CiCi's Pizza Announces Online Ordering in Seven Test Markets

ONOSYS Web-based ordering service to help grow buffet restaurant’s carry-out business

COPPELL, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--CiCi’s Pizza, home of the custom pizza buffet, announces it has partnered with ONOSYS to test online ordering in Orlando, Fla., Charlotte, N.C., Denver, Austin, Texas, Richmond, Va. and Las Vegas. Tests will begin in early 2012 in support of CiCi’s “Build the Brand” growth strategy.

“Our online ordering system is a logical next step in making the CiCi’s brand more accessible to on-the-go guests and building carry-out sales.”

“CiCi’s offers carry-out pizzas at an incredible value, and we see to go business as a real growth opportunity for our current and future franchisees,” said CiCi’s Vice President of Franchise Services Steve Hawter. “ONOSYS offers a convenient online solution for CiCi’s guests to enjoy our wide variety of unique pizzas and custom favorites outside the four walls of the restaurant.”

The online ordering system will allow guests to customize their orders in great detail and save their favorite items for repeat ordering. Guests can place orders 24 hours a day and schedule pickup anytime during restaurant hours.

“As a restaurant famous for its custom buffet, CiCi’s needed a service that would be as flexible as they are,” said Alex Yakubovich, Co-Founder and Partner at ONOSYS. “Our online ordering system is a logical next step in making the CiCi’s brand more accessible to on-the-go guests and building carry-out sales.”

ONOSYS is a leading developer of mobile and online ordering solutions for restaurant chains and services more than 75 brands.
