New Uno to Feature Curbside Delivery, Kids Make Their Own Pizza and School Partners Program

BOSTON (March 18, 2005) - Uno Restaurant Holdings Corp. announces the opening of its 31st Uno Chicago Grill restaurant in New York. The new Uno Chicago Grill is located at the new Towne Center retail complex off Ridge and Holt Road in Webster. The store will officially open for business on Monday, March 28th. The hours of operation are 11:00am to 11:00pm on Sunday through Thursday and 11:00am to 1:00pm on Friday and Saturday.

"We are proud to be part of the Webster community and are excited to open another Uno Chicago Grill in New York," 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 popular, juicy steaks on the menu as well."

The newly built Uno Chicago Grill is 6,000 square feet, seats 185 guests and will open with 140 employees. The restaurant will look and feel like a newly renovated Chicago warehouse, with Windy City memorabilia decorating the walls and mahogany trim throughout the bar. In addition to serving a full menu including their new Kids Make Their Own Pizza, Curbside Delivery service will be available.

To further involvement and commitment to the Webster community, the new restaurant will offer Uno's School Partner Program. The program includes several educational events, like free Pizza Maker Field Trips and fundraising opportunities for local schools and community organizations.

The new Uno will be run by Managing Partner Dennis Behr, a 3-year Uno veteran manager who lives with his family in Webster. "Uno Chicago Grill provides a high quality casual dining experience and offers the best food around," said Behr. "In addition, we believe that the convenience of curbside delivery will be big hit with on-the-go Webster-area guests."

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 32 states, the District of Columbia, 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.
