Uno Chicago Grill's Largest Franchisee Opens 8th Unit in Pennsylvania
BOSTON, MA, October 13, 2008 - Uno Chicago Grill®, recently named America's healthiest chain restaurant by Health magazine, opened its newest restaurant today at the Neshaminy Mall in Bensalem, PA. Franchise Partners Tom and Angella Bock of The Bock Group also own and operate seven other Uno® restaurants in Pennsylvania and New Jersey and are Uno's largest multi-unit franchisees. The Bock Group has also secured the real estate to open two more Uno restaurants: one in Newton Square, PA and the other in Oaks, PA.
The Neshaminy Uno is the first of six new Uno restaurants to open within the next 45 days all over the world. Included in this group is the greatly-anticipated launch of Uno's newest fast-casual brand -- Uno Due Go -- which will open two units in DFW Airport in Dallas. Additionally, three more full-service Uno Chicago Grills will open in Dammam, Saudi Arabia; Kuwait City, Kuwait, and a premier location at the Mall of Dubai, soon to be the world's largest mall. All of these restaurants will be open by mid-November. Uno stands out as one of the few restaurant companies continuing to aggressively develop new locations despite constricted capital markets.
The Neshaminy Mall Uno restaurant in Bensalem, PA provides jobs for over 130 people and features a menu with over 100 items, including steaks, salads, burgers and, of course, its legendary deep dish pizza. The restaurant design and initial training features the newest "Uno Plus" enhancements first introduced at openings held earlier this year in Massachusetts, Florida and Virginia. Uno Plus enhancements include upgraded, experiential graphics and modern building design as their most notable features, as well as emphasis on staff training, hospitality and service refinements.
"We are big believers in the Uno Brand and offerings, and our restaurant teams look forward to continued growth in the Philadelphia area," states Tom Bock.
