“In addition to bringing a “quality concept” to the area, Smith said he is excited to offer a work-life balance for his managerial team. Managers at Mici’s Frisco location can look forward to a four-day work week.
“I wanted to do that because it’s not normal,” Smith said. “I want [my staff] to understand that I appreciate the time that they put into work. I respect their quality of life with their family.”
Smith added that the shortened work week would not affect managers’ salary.
Smith, who spent 28 years as an owner at Outback Steakhouse, said that the Mici concept won him over because of the “great food” and its emphasis on family.
