NEW UNO CHICAGO GRILL OPENS IN DICKSON CITY

New Uno to Feature Curbside Delivery, Low-Carbohydrate Options and School Partners Program

Boston (September 17, 2004) – Uno Restaurant Holdings Corp. announces the opening of its 12th Uno Chicago Grill restaurant in Pennsylvania. The new Uno Chicago Grill is located at 3905 Commerce Boulevard. The store will officially open for business on Monday, September 20. The hours of operation are Monday through Thursday 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 a.m., Friday and Saturday 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 a.m., Sunday 12:00 p.m. to 12:00 a.m., with the lounge open daily until 1:30 a.m.
“We are proud to be part of the Dickson City community and are excited to open another Uno Chicago Grill in Pennsylvania,” said Uno President and Chief Operating Officer Paul MacPhail. “Although our guests may already know and love our famous Chicago-style deep dish pizza, they’ll be pleased to find items like our Chicken Spinoccoli and Lemon Basil Salmon on the menu as well.”

The newly built Uno Chicago Grill is 5,900 square feet, seats 224 guests and will open with 165 employees. The restaurant will look and feel like an old Chicago warehouse, with Windy City memorabilia decorating the walls and mahogany trim throughout the bar. In addition to serving a full menu including new low-carbohydrate options, curbside delivery take-out service will be available.

To enhance their commitment to the Dickson City community, the new restaurant will offer Uno’s School Partner Program. The program includes several educational events, like free Pizza Maker Parties and fundraising opportunities for local schools and community organizations.

The new Uno will be run by General Manager Joe Kenney. “We believe that the variety of the Uno Chicago Grill menu, including the new low-carbohydrate items and the Kids Make Their Own Pizza option, will be a big hit with Dickson City-area guests,” said Joe Kenney. “In addition, we believe that the convenience of curbside delivery will also be popular.” The restaurant partners are John Metz, Paul (Chip) Siegel and Frank Bevevino of Uno Management, LLC, licensed franchisee of Uno Restaurants since 1981. The franchise group is operated by Tom Hannigan and Chris Siegel. The group owns and operates Uno Chicago Grill locations in Philadelphia, Conshohocken-Plymouth Meeting and Wilkes Barre, Pennsylvania.

In 2003, the restaurant known for its Chicago Original Deep Dish Pizza™ evolved its name from Pizzeria Uno to Uno Chicago Grill to reflect the variety of its menu. Today, Uno Chicago Grill has the same great pizza, but also offers a complete casual dining menu, including ribs, seafood, juicy burgers and steaks, innovative pasta dishes, scrumptious appetizers, low-carbohydrate alternatives and desserts.

The company continues to earn accolades from industry and business publications. In 2003, Uno Chicago Grill was named by Entrepreneur Magazine as the #1 franchise opportunity in their category. The company also was selected by Franchise Times as one of the top 20 companies to watch in 2003.


Based in Boston, Uno Restaurant Holdings Corp. currently has a system of more than 200 company-owned and franchise full service units. Uno Chicago Grill restaurants are located in 33 states, Puerto Rico, South Korea and the United Arab Emirates. The company also operates a consumer foods division, which supplies airlines, movie theaters, hotel restaurants and supermarkets with both frozen and refrigerated private label foods and branded Uno products.
