UNO® IS "FALL OF SURPRISES" WITH NEW TELEVISION AD CAMPAIGN STARRING CRANBERRIES AND PUMPKINS TO SPOTLIGHT LIMITED-TIME-ONLY MENU

Boston, MA, October 15, 2009 - "Helloooo short ribs!" says the pumpkin to a plate of delicious-looking short ribs. This amusing new character is just one of the "food" stars in Uno Chicago Grill's® newest television advertising campaign developed to increase awareness for the brand's limited-time-only fall menu.

The campaign, developed by Full Contact Advertising in Boston, features a deep-voiced pumpkin and a snarky cranberry in a memorable series of :05 and :15 spots. The commercials will run through mid-November in Boston, Norfolk, and Providence, although the special menu is available nationally.

"Fall means cooler weather and comfort food. We've focused on flavor in a memorable way with an array of new seasonal dishes such as boneless beef short ribs with fresh pappardelle, Kabocha pumpkin soup and pumpkin tiramisu. We also feature items with a high regard for nutrition, like our all-natural, five-grain crust harvest vegetable flatbread pizza and a power salad with sliced chicken breast, spinach, and a 'power mix' of goji berries, Thompson raisins, soy nuts, almonds, pepitas and Ocean Spray® Sweetened Dried Cranberries," said UNO® CEO Frank Guidara.

"We want customers to come into our restaurant, taste one of these new dishes, and feel they've found 'comfort central'."
