Company Description


Little Caesars is the third-largest pizza chain in the United States, behind Pizza Hut and Domino’s. Today, Little Caesars has over 4,500 locations, with international units in Europe, Asia and the Middle East.

Starting in 2004, the company began offering “Hot-N-Ready,” a large pepperoni pizza sold for $5. The concept was successful enough to become a permanent fixture of the chain, and this shifted Little Caesar’s business model toward carryout customers.

In December 2014, Little Caesars announced plans for a new, 8-story, 205,000-foot Global Resource Center to be built in Downtown Detroit. The new headquarters will double the size of their current location.
