Mici Italian (Mici), a fast-growing, family-owned, fast casual chain based out of Denver, Colo. has opened its second Arizona location in Queen Creek.
Bringing its brand of fresh, family-focused Italian food and joining the successful location in Gilbert, at 5498 S. Power Road, the new Queen Creek restaurant is located east of the Queen Creek Botanical Gardens and The Pecans of Queen Creek community, at 24750 S. Ellsworth Road. This location will be the third location to debut the brand’s recent brand refresh, with a completely new look and feel. The 1,500-square-foot restaurant has 28 seats and dedicated pick-up and delivery stations, as well as offer delivery and catering.
“We’re really excited about Queen Creek – from the family-oriented community to the town’s thriving energy, this suburb of Phoenix is the perfect fit for Mici fans of any age,” said Lucas Farnham, Mici’s Arizona franchisee. “The Miceli family’s scratch pizza and pasta recipes and our fast-casual style of service will be a great addition to the growing community here.”
This 11th and newest location joins the successful line of family friendly, affordable Italian eateries that focus on authentic Italian recipes using natural, unprocessed, clean ingredients.
The menu includes Mici’s handcrafted, all-natural pizzas, in a variety of combinations which include family favorites like The DiGirolomo (named for the family’s great grandfather), topped with olive oil, nitrate-free pepperoni, pepperoncini, gorgonzola and mozzarella; and The Vela (named for Miceli nieces Sofia and Francesca), featuring olive oil, family-recipe sausage, ricotta and mozzarella. Pizzas are available in 10-inch and 16-inch sizes, with make-your-own and gluten-free crust options available.
Pasta offerings include traditional Spaghetti and Meatball, featuring Miceli matriarch Rosalie’s Marinara and family-recipe meatballs; Tortellini alla Miceli, which is patriarch Jerry’s favorite, and features Parmigiano-Reggiano cream sauce, Prosciutto di Parma, and green peas; plus other family favorites like Creamy Pesto and hearty Cortonese, a Tuscan meat sauce over penne pasta.
The menu is rounded out by an array of fresh salads, and Dolce—Mici offers handcrafted Gelato from Villa Dolce Gelato, plus authentic Italian Cannoli from the famed La Rosa’s Pastry Shop in New Jersey, known as the “King of Cannoli” in the United States—and a selection of Italian wine and beer.
