"I'm committed to making Uncle Maddio's the top pizza restaurant in Tallahassee," said Michael Holmes, Uncle Maddio's franchisee. "As we open new locations across the city, my goal is to introduce more people to the concept, and make it convenient to get delicious, homemade pizza with fresh ingredients no matter where you are in Tallahassee."

Holmes is an experienced Uncle Maddio's franchisee. He opened the first Tallahassee location at 3122 Mahan Dr. over two years ago. He is also developing the Orlando market and will open his first of three Orlando locations in the spring of 2016, making him one of the fastest growing Uncle Maddio's franchisees in Florida. The Orlando restaurant will open in the Waterford Lakes Town Center.

"This is going to be a big year for the brand as we open restaurants across Florida in 2016," said Matt Andrew, Uncle Maddio's CEO. "Michael is building a fantastic franchise business in the state and he will be a key partner as we expand our Florida footprint. Michael knocked it out of the park with his first Tallahassee restaurant and we anticipate him to do the same with the new location."
