Hi, Welcome to CiCis!

CiCis Pizza Lake Charles is your favorite LOCALLY OWNED AND OPERATED pizza chain. For over 20 years, our location has had a rich history of community involvement and is proud to be a part of the business infrastructure of Southwest Louisiana.


A proud history of Local Ownership

CiCis Pizza was founded in 1985 in the Dallas Texas area and quickly began franchising its concept to smaller markets.


The Lake Charles location was franchised in 1997 by Lonny Chesnut of Lafayette Louisiana who owned and operated the location until 2017 upon selling to James English, the current franchisee.

Originally hired as the Assistant Manager in 2009, James was promoted to General Manager in 2012, Operator in 2016 and then bought the business rights from Lonny in 2017.


Working as the Operations and General Manager for the next 2 years, James purchased the franchise rights in September 2019. At 35 years old, this made him one of the youngest franchisees in the CiCis Pizza system.

Today, the Lake Charles location has grown its operations to include a state-of-the-art gaming facility that produces the second largest revenue stream of any CiCis Pizza gaming facility in operation today.
