Clearwater Welcomes 1st Cicis – Among Nation’s Largest

Restaurant To Open Monday With New Stuffed Crust Pizza Options, Free Buffet For A Year Cards

June 10, 2016 // // CLEARWATER, FL - Pizza lovers in Clearwater will be soon able to celebrate the arrival of the nation’s most popular unlimited pizza, pasta, salad, soup and dessert buffet.

Monday, June 13, Cicis will officially open its newest restaurant at 1560 McMullen Booth Road – near Ruth Eckerd Hall and BrightHouse Field – in Clearwater. It will be the only Cicis in Clearwater, one of 45 in the Sunshine State and among nearly 450 Cicis nationwide.

To add to the opening day excitement, the first 100 paying guests ages 18 and older on Monday, June 13, will receive “Free Cicis Buffets for a Year” cards, which may be used on subsequent visits.

The 16,000-square-foot Clearwater restaurant will be one of the largest Cicis in the chain’s nationwide system, and one of the first to feature Cicis contemporary new logo and branding – which embodies Cicis recently redefined brand character, described as “unconventional, brave and independent.”

Long-time Cicis fans will immediately see the difference inside as they encounter an entirely new vibrant and energetic color palette. The unlimited buffet is displayed on granite counter tops. And the restaurant features a 10,000-square-foot game room with four bowling lanes, making it the ideal destination for birthday parties, bowling nights and other celebratory events.

"We are very excited to be opening our first location in Clearwater – one of the largest Cicis in the country,” said Nabeel Ansari, CEO of the local Cicis franchise group whose family has lived in Central Florida for more than 30 years. “We have had great feedback from the community and leaders in the area. Everyone seems as excited as we are to welcome us to the neighborhood." 

Cicis is known and loved for its unlimited pizza, pasta, salad, soup and dessert buffet. Priced at just $5.99, the buffet now includes Cicis recently introduced Bacon Stuffed Crust, Soft Pretzel Stuffed Crust and Original Stuffed Crust Pizzas, along with its three new Flatbread Pizza varieties and all the traditional pizza flavors you’d expect.

The Clearwater restaurant will comfortably seat 200 guests and has added more than 40 new jobs to the local economy. The newest Cicis will be open daily from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.

Cicis is dedicated to going Beyond Pizza and feeding individuality by enabling its guests to find the tastes they love – without the risk.
