Norwood, MA | October 13, 2022 03:50 PM Eastern Daylight Time
The Grand Opening for Winer Park will take place on October 20th. The ribbon cutting with the local Chamber of Commerce will take place at 11AM. The new location will celebrate the occasion by offering $10 pizzas all day long for take-out and delivery. Included in the deal will be Large Cheese and Pepperoni Deep Dish Pizzas and XL Cheese and Pepperoni Chicago Thin Crust Pizzas. There will also be a raffle for all Take-out orders with a Free Pizza for a Year prize.
Pizzeria Uno, the iconic pizza restaurant chain, has opened its first ever Take-out and Delivery Only location. The restaurant is located at 2262 Aloma Dr. in Winter Park, FL and opened on August 25th. The location is the first of its kind for the restaurant chain and offers pizza and other menu items that can be picked up by guests or delivered to their homes. Unlike traditional Pizzeria Uno locations, which typically accommodate 100 to 200 guests, there is no seating at the new spot. The Pizzeria Uno in Winter Park will feature its legendary deep dish pizza and Chicago thin crust pizza as well as other popular take-out and delivery items such as wings, boneless bites, garlic cheesy bread and their trademark pizza skins. The menu will also include sandwiches, including the Chicago staple Italian beef sandwich and a home-made meatball sandwich, as well as calzones.
“We have always been a brand with strong delivery and pick up sales due to our awesome pizza and pizza-centric menu”, offered CEO Erik Frederick. “Take-out and delivery sales soared during the pandemic for us and have stayed at elevated levels ever since. Although the restaurants are seeing strong dine-in traffic again, the take-out and delivery orders have remained above our levels in the past. Consumers trends are changing and we are responding to their demands”.
The new Take-out and Delivery concept allows for the restaurant to provide its iconic deep dish pizza, Chicago thin crust pizza and other fantastic menu items in communities where a full serve restaurant may not quite fit, like downtown areas and congested suburban neighborhoods. The smaller footprint also allows for a less-expensive entry point into the Pizzeria Uno system.
In addition to the Winter Park location, a franchise Take-out and Delivery location is scheduled to open in the Chicago suburbs this year. “We see this as a great way to continue to expand the brand and deliver amazing pizza to more and more neighborhoods across the country. This is a fantastic multi-unit development opportunity to bring multiple locations to portions of the country that are currently not serviced by Unos” stated Frederick. With three new hotel restaurant Pizzerias Unos also opened in 2022 and more in the pipeline, Pizzeria Uno is poised to enter 2023 with multiple options for continued growth both for the company and for franchisees.
