A California-based "fast-fine" pizza chain is on its way to the Boston area, setting up shop in a growing development just north of the city.
Eater Boston is reporting that Midici is planning to open at Assembly Row in Somerville, joining another pizzeria--Ernesto's--within the complex. The chain's website says that its franchises combine "the best of fast-casual with highly polished and experiential fine dining" and that it is planning to have a major expansion, opening 50 new shops by the end of 2017 and considering a possible 1,000 locations over the next 20 years.
Midici, which is headquartered in Los Angeles, currently has no locations in New England; it is not yet known if the Somerville shop will be the first or if other locations in the region might open before the Assembly Row outlet.
The address for this upcoming pizza spot in Somerville is: Midici, 463 Assembly Row, Somerville, MA,02145. The website for the chain can be found at http://www.mymidici.com/
