Portfolio:
Based in Boston, Uno Restaurant Holdings Corporation includes over 160 company-owned and franchised full-service Uno Chicago Grill units located in 24 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, South Korea, United Arab Emirates, Honduras, Kuwait and Saudi Arabia. The company also operates a fast casual concept called Uno Dué Go®, a quick serve concept called Uno Express®, and a consumer foods division which supplies airlines, movie theaters, hotels, airports, travel plazas, schools and supermarkets with both frozen and refrigerated private-label foods and branded Uno products.

Company Strategy:
The objective of Uno Restaurant Holdings Corporation is to reinforce its distinctive niche as the only full-service, casual dining restaurant with Original Chicago Deep Dish Pizza and a full-range, high quality grill menu. By consistently delivering outstanding value to customers, the company is confident it can reach and satisfy more customers and expand into new markets, thus achieving the goal of continued growth.

Founded:
Pizzeria Uno began in 1943 when Ike Sewell invented the Original Chicago Deep Dish Pizza. In 1978, Aaron Spencer gained Sewell’s approval to expand the concept to other markets. Spencer opened his first Uno restaurant in Boston the following year.

Today, the menu has evolved to offer hip and intense new tastes in addition to the famous Chicago-style deep dish pizza. With a new menu comes a new name, Uno Chicago Grill. The new Uno Chicago Grill locations are larger and feature a “Chicago warehouse” look that creates an inviting dining environment.
