Mici’s new Queen Creek restaurant will be located east of the Queen Creek Botanical Gardens and The Pecans of Queen Creek community. This location will be the third location to debut the brand’s recent brand refresh, with a completely new look and feel. The 1500 sq. ft. restaurant will have 28 seats and dedicated pickup and delivery stations, as well as offer delivery and catering.

“With Queen Creek’s family-friendly suburbs and parks, it really is the prime location for our next Mici restaurant opening,” says Lucas Farnham, Mici’s Arizona Franchisee. “We are excited to bring the Miceli family’s generations-old Italian recipes to the Queen Creek community and to continue to get to know our Phoenix customers,” adds Farnham.
