People Love Mici
find out why
Throughout the years, pizza restaurants have provided one of two options: Great tasting artisan pizza that's slowwwww, or pizza that's convenient but not very appetizing.
Going to your favorite pizza joint rarely fits into your schedule - if they do happen to deliver, it takes forever and doesn't travel well. Other concepts offer fast delivery, but let's face it, the pizzas aren't very good. It provides a meal, but with much to be desired. This means you don't always get the pizza you crave.
Mici customers don't have to make this compromise. They want great food that fits into their busy lives. They're home late from work. They've got to take their kids to soccer practice. There's no time to grocery shop or cook, but they want to serve their families healthy food that's fast. So, they order Mici from the app on their phones before leaving the office or in the car at the stoplight. The food is made quickly with clean ingredients, it tastes delicious and can be delivered to their door by the time they get home.
Mici has been perfecting a solution for pizza that is both artisan and convenient since 2004. And, our track record proves that it does not go unnoticed!
An Overnight Success
The Miceli family wanted to make the pizza experience better, so in 2004, they started Mici Handcrafted Italian. As a family rooted in Italian food traditions, they craved great tasting pizza and pasta that could fit into the busy American lifestyle.
However, creating a concept that was convenient, yet artisan, didn’t happen overnight. They took their time laying the groundwork for growth. By carefully expanding with new partners, they've been able to perfect the menu, simplify operations, provide a takeout/delivery experience that is as good as dine-in, increase margins, and build an impressive support team. They took it slow intentionally and waited until all of the pieces were in place before focusing on sizable growth.
Guess what? It worked, and we’re ready! The pieces are in place, the numbers speak for themselves and soon customers throughout the U.S. will be able to experience the magic of Mici Handcrafted Italian.

We Took a Hard Thing and Made It Easy
reap the benefits
Patrick Desmond | General Manager
We've been in the pizza business for 25 years. The allure of the industry is there - it's huge and the margins are exceptional. But, we know how hard it can be to run an artisan pizzeria. So we innovated and patented our process which allows us train people to make great pizza with no experience. In this labor market, that's a game changer.
We Won't Leave You Hanging
a franchise is only as good as its support
Raquel Hampton | Training Manager
We don't teach dedication. We don't teach leadership. We don't teach resolve.
But, if you can bring those things to the table, we make darn sure that you know everything else that is needed to run a great Mici.
We'll train you and your management team at one of our certified training stores. And we'll send a crew of experienced trainers to your opening to teach your crew how to make the best pizza and pasta in your city.
Joe Melton | Senior Vice President Operations
We have diligently focused on removing complexity from the kitchen. Any employee with any level of experience and only a few days of training can make any item on the menu...perfectly.
This allows your manager to focus on smooth operations, great customer service, and sales growth.
Kim Miceli | Founder & Vice President Brand Strategy
The pizza industry is broken - one coupon after another is used to drive sales in the business. But, that's expensive and less effective each year.
At Mici we're experts at finding customers and getting them excited about our brand via digital media. People don't watch TV and check mail like they used to – they're on their phones and computers to get their content, and this is where they'll find Mici.
Once a guest walks through our door, their loyalty will be equally driven by good food, a seamless ordering experience and a rich rewards membership, for which we also excel.
We believe it takes only one visit to have a customer for life.
