About Cici’s Pizza Stores
In 1985, Cicis opened its doors for the very first time in Plano, Texas – and just like that, the Original Unlimited Pizza Buffet was born. Today, we’ve grown to over 450 restaurants in 32 states. Then and now, we proudly invite our Guests to expand their palates and find the flavors they love on our Unlimited Pizza Buffet. From the start, we’ve worked hard to create fun, family-friendly restaurants. A place where Guests can spend quality time together and enjoy all the Pizza, Pasta, Salad and Dessert they crave – for one low price. That dedication to finding better ways to run a restaurant has won us national recognition, including the Techonomic 2014 Consumer’s Choice Award for Best Kid-friendly, Quick Service Restaurant. Both Zagat and Parents magazines listed Cicis as a Top Family-friendly Restaurant. G.I. Jobs recognized Cicis as a Military-Friendly Franchise and Entrepreneur named Cicis to its Franchise 500 list. Joe Croce and Mike Cole founded Cicis in 1985 in Plano, Texas. In 2001, with 363 restaurants at the time, the chain expanded its buffet offerings and began remodeling restaurants. Four years later, Cicis had more than 500 locations, and was the fastest-growing pizza chain in the United States. In 2003 Croce retired from the business, and passed ownership of the company to the company’s executive team. Craig Moore, who was a general manager in Dallas, became vice president of the company, a position he held for five years before he was named president after the sale. Croce gave 20% of his proceeds to Gateway Church, where he was a member. As president of the chain, Moore oversaw the company’s operations and franchise growth, eventually announcing his retirement in 2009, after 17 years with the company. In addition to its current restaurants, in 2010 Cicis announced plans to add another 500 restaurants in the next 10 years (with the possibility of expanding internationally into Canada and Mexico). Cicis has won numerous awards and has also been named one of the top 25 performing brands by The Wall Street Journal and a top 200 franchise concept by Franchise Today. The award for worst restaurant ideas has also been awarded to the pizza chain.
