Leading fast-casual pizza brand Uncle Maddio’s Pizza Joint is taking over the Panama City Beach, Fla., pizza scene when it opens its first restaurant in the beach community on May 28, 2015. The Atlanta-based build-your-own pizza concept is located at Pier Park North, 15750 Panama City Beach Parkway, Suite #180, Panama City Beach, FL 32413. This will be the first of three Uncle Maddio’s locations planned for the area. The restaurant will hold a grand opening celebration on May 30, 2015, and will serve free 9-inch, build-your-own, three-topping pizzas to guests in line from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
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. More than 30 menu items are made fresh daily in-house. For those with dietary restrictions, Uncle Maddio's serves up a huge selection of healthful options such as whole wheat and gluten-free crusts, hormone-free chicken, fresh local vegetables, Daiya vegan cheese and organic greens. Create-your-own signature salads and toasted Panini sandwiches round out the Italian-style menu. The restaurant also offers a selection of craft beers and wine.
“We can’t wait to open so we can win the hearts and stomachs of pizza lovers all over Panama City Beach and nearby communities,” said Tony Diez, Uncle Maddio’s franchisee and a Tampa native who also spent years living on the Gulf Coast. “We have something for everyone and hope to be the go-to meeting place for friends, families and visitors alike.”
The Panama City Beach, Fla., restaurant is owned and operated by husband and wife duo Tony and Jacque Diez. This is not the couple’s first time as restaurant franchise owners. The pair was previously in the restaurant business in the Midwest for more than 30 years.
The Diezs have relocated to the Panama City Beach area to operate the three Uncle Maddio’s locations they have planned.
“Our fresh ingredients and personalized pizza concept is the perfect fit for the Panama City Beach dining scene,” said Matt Andrew, CEO of Uncle Maddio’s. “Not only will Floridians love the flavor and freshness, but we think they will be impressed with how quickly our pizzas bake and the ease-of-ordering process.”
