The family-owned pizza chain is eyeing further domestic expansion.
Little Caesars, which operates a combination of company-owned and franchised locations across all 50 U.S. states and 27 countries and territories, is looking to grow its Pacific Northwest footprint with a goal to award more than 50 franchise units across Portland and Seattle by 2026.
“We know the Pacific Northwest is ripe with aspiring entrepreneurs who value technology and innovation,” said Craig Sherwood, vice president of U.S development at Little Caesars. “And, the benefits of our new contactless options for both delivery and carry-out have never been more important.
“This includes our signature Pizza Portal pickup – the first heated, self-service mobile order pickup station in the restaurant industry – and our revolutionary Reserve-N-Ready system for pickup and delivery. We are confident that our business model is a perfect fit for prospects in these key areas.”
Little Caesars currently has more than 120 sites open and operating across the Pacific Northwest, and is specifically targeting the Beaverton, Tigard, Tacoma and Bellevue markets.
“Little Caesars is a family business and we pride ourselves on the solid relationships we form and maintain with our franchise owners around the world,” said Sherwood. “We’re excited to connect with potential new owners at the upcoming franchise trade show in Seattle as we continue growing our Pacific Northwest ‘family.’”
