well as appetizers and salads.
