Uno Chicago Grill got its start in 1943 at the corner of Ohio and Wabash in downtown Chicago, quickly becoming famous for its deep-dish pizza. Today, there are more than 150 Uno Chicago Grill restaurants in 24 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, South Korea, United Arab Emirates, Honduras, Kuwait and Saudi Arabia. In 2008, the company launched its Uno Due Go fast casual concept. Uno Due Go focuses on organic, natural and locally sourced ingredients, and includes made-to-order and ready-to-go menu items. Last year, the company inked the largest franchise deal in its history, calling for the opening of 30 Uno Due Go locations throughout Texas. This month, Uno's parent company named Ian Baines as its new president and CEO. Baines most recently served as senior vice president of Strategic Innovation at Brinker International and Chili's Grill and Bar.
