This is Tappin’s first Uncle Maddio’s restaurant but not his first foray in the restaurant industry. He has spent his career working for iconic restaurant brands such as McDonald’s and Einstein Bagels. At McDonald's, Tappin was responsible for the launch of the 'i'm loving it' campaign and served as Chief of Staff to the McDonald’s President and COO. He also was the Chief Marketing Officer of Einstein Bagels. Tappin returns to the area to bring his extensive experience and best practices to the local restaurant scene.
“After a long career in the restaurant business, I am ready to take on a new challenge as a franchise owner,” said Craig Tappin, Uncle Maddio’s franchisee. “I was so impressed by the fresh ingredients and homemade pizza, as well as the management team that has set up a franchise operating system designed for success. I knew it was the perfect opportunity for me to bring Uncle Maddio’s to my hometown. I have always planned to return to Denver and now is the right time to do so.”
“The greater Denver area is an important market for our company," said Matt Andrew, Uncle Maddio's CEO. "Craig Tappin is an experienced restauranteur and well-respected industry leader, which makes the Castle Rock restaurant the perfect place to launch Uncle Maddio's new design."
Uncle Maddio’s is the first fast casual pizza brand to introduce a customer journey experience where customers order and pay first. The new design allows flexibility for customers to either order, pay and sit down at their table or order pay and watch their pizza being made in Uncle Maddio’s open kitchen.
Guests will use the simplified digital media boards and vibrant food photography to select a Create Your Own, Chef’s Creation pizza, salad or Foldwich. The new menu boards allow the restaurant to change the menu according to day parts and offers.
