Pizzeria Uno Celebrates its 80th Anniversary as the Birthplace of Chicago’s beloved Deep Dish Pizza

UNO Pizzeria & Grill

This December, Pizzeria Uno (known informally as Uno’s) will celebrate its 80 th anniversary which also commemorates the 80 th birthday of the introduction of Chicago Deep Dish Pizza. Pizzeria Uno and its iconic location at the corner of Ohio and Wabash in downtown Chicago are universally regarded as the birthplace of Deep Dish pizza which has become a staple of the Chicago and American food landscape. To mark the occasion, Pizzeria Uno will host an 80 th Anniversary party at its downtown Chicago location on December 4 th at 6PM. The invite-only party will include entertainment, giveaways, pizza-making demonstrations and, of course, plenty of deep dish pizza for sampling. Included on the guest list is former Chicago Bear player and current sports radio host Tom Waddle. “I have been a long-time fan of Pizzeria Uno. It started back in my days at Boston College in Boston where I used to frequent the locations there with my then girlfriend who is now my wife. It’s such an iconic brand and the deep dish pizza has always been amazing. To think that it all started in this small brownstone building here in Chicago 80 years ago is amazing”. The deep dish story is an integral part of the rich Chicago food scene. In 1943, former University of Texas football star Ike Sewell and his friend WWII G.I. Ric Ricardo opened the flagship Pizzeria Uno Restaurant at its current location in the River North neighborhood of Chicago, Illinois. As legend has it, the deep-dish pizza was born when the two experimented in the kitchen creating a “pizza pie” or the thick upside-down pizza that became known as the Chicago deep dish pizza. It wasn’t long before people were lining up at the door, so Sewell opened a second restaurant in response to Pizzeria Uno’s popularity, Pizzeria Due, which is one block away. In 1963, Ike then opened the historically relevant Su Casa, a Mexican restaurant, as a passion project. The legend of Pizzeria Uno was introduced to the rest of the US and the world starting in 1978 when entrepreneur Aaron Spencer, a Massachusetts resident and prominent businessman, purchased the franchise rights to the restaurant and brand. Spencer opened the first franchise location in Boston with an expanded menu to attract an even broader crowd. The restaurant added locations to as many as 20 states and multiple countries. Pizzeria Uno deep dish pizza is currently enjoyed in over 80 locations worldwide. Pizzeria Uno General Manager, Robert Komar, is proud of the mark that Pizzeria Uno has left on the food scene in Chicago. “To come to work each day knowing that this building here on the corner of Ohio and Wabash is the birthplace of deep dish pizza is an incredible feeling. Deep dish pizza, which is woven into the fabric of the Chicago and American food culture, is such an iconic part of this city. People come from all over the world to experience it here in this beautiful building. We are so proud to be part of the legacy here and will continue to serve up deep dish for another 80 years.” About UNO Pizzeria & Grill Based in Boston, Massachusetts, Uno Restaurant Holdings Corporation includes approximately 80 company-owned and franchised UNO Pizzeria & Grill restaurants located in 18 states, and the District of Columbia, India, and Saudi Arabia. UNO is all about connecting people over pizza – from its famous Chicago Deep Dish, which UNO invented in 1943, to its Chicago Thin Crust, to its gluten-free and vegan pizzas.

Introducing the 2023 Airbnb Winter Release: Making hosting even easier this holiday season


Have you ever considered boosting your income while you're away visiting your loved ones for the holidays? Hosts across the us have been sharing their spaces on Airbnb for well over a decade and it is proving to be a vital tool to earn extra income. Recently, Airbnb Superhost, Stephanie Goodloe conducted a satellite media tour to talk about the Airbnb 2023 Winter Release and her experience hosting on Airbnb. A video accompanying this announcement is available at: On November 8, following a year of near continuous improvements based on community feedback, Airbnb announced its 2023 Winter Release, which brings increased transparency and reliability across the platform, and so much more – just in time for holiday travel. Airbnb has more than 7 million homes all over the world. Each home is one-of-a-kind, and this uniqueness is what sets Airbnb apart. But with so much variety, it can be hard to know what you’re going to get. This is why many people prefer hotels, and it’s the #1 obstacle preventing them from booking on Airbnb. Airbnb introduced three major upgrades to help guests understand exactly what to expect before they book: Introducing Guest Favorites The best way to find a great place to stay is by knowing which homes guests love the most. That’s why Airbnb created Guest Favorites—a collection of the 2 million most-loved homes on Airbnb based on ratings, reviews, and reliability data from over half a billion trips. Great ratings and reviews Outstanding reliability Easy to discover on Airbnb Nearly two-thirds of Guest Favorites come from Superhosts, who’ve been recognized for their track record of outstanding hospitality. Revamped ratings and reviews Guests have left over 371 million reviews about their stays on Airbnb. These ratings and reviews are the best way to understand the quality of a home. But today, there is limited information on the ratings page, and it’s hard for guests to find reviews that are relevant to them. The redesigned ratings page includes three new features that make reviews easier to read and much more helpful. Review sorting Rating distribution More review details Introducing the Listings tab Managing a listing is one of the most essential parts of hosting because it’s how guests learn about a home. In fact, listings with more details can get up to 20% more bookings. But many listings are missing the details guests care about because adding them has been too difficult. That’s why Airbnb is introducing the Listings tab—a set of new tools for Hosts to easily manage their listing and showcase the details of their home. Listing editor AI-powered photo tour Smart lock integration Even more upgrades for Hosts In addition to the new Listings tab, the 2023 Winter Release includes even more upgrades for Hosts. Pricing visibility Compare prices New earnings dashboard New options for Co–Host payouts New Co-Host messaging Hosts can try new features today by enrolling in Airbnb Early Access. Smart lock integration will be coming to Early Access for listings in the US and Canada later this year. Pricing visibility and compare prices will be available next year. For more information on the latest upgrades, please visit, and check out all of the 2023 Winter Release Highlights. If you're interested in becoming a host, visit to sign up. About Stephanie Goodloe Stephanie Goodloe is an Airbnb Superhost of a cottage in Prescott, Arizona. After moving into her new home in 2014, she convinced her husband that renovating the cottage in the back of their property would be a great way to supplement their mortgage and generate some additional income. Almost 10 years later, her listing has over 500+ 5 star reviews – and hosting has given her the freedom to raise her family while exploring other entrepreneurial adventures. Above all, she really enjoys having a space where guests can enjoy their vacation while feeling at home and comfortable.

