This Fast-Growing Pizza Chain Is Now in Eight States

The California brand will bring pies like the 20" Pikes Peak to Parker, Colorado, under franchisees Chris and Rocio Plucinski.

Mountain Mike’s Pizza announced its first store in Colorado—with plans for further growth in the Centennial State.

The brand’s new restaurant, located in Parker, Colorado, will be owned and operated by Castle Rock residents Chris and Rocio Plucinski. The duo will also open a Mountain Mike’s in nearby Aurora in early 2024. The Plucinskis, who have more than 50 years of combined business experience, are expected to open future Mountain Mike’s locations in Colorado, focusing on Castle Rock, Denver and the surrounding areas.

“Whenever we explore a new venture, we first consider the business’ positive impact on the area,” the Plucinskis said in a press release. “Mountain Mike’s, with its community and family-focused DNA, goes beyond simply offering delicious pizza, it actively integrates into the neighborhoods it serves through meaningful partnerships and initiatives that align with and benefit local residents. We are so drawn to Mountain Mike’s Pizza, and from the food and the atmosphere to the culture and brand values, we are immensely proud to represent this chain, bring Mountain Mike’s to Colorado, and deliver an all-around amazing experience to guests.”
