First 100 guests will receive a free pizza buffet every month for one year

(AUSTIN, Texas) Oct. 17, 2011 - CiCi’s Pizza, home of the $5.49 endless pizza buffet, announces the opening of its newest location in Austin on Oct. 24. Area residents should be on the lookout for hundreds of wallets that CiCi’s will drop with a coupon for a free buffet meal tucked inside.

The 4,000 square-foot restaurant will open at 10:30 a.m. on Monday, Oct. 24. It will be located at 2525 W. Anderson Lane in the Northcross shopping center, with its endless buffet packed with 20 different pizzas and pasta, soup, salad and oven-baked desserts. The first 100 guests to purchase an adult buffet on opening day will receive a free pizza buffet each month for a year.

This will be franchisee Greg Smith’s second CiCi’s location and he anticipates the new restaurant will have a positive impact on the Austin community.

“The new CiCi’s Pizza in Austin not only provides new jobs, but is also a family-friendly environment for residents to enjoy great food at an outstanding value,” said Smith. “I look forward to providing Austin residents with a fully stocked buffet that offers a wide variety of pizzas to please any family.”

Coppell, Texas-based CiCi’s, one of the nation’s fastest growing pizza chains, makes each pizza by hand using fresh dough, with sauce prepared in small batches with a special blend of herbs and seasonings and crisp vegetables. Guests who don’t see their favorite pizza fresh and hot on the buffet can just ask and CiCi’s will make it on the spot and bring it straight from the oven to the table.

In addition to the hundreds of pizza combinations that can be created by traditional toppings, CiCi’s also serves a variety of specialty pizzas, including its Philly Cheesesteak Pizza. The Philly Cheesesteak is made on traditional hand-stretched crust with Philly Cheese Sauce, grilled sliced beef and topped with red onion and green bell peppers. Guests will also find the famous Macaroni & Cheese, the Mexican Pizza Olé and Spinach Alfredo pizzas. All pizzas are available to-go and 15” one-topping carryout pizzas are priced at just $6.99.

Hours of operation for dine-in and carryout are Monday through Sunday 10:30 a.m. to 10 p.m.
