Uncle Maddio’s Pizza Named in 2016 Fast Casual Top 100 Movers & Shakers List

CHICAGO, IL (PRWEB) May 26, 2016 - Growing fast-casual pizza restaurant Uncle Maddio’s Pizza was awarded a top spot on the 2016 Fast Casual Top 100 Movers & Shakers list for a third year in a row. Fast Casual.com announced the winners Sunday night at an awards gala in Chicago, timed to coincide with the annual National Restaurant Association tradeshow.

“The idea behind our Movers and Shakers list is to recognize brands that are going beyond simply generating positive sales and unit growth,” said Cherryh Cansler, Editorial Director of FastCasual.com. “The process has a bit more subjectivity to it — to identify brands that are taking big risks and making fundamental changes that could dramatically shake up the fast casual status quo.”

This year’s list included 75 brands in which judges narrowed down from a pool of 900 nominations from FastCasual.com readers. Criteria included innovation, growth, social responsibility and overall contribution. The last 25 spots on the list went to the year’s most influential menu and technology trends as well as the industry’s most innovative marketing campaigns. The 2016 Fast Casual Top 100 Movers & Shakers publication is now available on fastcasual.com.

“Making this elite list of restaurants proves Uncle Maddio’s is at the top of our industry and, most important to us, a favorite gathering place and dining spot for our devoted guests, says Matt Andrew, CEO and Founder of Uncle Maddio’s. “Our brand is on fire right now, and the rest of 2016 is sure to be big for us.”

Since launching its aggressive growth plan in 2008, Uncle Maddio's has signed franchise agreements with 67 different entities in 18 states. Many of Uncle Maddio's franchisees have previous multi-unit experience with Jimmy John's, Firehouse Subs, Dairy Queen, McDonalds, Burger King, Krystal, Papa John's, Domino's, Golden Corral and Five Guys. Uncle Maddio's has 250 units in development.

Uncle Maddio's offers premium ingredients and more customization than any other fast-casual pizza chain. Guests choose from one of three crusts, including a gluten-free option, and 48 toppings including six sauces, 27 vegetables and 15 meats. Create-your-own signature salads and Foldwich sandwiches round out the Italian-style menu. The restaurant also offers a selection of craft beers and wine.
