Uncle Maddio’s Pizza Joint Opening First North Dakota Location

Restaurant Will Open in Minot, N.D. Today with Additional Locations to Follow

June 26, 2014 // Franchising.com // ATLANTA – North Dakota will get its first Uncle Maddio's Pizza Joint location when the restaurant opens in Minot, N.D. today. North Dakota residents Troy and Jamie Mattern will open the franchise at 3310 16th Street SW at Southgate Crossing. This will be the first build your own fast casual pizza concept in North Dakota and the first of four Uncle Maddio's to open in the state.

The opening of the Minot, N.D. Uncle Maddio's location marks the culmination of a longtime goal for the couple. The Matterns dreamed of owning their own business for years and spent countless hours searching for the right opportunity. They discovered Uncle Maddio's, met the Uncle Maddio's leadership team, and knew it was the perfect franchise and partnership for them to join. They especially loved what the brand stands for and its "Served with Love" philosophy.

"When we visited our first Uncle Maddio's location and met with the executive team, we immediately felt right at home," said Jamie Mattern, North Dakota franchisee. "We are the parents of four pizza loving kids and Uncle Maddio's is the perfect dining spot for families like ours."

The Matterns live in Fargo, N.D. where husband Troy is the head coach for the Fargo South High School Bruins football team and wife Jamie is a stay-at-home-mom. The couple chose to open in Minot, N.D. first after they found a great location in the Southgate Crossing shopping center. They plan to open a second location in Fargo, N.D. later this year with two more locations opening in the state in the near future.

"This will be the first time the fast casual build-your-own pizza concept comes to North Dakota," said Troy Mattern, franchisee. "We think our fellow North Dakotans will love the great tasting and limitless options available at Uncle Maddio's."

Uncle Maddio's offers a made-from-scratch 9-inch individual pizza with up to three toppings, baked in 6-minutes, for $7.99. Guests choose one of three crusts, including whole wheat and gluten-free options, and have the choice of 48 toppings - six homemade sauces, 27 vegetables and 15 meats. Guests can also order one of the chain's chef-prepared pizzas, along with "take and bake" options for the Uncle Maddio's experience at home.

The menu also features create-your-own salads and signature salads, such as Greek, Tuscan Antipasto, and Santa Fe, all with homemade dressings. Toasted panini sandwiches round out the Italian-style menu.

For those with dietary restrictions or specifications, Uncle Maddio's serves up a huge selection of healthful options like whole wheat and gluten free crusts, hormone-free chicken, fresh local vegetables, Daiya vegan cheese and organic greens.
