Uncle Maddio’s Pizza Joint, the fast casual industry’s next generation pizza joint, announces expansion to a 30– unit chain. Uncle Maddio’s is the brainchild of Matt Andrew, one of five founding members and former president of Moe’s Southwest Grill.
Andrew, a proven industry veteran, managed Moe’s explosive growth to 375 franchise restaurants in seven years. Moe’s, a 2004 Nation’s Restaurant News HOT CONCEPTS award winner, was sold to FOCUS Brands Inc., franchisor of Carvel, Schlotzsky’s, Cinnabon, McAlister’s, and Wing Stop, in August 2007.
Andrew and his team are creating a new market for fast casual, authentic homemade pizza, gourmet salads and toasted subs, by “blazing the trail in fast casual, homemade pizza.”
