About Uncle Maddio's

A fast casual leader has an epiphany. And a star is born.


Our CEO Matt Andrew has a knack for successful fast casual brands. Shortly after he sold his interest in Moe’s Southwest Grill, he was sitting on his deck pondering what his next venture should be. Where mere mortals might have dozed off or reached for a snack, Matt had an a-ha moment about the market for fast-casual pizza. After doing his research, he confirmed how un-tapped the market was. That began to set the wheels in motion for what would become the very first create-your-own fast casual pizza restaurant—Uncle Maddio’s Pizza.

Investors are clambering to get in on the next big thing.

Now 6 years later, Uncle Maddio’s is still going strong. One measure of the strength of our concept is that 90% of our Franchise Owners have multi-unit development agreements. Another is that multiple big name investors have invested in Uncle Maddio's. S&S Investment Group, early investors in a large national burger chain, will be developing restaurants in multiple states. In addition, Rutherford Seydel, attorney, conservationist, and business investor has acquired a minority share of Uncle Maddio's. Industry-watchers have taken notice, too, bestowing us with some pretty impressive accolades:


Nominee of NRN Hot Concepts “Top 50 Fast Casual Brands” (2014)
CEO ranked one of Fast Casual's "Top 25 Fast Casual Executives" (2015)
Winner of Fast Casual’s “100 Top Movers and Shakers” (2014 and 2015)
