MidiCi The Neapolitan Pizza Company, an authentic Neapolitan restaurant with a mission to bring friends together, will be creating more than 80 jobs with their latest restaurant opening in El Paso.
“We’re on the search for motivated, enthusiastic individuals who will bring an exceptional experience to all of our guests,” said local El Paso franchisee, Juan Francisco Cruz M. “We look forward to building a team of friends that can help not only serve the most delicious and authentic Neapolitan cuisine, but also create a genuine relationship with the community.”
Officials say they are currently accepting applications for a variety of roles, including: Fornaio, Stretcher, Pizzaiolo, Salad Chef, Concierge, Barista, Quality Assurance, Kitchen, and Dining Room. MidiCi is thrilled to be uniting residents and visitors of El Paso over high quality, authentic Neapolitan pizza, as well as helping to grow the local economy.
Pronounced Mee-Dee-Chee, it translates to “You tell me!” in Italian, reflecting a double-entendre at the core of the concept: the value of people telling each other about their lives, fostering friendships, and the personalization approach to the authentic Neapolitan Pizza.
Honoring the tradition, passion and art of Neapolitan Pizza-making, the way it was invented over 300 years ago in Naples, Italy, MidiCi uses traditional wood-fired ovens, custom hand built in Naples with an internal temperature of 850 degrees to bake pizzas to perfection.
MidiCi serves traditional Neapolitan cuisine with natural, fresh, non-GMO ingredients. Guests and friends can select from traditional and signature menu options or create personalized Neapolitan pizzas in an open kitchen fashion, also known as “the heart,” all baked to perfection.
Acclaimed Los Angeles-based restaurateur and executive chef Peppe Miele along with chef Mario Vollera, both Italian natives and world renowned Neapolitan pizza chefs, created the menu with authentic Neapolitan offerings to ensure a real Neapolitan pizza experience – from artisan burratas and traditional Neapolitan pizzas to a diverse selection of craft beers and fine wines.
MidiCi provides pizza aficionados with an upscale dining ambiance, designed by the acclaimed Los Angeles hotel and restaurant designer and architect Sam Marshall, while maintaining the affordability of casual dining.
The space beckons guests to visit and celebrate memories over an exquisite meal next to a signature indoor live tree.
“We’re proud of the fact that when we open a new MidiCi The Neapolitan Pizza location, we’re not just offering genuine Italian fare, but we’re also creating a number of jobs that can help impact the local economy,” said Amit Kleinberger, CEO and co-founder of MidiCi. “We feel confident that we will find some motivated and passionate candidates to help MidiCi make its mark on El Paso.”
MidiCi is growing all across the country, with over 400 locations slated to open across the country within the next 6 years. The goal is to scale the success of MidiCi The Neapolitan Pizza flagship location, a 4,300 square foot space in Los Angeles, CA, which has amassed over 1,000 rave reviews and a 4.5 out of 5-star rating on Yelp since its opening in June 2015.
Inspired by his travels throughout Naples, co-founder Amit Kleinberger sought to bring authentic Neapolitan Pizza to the U.S.A. as a means to share his passion for people and food. The restaurant was designed to foster authentic human connections, and reflect MidiCi’s philosophy, “People are the best thing that can happen to anyone”.
The original MidiCi restaurant opened in Los Angeles, CA in Summer 2015 and the brand forecasts opening 400 additional restaurants over the next 6 years in markets such as Seattle, Los Angeles, Miami, Chicago, Dallas, Boston, and more.
MidiCi The Neapolitan Pizza Company El Paso is located at 5850 North Mesa at Mesa Hills, and is open Friday, April 7, 2017 from 11:00am – 2:00am.
