MidiCi Pizza recently opened its doors in Fort Collins. Yes, another pizza place. However - while there are MANY MANY pizza places throughout town this is not just “another” pizza place. In fact, MidiCi is focused more on PEOPLE and RELATIONSHIPS than pizza. “People are the best thing that can happen to anyone” is a tag line you will see around MidiCi and that is because they are a people-focused business. With that being said, their pizza and all other food was pretty darn fantastic… the pizza, meat and cheese trays, salads, gelato, nutella calzones…. Ahhh the gelato and nutella calzones. They use fresh, natural, high quality, mostly non-GMO ingredients in the dishes on their menu. Not to mention they have a gorgeous live olive tree in the middle of the restaurant that is made to be a place where "strangers become friends."
MidiCi made me feel like I was in a popular neighborhood spot while I was eating. I said to my husband multiple times, “I just want to come back and hang out here.” When they say they love people, their culture is focused on meeting a stranger, connecting with others, and not being distracted by social media. This is something that is so important in our society now a days. If I recall there is not a single TV in the restaurant. That is awesome and made me want to come back over and over again. In fact, on MidiCi’ s website it describes the vibe they are going for as:
“We wanted a place for people to meet up, sit back and be social without the media.
Because we believe it is moments we remember, not days, not posts, not pictures.
While we love today’s digital world for the connections it allows us to have with people we wish to know, we found ourselves missing the friends we do know.
It feels like we traded the tangible for the digital.
The human touch for the touch screens.
The laughs for the LOLs.
The love for the likes.
The eye contact for the emoticons.
When shared with a friend, a minute becomes a moment, and that moment becomes a happy memory.” –MidiCi Mission
So will I be back to visit MidiCi? YES! Will I stop in to pick up a quick take-away pizza or meal? YES!
MidiCi is another pizza place in Fort Collins; HOWEVER, it is not just “a pizza place”...it is a community. It is a culture that is wanting to compel us to connect with others and build relationships. That alone will change the “dining out” experience.
Thank you to Kim and Frank for opening MidiCi. Welcome to Fort Collins!
