Cicis Pizza, known for its all-you-can-eat pizza buffet, has announced a six-unit signed agreement in Texas. The new stores will be locally owned by Frank and Judy Rogers, existing owners of more than 10 Cicis locations in the Dallas Fort Worth Metroplex market. 

Since opening their first Cicis in 1990, the Rogers remain deeply engaged in the Texas community, ensuring that pizza lovers across the state have access to convenient and affordable dining options, according to a press release. Their roots in Texas run deep, and they take pride in continuing to cultivate connections where the concept originated. 

“It’s been extremely rewarding to be part of Cicis journey to bring the family-friendly concept to more communities across Texas,” Judy Rogers said. “With our commitment to innovation and growth alongside a world-class leadership team, we are pushing Cicis into a new era of success. Among our four children, two hold district manager roles at our restaurants, and all of them are loyal to the brand, resulting in Cicis being an integral part of our lives. Our family shares our vision and is instrumental in our continued expansion, making our experience with Cicis fulfilling and promising for the future of our family.”

Ideal Cicis franchisees have business operations experience and the capability to fully immerse themselves in the business.

“After 20-plus years in business, we know exactly what our franchisees need to succeed,” Jeff Hetsel, president of Cicis Pizza, said. “Frank and Judy understand what Cicis is all about—providing an enjoyable and tasty option for families to experience together. I am confident they will excel in upholding Cicis household name in Texas as we look forward to expanding and strengthening relationships with our loyal guests.” For more information about Cicis and the franchise opportunity, visit
