Searching for a franchise to build their business, Troy and Jamie Mattern found Uncle Maddio’s Pizza Joint, and they are bringing the concept to North Dakota. Signing a four-location multiunit development agreement, the Matterns plan to own and operate Uncle Maddio’s Pizza Joint in several locations, focusing first on Minot and Fargo. They project to open the first two Uncle Maddio’s locations in North Dakota during the second half of 2014.
“We discovered Uncle Maddio’s and knew it was the perfect opportunity for Troy and I to start and grow our own business,” says Jamie Mattern, Uncle Maddio’s Pizza Joint franchisee. “Uncle Maddio’s is a one-of-a-kind, fun, fast, family friendly, and affordable restaurant. We are very excited to bring something completely new and unique to North Dakota.”
With 18 restaurants in six states, the Atlanta-based Uncle Maddio's team is working with franchisees preparing to open an additional 35 new units this year. Serving personalized pizzas, salads, and panini sandwiches, Uncle Maddio’s boasts more than 5 million choices.
“The create-your-own personalized meal is perfect for North Dakotans. We are excited that when our guests eat at Uncle Maddio’s not only will they be able to create a pizza with endless possibilities but also chose from gourmet salads and fresh paninis,” Mattern says.
Uncle Maddio's pizzas are customizable, made-to-order, and served up in just six minutes for under $7. Customized pizzas start with the selection from three crust choices, including traditional, whole wheat, and gluten free. Forty-eight toppings include six homemade sauces, 27 vegetables, and 15 meats.
“We are thrilled to continue opening new Uncle Maddio’s locations in new Midwestern states,” says chief pizza maker Matt Andrew. “Our motto is ‘Served with Love,’ and that is in the DNA of North Dakota residents. We know our new North Dakota franchisees and team members are guaranteed to provide the service-oriented experience we instill at every Uncle Maddio’s Pizza Joint.”
