World's Third Largest Pizza Chain Seeking Country Developers in Middle East North Africa Region
From a single store to a global chain, Little Caesars Pizza charted a path to global success starting in 1959 when founders Mike and Marian Ilitch opened their first restaurant in Michigan. By 1962 the brand began franchising, and by 1969, it went international. Today, the brand is the third largest pizza chain in the world1 and there's no denying that Little Caesars® Pizza is doing something right. Little Caesars has become a household name and is currently operating in 24 countries and territories worldwide with aggressive expansion plans to bring the iconic pizza brand to more countries within the Middle East and beyond. With restaurants on four continents Little Caesars Pizza is known for its value, convenience and its quality tasting pizzas and has been named "Best Value in America" for 12 years in a row. 2
With a dedicated global team supporting its franchisees, Little Caesars has doubled its international presence in the last seven years. The franchising opportunity is tailored for operators with multi-unit experience, access to highly preferred real estate and a long-term vision for developing the brand.
"Pizza is beloved throughout the world and Little Caesars delivers great tasting pizza at a real value that is more affordable than other options," says Bill Schreiber, Vice President of International Development. "We have seen Little Caesars become an attractive alternative to other quick service restaurant options in every market we enter, and we expect that to continue as we continue our international expansion."
The brand's signature HOT-N-READY model allows customers to walk in the door and out of the door in 30 seconds or less with an affordable, freshly made pizza and side items without waiting and with no need to order in advance.
Through the years, Little Caesars' top priority has steadfastly remained creating a great tasting product at an incredible value. Pizza is made with fresh, quality ingredients including dough that is made fresh in stores daily, sauce that is fresh-packed and never frozen, and a signature cheese blend combining mozzarella and Muenster cheese. A simple menu ensures the ability to provide quality products at a low cost, ready when the customer arrives.
There is no doubt that Little Caesars is an exceptionally high growth company with nearly 60 years of experience in the $145 billion worldwide pizza industry. Little Caesars is continually looking for franchise candidates with an entrepreneurial spirit in the franchise system, with experience in multi-unit restaurant/retail management. The company is committed to supporting its franchisees with a dedicated team around the globe in all necessary disciplines including supply chain, marketing, training, operations, and architecture. Approximately 65 percent of the brand's international franchises have been a part of the system for more than 10 years.