Lesser-Known Tips to Protect Your Home During National Fire Prevention Month


October is National Fire Prevention Month, and there’s no better time to heighten awareness of home fires and how to help prevent them. Did you know that home fires are the most common disaster in this country? In fact, they are so dangerous that they claim more lives in a typical year than all natural disasters combined. Although you may be familiar with common tips, like testing smoke alarms and cooking safety, to honor the spirit of the month, here are some lesser-known fire prevention tips that are just as important. Hidden Home Fire Hazards Five common causes may account for most home fires, but that still leaves a large portion of home fires to be accounted for, including those from what we consider more hidden fire hazards like these: Recalled products – Periodically checking the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission website can help you stay up-to-date on commonly recalled products like appliances, lamps, and computer batteries. Loose outlets – Pay attention when you plug in items because the interior parts of electrical outlets can loosen over time. If the plug doesn’t fit snugly, consider replacing the outlet. Excess Sawdust – When remodeling your home, sawdust, which is highly combustible when left on surfaces, can quickly build up. So ensure you regularly vacuum work surfaces and dispose of the sawdust properly. Household products – Take care when using products like non-dairy coffee creamer, nail polish remover, 9-volt batteries, and cleaning solutions, as they can be highly flammable. Dishwashers – It’s unsurprising that appliances like stoves and dryers can be fire hazards, but your dishwasher? Nearly 500 fires yearly are caused by faulty dishwashers when leaking water enters the heating element or electrical components. Bird nests – You’ll likely find these around the exterior of your house, but make sure they aren’t perched on your outdoor lighting or gutters where they could be potential fire hazards. Gutters – Debris, like pine needles and leaves, can accumulate in your gutters and become highly flammable once they dry out. You must regularly clean your gutters or install gutter guards to prevent this. Gutterglove Protects Homes One Gutter At A Time Gutter guards block debris by creating a barrier between the roof and the gutter system that stops it from entering while allowing water to flow. This prevents you from taking on the burden of regularly cleaning gutters while offering peace of mind that they remain free of flammable debris. All gutter guards require occasional maintenance to clear surface debris which can accumulate over time. This maintenance can be safely and easily carried out using Gutterglove’s specialized 360 Gutter Guard Brush. We’ve been manufacturing gutter guards since 2003. Gutterglove products and accessories are designed to protect any home, regardless of roof type or gutter size, with both do-it-yourself and professionally installed product options of the highest quality available. Specifically, our stainless-steel micro mesh gutter guards work in two ways for fire prevention: The mesh tightness blocks flammable debris from accumulating inside the gutter, which can create kindling for fire embers. The gutter guard material is fire-tested and is Wildland-Urban Interface (WUI) compliant. Gutterglove® is an innovation company focused on products, programs, and technology for the home improvement space. They manufacture gutter guards and accessories designed to protect any home, regardless of roof type or gutter size, with both do-it-yourself and professionally installed product options. Their innovation extends beyond products into new programs and technology that deliver seamless support to customers and contractors nationwide. Starting in 1996 as a gutter cleaning business, the team at Gutterglove noticed gutter guards needed to perform as promised. Gutterglove explored new designs, the best materials, and customers' needs to create an extensive patented portfolio of the highest quality gutter guards available. Gutterglove is proud to offer the Nation's Most Trusted Gutter Guards®. For more information, please visit our website Contact Details Madison Baber +1 210-213-2426 Company Website
