CALGARY, AB – A compliment to the ever-popular UNA Pizza + Wine, UNA Takeaway is now officially open and offers mindful takeaway options and community favourites. A thoughtful blend of quick to-go and full service, UNA Takeaway provides a wide selection of take-home dinners, one-stop meals and house made snacks and products.

Located next door to UNA Pizza + Wine, UNA Takeaway is a new on-the-go option developed with a strong emphasis on nurturing Calgary’s food community. Like sister company, UNA Takeaway focuses on quality ingredients and promises more than just pizza. Find gluten free pastries and bread made in-house by Leigh-Anne Seto, formerly the pastry chef at the Chateaux Lake Louise, house-cured sausages and select meats by Dave Sturies, owner of Empire Provisions and more.

“Not only do we want to support local producers and suppliers, but we wanted to provide Calgarians with the best options when it comes to quality ingredients and products,” states co-owner Jayme McFayden. “Our popular take-home lasagna is made with 100% grass-fed beef and even the milk that goes into our single origin coffee is 100% organic. Plus, all of our packaging is 99% recyclable or compostable.”
Conscious about the consumer experience and footprint, UNA Takeaway attributes its market extension to the growing and supportive community of Calgary.

“This was a natural progression for us,” states co-owner, Kelly Black. “Just as our UNA customers have grown with us over the years, we have grown. We wanted to provide them with an option that fits their mindful and diverse lifestyles. Some customers now have growing families, some have busier schedules; UNA Takeaway is an option for the whole family.”

UNA Takeaway was designed by locally acclaimed interior designer Connie Young. With a focus on the made-to-order specialties, a slanted greenhouse-like wall separates the entry from the kitchen. Food is presented in warm, rustic display cabinets that are cocooned with custom antique brass shelving. Drinking rails along the sides of the narrow space provide perching places to have an UNA branded coffee, wine or in-house delectable.

Starting in mid-September, UNA Takeaway will also be offering delivery services to inner city Calgarians. All menu items will be available for at-home delivery via UNA Takeaway’s website.
