Once upon a time there was… Mia Pasta
Founded in 2007, Mia Pasta was born out of a desire to provide quick, effective services with all the advantages of a traditional restaurant and high quality, healthy and balanced cuisine.

Following its significant initial success, Mia Pasta now has 13 franchises and continues to grow with the goal of becoming the market’s number one destination for relaxed, quick-service dining. Our network owes its success to the excellence of our franchisees, the work of our Mia Pasta team members and the exceptional quality of our food.
