Cicis – the restaurant known and loved for its unlimited pizza, pasta, salad, soup and dessert buffet – recently opened the doors to its second Phoenix restaurant at 1818 W. Montebello Ave., near Christown Spectrum Mall.

To celebrate, the popular pizza brand is hosting a grand opening party from 1-4 p.m. on Monday, March 12. Beginning at 1 p.m., the first 100 paying, dine-in customers ages 13 and older will receive FREE Cicis for a Year! In addition, face painters and a balloon artist will be on-site during the celebration and the Washington High School Pom Squad will be in attendance to pump up the crowd beginning at 3 p.m.

“We opened our doors five days ago and our unlimited pizza buffet has already been a huge hit,” said Corporate Business Director Frank Estrada. “We’ve assembled a great team and we’re all excited to celebrate our grand opening with everyone on Monday. We will be donating 15% of our opening day sales to the Save the Family Foundation of Arizona and look forward to continuing our community involvement in the months and years ahead.”

The new Phoenix restaurant features Cicis contemporary new logo, branding and “Maverick” restaurant prototype, which embodies Cicis recently redefined brand character, described as “unconventional, brave and independent.”

Cicis is dedicated to going Beyond Pizza and feeding individuality by enabling its guests to find the tastes they love. For a limited time, guests can enjoy Cicis New York style pizzas and dessert that are featured on the unlimited buffet. Try out the new Meatball Pepperoni and Cheese New York Style pizzas made with a new crust and sauce and loads of 100% real cheese. Then, indulge in something sweet with the new Cheesecake Brownie Swirl.

Hours of operation at Phoenix’s new Cicis are Sunday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., and Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. This marks the third Cicis in Arizona and 427th system-wide.
