CiCi's Pizza Prize Winners Announced

32-Ounce Cup Promotion Winner has an Unforgettable Birthday Surprise

September 06, 2007 // Franchising.com // (Coppell, Texas) CiCi's Pizza announces the end of their peel-and-win 32-ounce cup promotion. The promotion was held in all of the company's 620 restaurants. Guests who purchased a 32-ounce beverage had a chance to win a Samsung 50" flat panel HDTV, Apple iPod 1GB MP3 Shuffle Players, as well as instant-win free buffets, soft drinks and free toppings on any to-go pizza. The promotion ended on August 31, 2007.

Winner of the HDTV was Bill Mulroy of Inman, South Carolina but Jonda Raborn of China Spring, Texas thinks she won the best prize of all. On her 13th birthday, Jonda was told she could choose any restaurant for her birthday celebration.

"She had been asking for an iPod for her birthday present," said Neely Sparkman, Jonda's mother, "but it was not something we could afford. To cheer her up we asked her to choose her favorite restaurant and she chose CiCi's. We ordered the 32-ounce drink for her and to our delight she won the IPod."

"The promotion was designed to thank our guests for their patronage and create a fun, exciting summer event," said Craig Moore, president of CiCi's Pizza. "The story of Jonda was very heartwarming and just underscores for us how CiCi's touches our guests' lives in ways we never imagine."

Founded in 1985, CiCi's Pizza is a family-oriented restaurant serving guests fresh pizza, pasta, salad and dessert – all for under $5.00. CiCi's mission then and now is to exceed each guest's expectation in food, service and cleanliness at an affordable price. Since opening its first restaurant in Plano, Texas, CiCi's has grown to over 600 restaurants in 29 states.

Industry professionals have taken notice of CiCi's Pizza continuous growth and success. Nation's Restaurant News has ranked CiCi's number one for sales and unit growth in the pizza chain category for the past three years. In its recent 2007 ranking, Entrepreneur magazine designated CiCi's as the top brand in the Italian restaurant franchise category. StartupJournal.com, The Wall Street Journal's guide for entrepreneurs, ranked CiCi's as one of the top 25 highest-performing brands in the nation and Franchise Today placed the company in the top 200 of all franchise concepts.
