Uncle Maddio's Pizza Joint, once called the "Chipotle of Pizza," is bringing their brand of fast-casual, personal pies to Mount Pleasant. The big draw for these establishments is that customers can dictate exactly what they want on their pizza, while peering into containers of ingredients (much like a Subway or Chipotle), the employees pop it in the oven, and it's ready in 10 minutes.
Uncle Maddio's will be located in Towne Centre Plaza on Highway 17. The doors unlock to the public on February 12. The grand opening is on February 14, and from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., and the restaurant will give away free nine-inch, three topping pizzas to all customers in line. Free Valentine's Day lunch for the frugal gourmets out there.
Local franchisees David Moulton and father Bruce Moulton plan to establish two other Uncle Maddio's in the area, including a space in North Charleston.
