Veterans Program

Little Caesars offers honorably discharged veterans and Gold Star families financial incentives to open a Little Caesars franchise of their own. Benefits include a franchise fee discount, equipment and supply discount, financing assistance, and advertising and publicity support, among others.

The Veteran's Program was established in 2006 by Little Caesars founder Mike Ilitch, who proudly served with the United States Marine Corps during the Korean War. His vision was to expand business opportunities for his fellow military veterans. Today, there are hundreds of veteran-owned Little Caesars stores across the country.

First Responders Program

Little Caesars has extended its franchise incentive program to first responders. First responders receive a franchise fee discount, equipment and supply discount, financing assistance, and advertising and publicity support, as well as other benefits.

Americans Love
Our Pizza

“If you build something worthwhile, people will come.”

—Mike Ilitch, Founder

Headquartered in Detroit, Michigan, Little Caesars was founded in 1959 as a single, family-owned restaurant. Since then it has become the third largest pizza chain in the world* with stores in more than 25 countries and territories worldwide, including in each of the 50 U.S. states.

Known for our $5 Hot-N-Ready® pizza, Little Caesars has been named “Best Value in America” for 13 years in a row.** Our legacy of innovation and focus on convenience continue with the Pizza Portal®—the FIRST heated, self-service mobile order pickup station in the restaurant industry. We’ve also added delivery to our standout lineup of no-contact ordering options.
