Frisco will be receiving an Italian restaurant known for its pizza, pasta, gelato and wine according to a Dallas Morning News article from February 7 which reports,
“Denver-based Italian restaurant chain Mici Handcrafted Italian is setting up shop in North Texas. The restaurant group known for its family recipes is venturing into the national franchise business and picked Frisco for its expansion efforts.
The fast-casual concept offers counter service and a menu of pizza, pasta, gelato and wine, making it a favorite for families and a good fit for Frisco, said Mici CEO Elliot Schiffer.
At Mici, many of the ingredients are made in-house, like the pizza dough, sauces and meatballs, and they source only all natural products free of hormones and preservatives. Schiffer said they also source all of their gelato locally for each location, and will do the same for their North Texas restaurants.
“I know a lot of brands look to go to Texas because it’s a huge growth state, which we love,” Schiffer said. “You look at the suburbs of Dallas, and the growth is amazing in North Texas. So many homes are being built and families are moving in. It’s just an exciting place.”
Additionally, Frisco’s Mici Handcrafted Italian will already be featuring special pizzas for the month of love as they will be serving heart-shaped pizzas according to a QSR Magazine article from February 9. They say,
“From our family to yours, our pizzas are always made with love—we’re excited to offer this fun option for Valentine’s Day, especially this year!” says Partner Jeff Miceli.
Heart-shaped pizzas will be available on Valentine’s Day for dining-in, carryout and delivery. Mici’s Founder aka “Chef Jeff” shows you how they make this special pie here:
Not to forget the sweet side of Valentine’s Day, Mici also invites guests to sweeten their meal with their Denver-made gelato from Glacier Ice Cream and Gelato or their newly-launched authentic cannoli stuffed with a creamy ricotta and chocolate chip filling from the famed La Rosa’s Pastry Shop in New Jersey, known as the “King of Cannoli” in the United States.”
Upon success in Frisco, the owner of the Italian restaurant will expand and add more branches around Dallas-Fort Worth area.
