NEW DINING OPTIONS AT UNO CHICAGO GRILL TARGET BUSY LIFESTYLES

Legendary Restaurant Chain is Redefining Convenient Cuisine

BOSTON (November 16, 2004) - Convenient cuisine no longer has to be hard to swallow. Uno Chicago Grill of is now offering busy consumers three delicious, easy alternatives to traditional fast food: Curbside Delivery, Quicklunches and Online Ordering.

"We recognize that eating on the run is part of America's busy lifestyle," said Dan Wheeler, vice president of marketing for Uno Chicago Grill. "We're addressing the time management and nutritional needs of residents by offering Uno's great meals in quick, convenient ways."

For over 60 years, Uno Chicago Grill has been known for its legendary pizza, friendly service and comfortable dining. "While we always enjoy seeing our neighbors relaxing in the restaurant," Wheeler said, "we understand that sometimes it's preferable to eat at home or in the office. We're happy to accommodate our customers, and know they'll enjoy our food, no matter where they dine."

Uno's complete menu, including ribs, seafood, juicy burgers and steaks, innovative pasta dishes, appetizers and desserts, and even low-carbohydrate entrees, is always available for takeout. "We've enhanced our menu, and now we're enhancing our commitment to the community by offering more convenient dining options," Wheeler said.

Curbside Delivery

Curbside Delivery takes the drive-through lane to the next level. Simply call the Uno Chicago Grill, place your order, and state the brand of car you're driving. A designated parking space is assigned, and your food, perfectly packed to go, is brought out to you upon arrival.

"This is an ideal option for working parents, families with young children, and anyone who just wants to have a delicious meal ready at a moment's notice," said Wheeler. "Commuters get a fresh meal without leaving the comfort of the car or waiting in tedious lines."

Quicklunches

When lunch hour is really a rush hour, Uno offers Quicklunches, to satisfy the appetite as well as the time crunch.

Diners choose from a selection of menu items, guaranteed to be ready to go within 10 minutes. All items are cooked to order. Quicklunches are available Monday through Friday, 11 am to 3 pm.

"We don't think anyone should ever skip a meal, no matter how rushed," Wheeler said. "Missing a meal impairs your ability to concentrate and results in decreased productivity. Uno is making sure busy workers are well fed and recharged."

Online Ordering

The computer industry estimates that over 185 million Americans use the Internet. In response to today's cyber-savvy world, computer users now have the convenience of ordering an Uno Chicago Grill meal online. Visit www.unos.com, click on their city link, browse through menus and use the "order" links to add items to your cart. Users can recall previously saved orders and give special instructions (extra ketchup, etc.) in the boxes provided. Online ordering is for Takeout only.
