Charting expansion opportunities across the country, Detroit-based Little Caesars today announced it is looking to grow its presence in the New England region with a goal of awarding more than 50 new franchise units across Boston and Providence by 2026.
Little Caesars has more than 17 Little Caesars locations currently open and operating across the two cities. The company is seeking both single-unit and multi-unit investors looking to grow their business across the Boston and Providence metropolitan areas.
Little Caesars, part of Ilitch Holdings Inc. in Detroit and founded in 1959 by Mike and Marian Ilitch, is the third largest pizza chain in the world — in an overall $145 billion industry. It has franchise and company-owned stores in each of the 50 U.S. states, and across 27 countries and territories.
“New England’s metropolitan cities — Boston and Providence especially — are filled with aspiring entrepreneurs who value technology and innovation,” says Craig Sherwood, vice president of franchise development at Little Caesars.
As part of its expansion in the New England region, Little Caesars is participating in The Franchise Show in Boston at the Crowne Plaza Marlborough on Oct. 16-17. Key executives from the Little Caesars franchise development team will be set up at Booth 224 throughout the show to discuss the brand’s franchise opportunities with interested prospects from surrounding markets.
Little Caesars franchising investments start at around $360,000, with incentive programs available for veterans and first responders. For more information visit Franchise.LittleCaesars.com
In recent months, Little Caesars announced it is expanding its presence in the Pacific Northwest region with a goal of awarding more than 50 new franchise units across Portland and Seattle by 2026.
With 120-plus Little Caesars locations currently open and operating across the Pacific Northwest, the company is building momentum for expansion as it seeks out single and multi-unit franchisees looking to grow their businesses, primarily in Beaverton, Tigard, Tacoma, and Bellevue.
In turn, the pizza maker is seeking growth plans in the St. Louis market with approximately 35 new units, with the goal of opening at least 10 of them by the close of 2024.
By adding 35 new stores, Little Caesars aims to employ more than 1,000 residents in greater St. Louis. The brand will focus on multi-unit agreements to accelerate its growth beyond its existing 19 franchise locations in the area.
The company also is planning to expand its footprint in North Carolina with a goal of developing 25 new units across the Charlotte market between now and 2024.
To add to the nearly 40 Little Caesars locations currently open and operating in the greater Charlotte metro area, Sherwood says the brand is actively searching for both single-unit and multi-unit franchisees looking to grow their portfolios in this region.
