For the first time in its 28-year history, CiCi's Pizza is expanding into airports after introducing several new restaurant prototypes designed exclusively for airports.
The initiative to expand in airports marks a milestone for CiCi's whose nontraditional growth plans also includes venues such as casinos, military bases and universities. Effective immediately, CiCi's will offer flexible store prototypes to accommodate the versatile requirements of airports, including designs for food courts, grab and go locations and a custom designed kiosk.
To introduce the new airport-specific franchise opportunity to prospective entrepreneurs, CiCi's execs will exhibit at the 2013 Airport Business Diversity Conference in San Diego from June 8 through June 11.
"CiCi's Pizza has an incredibly unique position in the marketplace given the brand's emphasis on quality, variety and value. It is exciting to offer airport prototypes that are built around exceeding the expectations of today's travelers," said Thomas McCord, vice president of Real Estate and Franchise Development at CiCi's Pizza. "We are fully committed to opening CiCi's units in some of the country's most highly recognized airports, and we're eager to find well-qualified franchise partners who are passionate about delivering on our brand promise."
CiCi's Pizza airport locations will include a variety of pizzas, salads, sandwiches, wings, drinks and a breakfast menu designed for portability.
