Our Story

We believe differences are what make life most flavorful.

Our story began in 1985 with a single restaurant in Plano, Texas and today has over 450 restaurants in 32 states. Cicis invented the unlimited pizza buffet, and since our beginning we’ve pushed the limits of eating out by saying “yes” to individual tastes and empowering our guests to find the flavors they love.

From our earliest days, we’ve opened stores on handshakes and entrusted independent thinkers to make a mark on their communities by creating the kind of dining experience where flavor runs free and individuality rules. That dedication to finding better ways to run a restaurant has won us recognition, including the Techonomic 2014 Consumer’s Choice award for best kid-friendly quick service restaurant. Both Zagat and Parents magazine 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.
