We recently moved in a town that has a CiCi's Pizza Parlor, which I believe is a national chain. Has anyone with pa or pa children had any experience with CiCi's, as far as safety for the peanut allergic? Thanks for your response.

We go there all the time! No problems where we live (in Virginia). Still, I would check with the restaurant near you to confirm that they don't have peanut products either.

We have been there twice without any problems. We asked about peanuts and they told us they don't use any. We're in Florida. If you have a DOUGH or FAT allergy, beware,though, Haha!

When we visit Florida, my son eats at CiCi's. No problems so far.

We live in New Mexico and my daughter loves to eat at CiCi's. She is severly allergic to peanuts and we have had NO problems.

My kids love CiCi's. My pa daughter has never had problems. I do always ask about the dessert pizzas before we enter-just in case!

CiCis is peanut free but I do not know about Tree nuts. Call your local CiCi's and talk to the manager and he should know. Enjoy! We will probably still go to Pizza Hut too.

Did anybody call Cici's about other nuts? We eat there pretty often and never seen any. Ben loves that he can eat their desert as this is the only restaurant he gets to do that in. He is milk allergic and I know the pizza they make him probably is cross contaminated but he isnt that sensitive to milk. But everytime we go in there they make him 3 slices of cheeseless pizza. The pizza itself is ok.

Here is the response I received January 9th, 2007... I'm not sure if they are franchised or not, but worth a call to your local Cici's to make sure they are safe.
Dear ______,
Thank you for your inquiry. None of our products contain nuts or nut products, nor are our products produced in plants that handle any kind of nut. Therefore, there should be no threat of cross-contamination.
I hope that you will visit with us in the near future and allow us to offer you exceptional service. It will be our pleasure to have you as our guests.

DD keeps asking if we can go here.
Do you think the info is different from store to store since they are privately owned?
Also, all the ones around here are attached to a Cold Stone Creamery which I'm sure have nut products.

I'm not sure...we don't do restaurants yet. Just in the event we decide to try out a restaurant, I decided I would contact Cici's. I read about them here on one of the other pizza postings. Sorry I can't be of more help.

I went to Cici's last night! First time in a year atleast that I have been to a restaurant!
I called and found that there is no PN/TN in anything they make. I am also soy allergic, and many of the items were still safe.
The woman I spoke with was semi-knowledgeable, BUT was VERY helpful and read me every ingredient in everything I wanted to know about (and more!) & friendly.
I didn't eat off the buffet- I had them make a medium pizza for me (lasted for three meals!). It wasn't bad. Not at all greasy. Wasn't as good as my homemade... but definitely a cheap, hot, and satisfying alternative to cooking for myself for every meal!

dds LOVE CiCis. It is one of our 3 safe restaurants that we frequent. We do eat off the buffet, but we wipe hands with baby wipes afterwards. Dd isn't actually big enough to help herself yet, but I wipe up because I know that people don't wash their hands!

Here is my response from a few days ago-really astounding considering their variety of items...
Dear XXXX,
Thank you for your inquiry. At CiCi's, we are always glad to help you work around any dietary restrictions you may have. None of our products contain nuts or are manufactured in a facility that handles nuts.
I hope this information is good news and that you will visit with us in the near future. It will be our pleasure to have you as our guests.

I just found out my sons kdg class will be taking a field trip to CICI pizza in May so i got on their website and felt pretty good then called the home office number -- after a half hour on the phone we found a few items my MFA 6 year old can have -- they were great on the phone and willing to go through every thing for my sons allergies which are not all top 8 ones -- especially the corn. i think my family might convert from Pizza hut.
