NEEK-O'Z), opened the doors in Chillicothe, Missouri on June 15, 2009. The
first location was on the North side of the downtown square, next to the Silver
Moon Plaza, a small cozy eatery that was opened to provide a healthier choice
for lunch. Not only does Nico'Z serve lunch but is available to do caterings up
to 100 people. Nico'Z is also open with a separate dinner menu on Friday evenings from 530pm-9pm. Reservations are recommended for dinner, but not required. Don't miss out on our midweek HUMP DAY HAPPY HOUR from 5-7pm with all of our specialty pizzas and drink specials... Everyone needs a break in their busy schedule.
Nicole Cleaveland Booth was
born and raised in Chillicothe, Missouri. After graduating from the University
of Missouri-Columbia with a Bachelors Degree in Hotel & Restaurant
Management, moved to Las Vegas, Nevada where she resided for over 7 years. Satisfied with achieving many goals & fabulous opportunities in the hospitality
field (Station Casinos, Inc, Harrah's Inc, The Hard Rock Hotel & Casino), moved
home to marry longtime friend and schoolmate, Dave Booth, who is responsible
for the name of the cafe. The Z is for her mother Zelma.
After moving back to
Chillicothe and working for a couple of other businesses, Nicole decided that
if she was to survive the small-town life, it was time to create something that
was a challenge. Originally, the idea was to just do catering, but when the
opportunity for the downtown location of the business arose...Why not do
After two and a half years of
business, lunches exceeded the seating space of the first location so a new
location opened in November 2011! Nicole prepares Soups, Wonderful Salads, Daily Seasonal Specials, Specialty Pizzas, Hot Sandwiches and a Friendly
Atmosphere. Make sure you have your fill of your favorites, the menu changes quarterly to keep it new and interesting.
There are a few things you
should know about Nico’Z before coming in for a visit: There is no fried food, no reservations at noon and there is no Ranch Dressing. We call it "healthier dining"... Try something new, you just may like it!
