Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) April 15, 2014
With 20 years of experience operating multiple Krystal restaurant locations in north Florida, Kevin Gartner is expanding his franchise operation portfolio signing on to develop five Uncle Maddio’s Pizza Joint locations. Bringing the original, and fastest growing fast casual pizza to Jacksonville and Gainesville, Fla, the company plans to open its first Uncle Maddio’s location in Jacksonville in late 2014.
“We looked into a number of fast casual restaurant franchises, and selected Uncle Maddio’s because the team has perfected the create-your-own pizza concept,” said Kevin Gartner, Uncle Maddio’s Pizza Joint franchisee. “Uncle Maddio’s consistently delivers delicious pizzas, paninis and salads, exceeding customer experience expectations – every time and at every location.”
A member of the Krystal’s franchise advisory council for 20 years, Kevin appreciates the transparency and systems developed by the Uncle Maddio’s franchise team. His team currently employs 165 employees and will utilize the 65 years of combined experience of this operation and administrative team, which will work with both concepts. Each new Uncle Maddio’s Pizza Joint location employs 25-30 employees.
“The value of a franchisor is their ability to set up their franchisees up for success,” said Kevin Gartner, Uncle Maddio’s franchisee. “The Uncle Maddio’s systems are a proven formula for the success of their franchisees. The Uncle Maddio’s team delivers phenomenal support developing the menu, recipes, promotions and new ideas, allowing franchisees to focus on operations and customer service.”
Building on the combined success of Matt Andrew with his experience as co-founder of Moe’s Southwest Grill, the Uncle Maddio’s Pizza Joint team knows how to provide the choices that consumers desire. The menu includes healthy alternatives with organic, gluten-free, whole wheat and fresh ingredients. Classic indulgent flavors for pizza and paninis are available complimenting the five million choices on the Uncle Maddio’s menu. Freshly grated cheeses, olive oil and homemade sauces are a part of the everyday, every location Uncle Maddio’s kitchen.
“Uncle Maddio’s serves healthy, fresh, flavorful pizzas, salads and paninis at affordable prices,” said Gartner.
Uncle Maddio’s consistently “Serves with Love,” currently operating 18 restaurants in six states. The Atlanta-based franchise is projecting to open 35 new units in 2014 with 165 additional locations already in development.
Uncle Maddio's pizzas, paninis and salads are customized, personalized and made-to-order for each individual patron. Most entrees are brought to customers’ tables in six minutes for under $7.
