Additionally, Uncle Maddio’s will pick three of its favorite pizza creations to be featured during the second quarter as a limited time offer on menus at Uncle Maddio’s locations nationwide.

“Day after day our pizza makers see delicious creations from our guests that are good enough to be on the menu,” said Matt Andrew, CEO of Uncle Maddio’s. “This contest is a great way for us to celebrate and recognize our guests and their pizza making creativity. What better way to tell our story than from user-generated content?”
