The locally-based Pizzeria Uno Corporation plans to expand its quick-service brand Uno Due Go by a restaurant or two annually over the next three to five years, the company president and CEO recently told Boston Business Journal.
Currently, Uno Due Go has one standalone location, which opened in Downtown Crossing in 2011. It also has outposts on a couple university campuses, and it originated at the Dallas Fort Worth Airport. BBJ reports the concept is meant for city centers, where a sit-down meal may be less practical. Stone-baked pizzas, including Uno's signature deep-dish and a thin-crust version, are available; there are also sandwiches, panini, salads, and baked goods. The expansion will likely start with a new location in downtown Boston, according to BBJ.
Uno Chicago Pizzeria & Grill restaurants aren't going away: The BBJ article notes new full-service restaurants in suburban areas are planned at the same clip. A different suburban concept from the company was phased out earlier this year, though, when all three locations of Uno Fresco shuttered abruptly.
