Uno Restaurant Holdings Corp., Boston, said it hired Mark Lamothe as president of Uno Foods, a retail retail division that produces refrigerated and frozen Uno-branded and private-label deep dish and artisan crust pizzas, entrees and appetizers sold in grocery and club stores, as well as foodservice products sold in airports, movie theatres, hotels, travel plazas, schools and stadiums.
Officials said Lamothe brings more than 20 years of branded package goods experience, serving as president and chief operating officer of High Liner Foods and president of the Mrs. Friday's division of Gorton's Seafood, both leading frozen seafood brands. He joins Uno’s from Good Harbor Fillet, a leading brand and private-label frozen seafood manufacturer.
“Uno’s has such a great reputation for its food that it’s a pleasure to be selected to lead this important growth area for the company,” says Lamothe. “Uno Foods has grown from being just an idea in the basement of our Boston Kenmore Square location to a product that people look for in their grocery stores. I look forward to building upon that success and being a part of the Uno family.”
