Opening Marks Twenty-Sixth Uno’s Restaurant in the State

BOSTON (March 11, 2003) - Uno Restaurant Holdings Corp., known for Chicago’s Original Deep Dish Pizza™, announces the opening of its 192nd Uno Chicago Grill restaurant at 880 – Route 9 (across from Wal-Mart).

“We are proud to be part of the Queensbury community and are excited to open another location in New York,” said Uno President and Chief Operating Officer Paul MacPhail. “We continue to add innovative, high-quality items to our grill menu, and of course, Queensbury customers know and love the famous Uno Chicago Original Deep Dish Pizza.”

The restaurant is owned and operated by David and Chandra Kapoor, restaurateurs who also own the Uno location in Saratoga, New York. “Uno has the best food around and I am pleased to be able to open an Uno Chicago Grill in the Warren County district,” said David Kapoor.
