KNOXVILLE, Tenn. – Northshore Town Center’s two newest tenants will be pleasing to the taste buds of many who visit this newly launched mixed-use community. One of the more popular destinations for burgers in Knoxville, Five Guys, will be joined by a newcomer to the market, Uncle Maddio’s Pizza Joint, where customers can “build their own pizza without getting their hands messy.”
“Both of these restaurants are first class and provide great customer service on top of delicious food,” said Tim Hickey, leasing agent for Northshore Town Center. “Now that the shopping center has opened with such success, we are excited to continue to build off of the momentum created and add additional restaurants and supporting retailers to this area.”
Uncle Maddio’s, the fastest-growing fast casual pizza restaurant in the Southeast will open their first Tennessee location at Northshore Town Center. The restaurant offers homemade pizzas, toasted paninis, and gourmet salads prepared with fresh ingredients and salad dressings that are made daily.
“We’re thrilled to open our first store in Tennessee – and in particular, in the award-winning, fast-growing city of Knoxville,” says Uncle Maddio’s Founder and Chief Pizza Maker Matt Andrew. “As the ‘Chipotle of pizza,’ Uncle Maddio’s is the next generation pizza joint. We serve made-to-order, cooked-from-scratch pizza with options customers won’t find anywhere else – with three types of crusts, six sauces, and more than 47 fresh toppings (including gluten-free, vegan, organic, and free-range), Uncle Maddio’s gives customers more than 3 million pizza-loving choices!”
No stranger to the Knoxville market, Five Guys will open their 6th location in the metro Knoxville area. “We are thrilled to be part of the Northshore Town Center and the local community,” said Sean Moore, franchisee of Five Guys Northshore. “As a local franchisee, we pride ourselves not only with the food we serve but also the community we serve!”
According to Moore, Five Guys serves fresh (never frozen) 100% All-American beef, which is hand-patted daily and cooked to order. Bread is baked and delivered fresh daily, while french fries, Idaho potatoes, are hand-cut throughout the day, cooked in 100% peanut-oil and cooked to order.
“We take pride in serving the best burgers/fries and anticipate this location will continue this trend,” added Moore. “We do one thing and concentrate on doing it well!”
