Due to Overwhelming Response, CiCi’s Pizza Extends $3.99 Buffet Promotion

March 17, 2010 (COPPELL, TEXAS) CiCi’s Pizza is extending the 25th Anniversary 3.99 buffet pricing from March 17 28, 2010.   This limited time 25th Anniversary price proved to be a very successful way to thank CiCi’s loyal guests while providing an unbeatable deal for those unfamiliar to the hot and fresh endless buffet.  

We are more than pleased that our guests were ‘WOW’ed by this endless value offer, said Michael Shumsky, CEO of CiCi’s Pizza. Our reputation is built on our endless flavor, endless variety and endless value and we look forward to continuing to celebrate our 25th Anniversary with our guests and providing them with a terrific CiCis experience.

What I like most about CiCi’s is that it’s cost efficient for a family of four, said a mother of two who lives in Frisco, Texas. It’s fun and everyone gets what they want.

CiCi’s Pizza first opened as an independent restaurant in 1985 in Plano, Texas. From the very first location to their now 650 restaurants in 33 states, CiCi’s has built a reputation for offering guests a value-driven price point for the 24-footlong endless buffet of salad, pasta, pizza and desserts.  

CiCi’s Pizza features 18 different kinds of pizza on the buffet including signature pies such as the Macaroni and Cheese, Thin Crust Italiano and the Mexican Ole. Men’s Health “Eat this, Not That” recently gave CiCi’s top marks for their salad bar and healthier pies, including the Zesty Vegetable, Alfredo and the Mexican-inspired Ol. 

Were so proud of how our system was able to deliver on the CiCis experience, said Kyle Smith, Vice President of Brand Excellence, CiCis Pizza. Everyone on our team, at every level, really worked hard to provide a hot, fresh buffet and excellent level of guest service. And they are looking forward to introducing additional guests to the brand during our anniversary celebration extension!
