Uno Restaurant Holdings Corp. operates 143 company-owned and franchise restaurants under the name Uno Chicago Grill. These restaurants are located in 28 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, South Korea and the United Arab Emirates.

Uno is best-known for its Chicago-style deep dish pizza but also serves steaks, ribs, pasta, grilled chicken, hamburgers and seafood. Restaurants also have a full bar.

The Company also operates fast casual Uno Dué Go cafés, a quick service concept called Uno Express, and Uno Foods, a consumer packaged foods business which supplies airlines, movie theaters, hotels, airports, travel plazas, schools and supermarkets with both frozen and refrigerated private-label foods and UNO branded products.

Uno is owned by Centre Partners, a private equity firm with offices in New York and Los Angeles.
