Great Kitchens Food Company, a U.S. manufacturer of take-and-bake pizzas and flatbreads owned by Brynwood Partners VIII LP, has purchased the Uno Foods division of Uno Restaurant Holdings Corp., from Newport Global Advisors.
The Uno Foods division was established in 1988 to continue the heritage of the Pizzeria Uno brand. Uno Foods manufactures and distributes frozen and refrigerated branded pizzas, calzones, entrees and appetizers across the grocery store, wholesale club, food service and e-commerce channels. The company manufactures all products from its frozen foods facility in Brockton, Mass.
“We welcome the Brockton, Mass. facility to our business and look forward to making investments into that location as we work to expand the reach of the Pizzeria Uno brand,” says Henk Hartong, chairman and CEO of Brynwood Partners.
Brynwood Partners was represented by Winston & Strawn LLP on legal matters.
