Uno Pizzeria and Grill
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.
The new concept has signed on three franchisees in 2021 and has plans for continued expansion heading into 2022. In addition to the new stand-alone and in-line sites, hotel restaurant conversion, redevelopment and buildout has become a popular place of interest from early prospects.
The UNO brand and product play well within the hotel restaurant framework—offering multiple revenue stream possibilities. UNO is actively seeking franchisees to grow with this new pizza-centric concept worldwide. https://www.unos.com/
