Uncle Maddio's Pizza Joint plans aggressive growth in the Florida market this year, beginning with its first location in Tallahassee in May.
Currently, there are 18 more Florida locations in development in Jacksonville, Tallahassee and Tampa. By the end of 2013, Uncle Maddio's expects to add development plans in Orlando, Gainesville, Miami and Southwest Florida markets.
"In the next eight years, we will have 100 franchise locations open across Florida. It's an aggressive statement, but it's a testament to the popularity of our locations in Atlanta, Kentucky, and North and South Carolina. When we open a new restaurant, people are literally lined up outside the door," said Matt Andrew, Uncle Maddio's founder and chief pizza maker.
The Tallahassee Uncle Maddio's Pizza Joint will be located in the new Mahan Village center at 3122 Mahan Drive.
