Local Brothers Opening First Uncle Maddio's Pizza in Lexington this Friday

Uncle Maddio's will open its first Lexington, Ky. location this Friday, February 26. The restaurant is owned and operated by local Lexington brothers Todd, Matt and Robb Sackett, along with business partner Billy White. To celebrate the opening and thank the community for its support, the restaurant will serve free pizza to guests in line from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, February 27. The restaurant is located at 630 Euclid Avenue.

The restaurant seats close to 100 people and has garage-style doors that will open in warm weather. For guests looking for a quick bite and only want a slice, the restaurant will also offer a walk-up window to purchase single slices of the popular New York-style pizza.

Uncle Maddio's is a next generation pizza restaurant that lets guests build their own pizza exactly how they want it and cooked in fast baked ovens and served to their tables in about six minutes. Guests choose from one of three crusts, including a delicious gluten-free option, and 48 toppings, including six sauces, 27 vegetables, and 15 meats. Everything is fresh, from the pizza dough and sauce that's made in-store each day to the wide variety of veggies. For guests looking to expand their pizza horizons, Uncle Maddio's also offers signature pizzas ranging from the meaty Big Max to the spicy Jamaican Jerk. Create-your-own salads and Foldwich™ sandwiches round out the Italian-inspired menu. The restaurant also offers a selection of craft beers and wine.

"The Lexington community has a lot of choices when dining out, but we think Uncle Maddio's will become their favorite," said Billy White, Uncle Maddio's franchisee. "The Uncle Maddio's New York-style thin crust pizza is Americans' favorite, and with our fast service and fresh ingredients, we plan to win over families, friends, busy lunchtime diners, and any other guest that wants to join us."

White and the Sackett brothers have signed on for two more Uncle Maddio's locations for the greater Lexington area. The franchisees are experienced leaders in the local restaurant scene and already own 11 Jimmy Johns around Lexington.

"The franchise team of Billy White and the Sackkets are only just starting to build a great Uncle Maddio's Pizza presence in Lexington," said Matt Andrew, Uncle Maddio's CEO. "With their experience and local ties, they are sure to become the top choice for fast-casual pizza places in Lexington."
