Bianco has also held executive posts for Long John Silver’s and Papa John’s.
At Cicis, he will be in charge of day-to-day operations and training at the 430-unit pizza buffet chain.
“Toni brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise to Cicis and will provide the leadership and vision necessary to meet our operational goals,” Cicis CEO Bill Mitchell said in a statement. “He will be an integral part of Cicis’ future as we continue to transform our business through innovative systems and efficiencies that drive sustainable growth.”
