CiCi’s Pizza Targets 500-Store Expansion Over Next Eight to Ten Years

According to, “There’s good pizza and there’s great pizza, but the consensus is that there’s really no such thing as a bad pizza. It’s pizza.”

“Whether you like the pizza at CiCi’s Pizza Buffet — perhaps best known for its $5 all-you-can-eat pizza — haven’t had it, or despise everything it stands for, the chain is multiplying like rabbits. On Wednesday, the Plano, Texas-based company, formed in 1985, revealed its plans to add 500 stores over the next 8 to 10 years to its already existing 600 stores in 35 states. Currently there are nine locations in Colorado, six of which are located in the Denver metro area, but don’t hold your breath if you’re hoping for more locations in Colorado: “Through recent market and demographic research, the company has identified these prime areas for expansion: the Inland Empire, Chicago, Upstate New York, Philadelphia, Miami and Phoenix,” reads a release by the company.”
