Atlanta-based build-your-own pizza chain Uncle Maddio’s Pizza Joint is coming to Lee Branch mall.
Franchise owner Sha Nateghi confirmed the fast-casual chain has signed a 2,700-square-foot lease for Suite 100 at the U.S. 280 mall.
Nateghi said he thinks the Birmingham market will respond well to the build-your-own pizza concept that has been growing fast nationwide among a number of chains.
“It’s a great market that deserves options,” Nateghi said of Birmingham. “It’s a market that doesn’t have this type of concept in it.”
Harbert Realty Services represented the tenant in the lease, and Retail Specialists represented the landlord.
Nateghi said the restaurant will seat around 80, serve wine and beer and also offer catering services.
Nateghi said he hopes to open by early June.
