Co-Founder, Vice President of Operations
Michael Miceli is co-founder of Mici Handcrafted Italian and currently the VP of Operations. Michael has been in the restaurant industry his entire career which started while he was still in college earning his Business Degree in Hospitality Management at the University of Central Florida. At that time, he opened an independent carry-out and pizza delivery business with his brother, Jeff. While competing against similar pizza concepts in town, Michael learned about running lean while maintaining high food quality and service standards. At Mici, Michael has been an Opening General Manager for several restaurants, leading to the successful launch of the brand in these markets. Michael serves as the company’s expert on food quality and technique, which has always been his passion. He is responsible for testing, piloting, and perfecting new operational systems – recently overseeing the installation and operation of Mici’s first conveyor belt brick oven. During his free time, he enjoys the great outdoors and always finds adventure with his wife Monica and their three children, Mia, Isabella and Franco.
