Cici's Pizza president buys luxury haven in Coppell, Texas

COPPELL, TEXAS – Cici’s Pizza President Craig Moore emerged Thursday as the high bidder in the auction of a five-bedroom luxury home in Coppell, with a sale price of $1,189,000. J.P King Auction Company, Gadsden, Ala., managed the sale.

“We sold one of Coppell’s premier homes to one of the area’s most prominent corporate citizens. That’s a pretty good day’s work,” said Craig King, president of J.P. King.

The home, which features extensive water gardens and a private tennis court, had been built by Gene Van Overschelde, one of Southwest Airlines’ first pilots. Now it will be owned by the president of one of the nation’s fastest growing franchise operations. Moore was named president of the Coppell-based pizza chain in 2002.

Founded in 1985, Cici’s Pizza now has more than 480 restaurants. It was named Pizza Chain of the Year in 2002 by the trade publication, Pizza Today Magazine.

Van Overschelde had moved approximately 85 tons of red rock and flagstone for the water gardens, which were featured in the area’s 2000 Tour of Ponds.

“Creating this place has been an incredible experience,” said Van Overschelde. “It’s been a lot of work and a lot of joy, but it’s time to let it go,” he said.
