Mici Handcrafted Italian, a family-owned four-unit fast casual chain based out of Denver, Colorado, announced their expansion to Lafayette, Colorado in the Waneka Marketplace, at 535 West South Boulder Road, Lafayette, Colorado.

The space, formerly a Starbucks, is currently undergoing construction. Plans include the installation of a spacious 50-seat patio, comfortable seating for 45 indoors, and the modern-yet-inviting ambiance Mici customers have come to love.

Mici Lafayette will offer delivery to Lafayette as well as parts of Louisville and Erie. With a focus on service and quality, Mici will be hiring and training 30 new team members for the Lafayette location.

In 2017, Mici completed a Series A financing and brought on Partner and CEO Elliot Schiffer. Under Schiffer’s leadership, the company has streamlined operations and optimized the menu in anticipation of expanding to other areas of Colorado and beyond.

Schiffer says of the expansion, “Lafayette is a great fifth location for Mici because it is a community that cares about the quality of their food made and that it is made with carefully sourced ingredients—and they are currently lacking in choices in the Italian space. We hope to provide the community with a place they can gather with friends and family, and share the Mici family’s traditional Italian food and hospitality.”

The fifth and newest location joins the successful line of family friendly, affordable Italian eateries that focus on authentic Italian recipes using natural, unprocessed, clean ingredients. Mici currently has four locations in the Denver metro area: Downtown Denver, 7th and Colorado, Stapleton, and Highlands Ranch; all of which offer dine-in, delivery and catering.

Mici Lafayette will open to the public in October of 2018.
