Uncle Maddio’s Introduces New Menu Items, Design

The create-your-own pizza franchise, Uncle Maddio’s Pizza, has gone back to the drawing board, literally, to introduce a brand-new menu design as well as new menu items to maximize operations, expedite speed of service and highlight flavor-forward offerings.

The new menu design works to simplify the ordering process by featuring an illustrated, step-by-step guide for the “create-your-own” process. The addition of more photography of the hand-crafted salads and toasty Foldwiches better showcases the non-pizza options, and the callout “Maddio Monday”, Maddio Meals (at select locations) and “Lunch in 8 Minutes” deals seek to enhance guest satisfaction and build loyalty.

The new menu items include four on-trend and classic pizzas, renamed in the “Chef Creations” category:

Alfredo Artichoke: house-made alfredo sauce, mozzarella, artichoke hearts, spinach, red onions, baby bella mushrooms topped with shaved Parmesan cheese and a pesto drizzle

Mushroom Truffle: garlic-infused olive oil, shredded mozzarella and fontina cheese with prosciutto and mixed mushrooms, topped with arugula, a drizzle of truffle oil, lemon dressing and shaved Parmesan

Classic Margherita: garlic-infused olive oil, shredded and fresh mozzarella, sliced roma tomatoes, salt, pepper and fresh basil

Four Cheese: garlic-infused olive oil, shredded and fresh mozzarella, ricotta and fontina cheese with a blend of Italian spices

Also included are updates to many of the recipes for Uncle Maddio’s hand-crafted salads and Foldwiches, innovative toasted sandwich made with homemade pizza dough and loaded with a selection of meats, cheeses, fresh vegetables and homemade sauces.

“We pride ourselves on staying on top of the latest food trends and delivering guest-satisfaction,” says Uncle Maddio’s Founder and CEO, Matt Andrew. “Our Served with Love guarantee encourages guests to be adventurous and to try something new. But these menu offerings will no doubt appeal to adventure-seekers and traditionalists alike. With almost 50 menu toppings, 3 crusts and 7 sauces to choose from, you really can’t go wrong.”

In addition to the new menu, Uncle Maddio’s is launching a comprehensive loyalty program—Maddio’s Rewards—targeting new and existing loyalty members. Upon sign-up for the rewards program, guests will receive a free 3 topping, 9-inch pizza. With every additional entrée purchase, 1 point is earned—and with a total of 10 points, guests receive a free entrée of their choice. Maddio’s Rewards members will also receive birthday, anniversary and other surprise and delight promotions via email and/or text messaging.
