I found the answer to my own question. The pizza place that my uncle owned/managed was called Cibo House. It was an up-and-coming chain out of Nebraska in the 1960's. I am not sure if there are many left. I rather doubt it. I did find one in Charleston, SC that seems to resemble what his place in Rockford, IL was like back in the day, but I don't think it is the same business. Cibo House also served items like spaghetti with meatballs and fried chicken! http://www.cibospizza.com/
If any else has any memories or other information about Cibo's, I would appreciate it.
