We here at Uncle Maddios wanted to take a moment and give a big thank you to all the customers, fans, groups and organizations that helped make our first year so successful.
We’re celebrating our first anniversary in this amazingly vibrant community. And as we reflect on what made the last year so wonderful, we can’t help but think how much we enjoyed meeting and getting to know everyone over great pizza and salads. It’s been a marvelous experience. Now we’re looking forward to another great year.
It’s been our honor to work and partner with great organizations, schools and companies. We partnered with one of Northwest Arkansas’ local non-profit organizations – Havenwood, an organization is dedicated specifically to helping single parent families in need, for Giving Tuesday.
Finding ways to connect with our youngest guests is a great joy for us. One of our favorite nights is Wednesdays when kids eat free. We are always so excited to see our young patrons enjoying their favorite Uncle Maddios menu item. And when we get a chance to help groups that help kids, we’re there!
We also supported the Janie Darr Elementary Jaguars with a fundraiser featuring pizza, salad, or cookie every Tuesday in April. Darr Elementary is ranked one of the top elementary schools in the state after opening in Fall 2013.
We teamed up with a lot of really terrific organizations who have a tremendous impact on the lives of those in this community. We worked with Arvest Bank for the One Million Meals Initiative aimed to feed our local neighbors and raise awareness about food insecurity. The goal of this initiative was to provide 1 million meals for food banks and local organizations.
Working with other companies and brands helps provide our guests with the best experience possible, hopefully with a unique twist that gets folks talking. In March, Core Brewery helped our guests who may have been unfamiliar with pairing the right beer and their favorite pizza. We provided helpful guide of the beer options for the Pie and Pint event as well as some of our picks for the perfect pizza to accompany! It was such fun.
We enjoyed hosting local breweries like Bike Rack Brewing Co., and we plan on expanding in to wine offerings in the coming year. And in promoting unique experiences, we paired with Black Apple Crossing, a growing brand in the Northwest Arkansas and the state’s ONLY cidery, for an evening of tasty tastings.
Really folks, there were so many wonderful organizations and companies that we wish we could name them all! We want Uncle Maddios to be a place where families can come for a great time and great food.
And last, but not least, a BIG thank you shout out to our AWESOME staff. You’re the sauce on our pizza…and we couldn’t do it without you!
