Uno Chicago Grill® Continues Its Expansion in Virginia
BOSTON, MA, May 1, 2008 - Uno Chicago Grill®, recently named America's healthiest chain restaurant by Health magazine, has opened its newest restaurant in Prince George, Virginia. Franchise partner Chris Andreano, of Richmond-based ADC Development, currently owns and operates three Uno® restaurants in Virginia: Sandston, Chester and Midlothian. Following the successful opening of the original locations, ADC signed an expanded agreement with Uno Chicago Grill to open three additional restaurants in the Richmond Virginia market, including this week's opening in Prince George.
As several notable national restaurant chains announce delays in their plans for growth, Uno Chicago Grill has recently signed several franchise agreements that will deliver 30 new restaurants over the next five years in Florida, Pennsylvania, Ohio, California, and Virginia. The chain is also expanding internationally.
The Prince George restaurant employs over 130 employees and sports a menu with over 100 items, including its legendary deep dish pizza. The restaurant design and initial training features the newest "Uno Plus" enhancements first introduced in the Swampscott, Massachusetts and Winter Garden, Florida locations. Uno Plus enhancements include upgraded, experiential graphics and modern building design as their most notable features, as well as an emphasis on staff training, hospitality and service refinements.
"We are very pleased with our restaurant teams and our success with the Uno brand, and we look forward to continued growth in the Richmond area," states Chris Andreano.
The Colonial Heights staff donated their tips during initial training to Chesterfield Colonial Heights Alliance for Social Ministry (CCHASM).
