Omaha’s Newest Pizza Joint: Coming Soon

Nebraska’s first Uncle Maddio’s Pizza Joint will open in Omaha this summer. The restaurant will offer made-to-order pizza, salad and sandwiches and will be the first of six units in Omaha, Bellevue and Lincoln as part of franchise-owner Shawn Simmonds’ multi-unit agreement.
