On the heels of its 30th anniversary, Cicis announced that it is going “Beyond Pizza” with a refreshed brand identity.

The popular chain, with nearly 450 restaurants across the U.S., unveiled its new branding—including a clean, simple, and contemporary logo—along with its newly identified core brand positioning of “Feeding Individuality.”

The new logo, which removes the word “Pizza” from its name and adds the modifier “Beyond Pizza,” acknowledges that Cicis is not just another pizza place and serves a lot more than pizza, including salad, soup, pasta, desserts, and a fun game room experience. The logo is comprised of unique shapes of various colors converging around a central point, representing variety, as well as individuals coming together.

“Cicis believes that differences are what make life most flavorful, so the new brand positioning underscores our promise to empower individuals through the freedom of the buffet to find the tastes they love,” says CMO Sarah McAloon.

The company is also rolling out a new restaurant prototype design with its first location scheduled to open in the second quarter of 2016 and a reimaged version to open in the first quarter of 2016. Sterling Rice Group of Boulder, Colorado, assisted in the development of the new brand vision and prototype design, and Back Lot Productions of Atlanta is helping translate the design into a live restaurant.

The new design features an entirely new color palette, graphics, and restaurant layout in sync with the new brand identity. More than 20 franchise-owned restaurants and at least 10 corporate-owned locations will be built following the new prototype design in 2016–17.

“We are incredibly excited about the direction our brand is headed, not just corporately, but throughout our franchise community as well,” says Cicis CEO Darin Harris. “A great deal of time and effort went into making sure our new logo, our updated look and our new prototype fit what the brand represents. We made sure to thoroughly study Cicis history and gain insight from many of our founding franchisees so we could honor our heritage as we build out the future of the brand.”

The new logo debuted today on the rebuilt website, which features the new brand identity along with updated technology to enable greater search engine accessibility. The website’s responsive design allows for a consistent user interface on mobile platforms, which are how most of Cicis guests access the site.

Cicis, it was more than just a name change, it was making their logo current. They want  guests to know they’re more than pizza, because they have pizza, soup, salad, pasta and a game room. At Cicis, you can order something and customize it the way you want it. They’re about the experience you create for yourself.Im also a graphic Designer and know the importance of that changes, please visit my work at my Etsy Store:https://www.etsy.com/shop/designexpert

Well i personally think through logo a firm can easily recognize their brands among their consumers and with the help of these logos a company can re-position their brands. It is easy for people to recall that particular brand through logo.

Excellent strategy used by cicis before the launch of pizza. The changed which he had made in the logo are vital for brand reputation. You can also ask logo design pros for creating an appealing logo for your business as they have done for Cricis brand.

Looking at their current website, it looks like they may have dropped 'Beyond Pizza' as well. I think this is the right move. They still seem very pizza focussed, as they should. The issue I have with the revised logo is that I do not read it as Cici's, but a single word cicis would sounds like some government organization, not a pizzeria. Otherwise it's a very nice fresh contemporary look.

Cicis is a big brand and that is why they consider branding in the most significant thing to consider. Also I like Custom logo design fonts and colors.
