Stewart Geyer, an aerospace engineer and Rhodes Scholar, has signed on to become the first Uncle Maddio's franchise operator in Texas. He joins Janie and Emily Stephens, trained chefs from Paris' Le Cordon Bleu, to expand the brand throughout the Lone Star State.

The first of five Uncle Maddio's is slated to open in Austin at 5601 Brodie Lane Suite 1200A in April. The team plans to open additional restaurants in Waco and Dallas by the end of 2014.

According to a news release, Geyer, Emily and Janie Stephens are all University of Texas alumni.

"The single most important thing that resonated with us is Uncle Maddio's 'Served with Love' mantra. It's what the founders and employees live by. It's instilled in managers and you see it truly come to life in the customer experience," Geyer said.

While completing his graduate degree in Atlanta, Stewart met founder Matt Andrew and Roger Wagerman and invested in the Uncle Maddio's concept.

The Uncle Maddio's Pizza Joint franchise operation is expanding with 165 units in development. Key expansion markets include Georgia, Alabama, Florida, Kentucky, North Carolina, South Carolina, Texas, Tennessee, Virginia and Washington, D.C.
