I came, I saw, I bought a pizza. Little Caesar Enterprises operates and franchises more than 2,500 Little Caesars carryout pizza restaurants throughout the US and in about ten other countries. The chain offers a variety of original and deep-dish pizzas along with cheese bread, salads, and sandwiches. While some stores are stand-alone units, many Little Caesars locations can be found in strip malls and other high-traffic areas; the units typically do not offer dine-in seating. About 80% of the chain's outlets are run by franchisees. Little Caesars was founded in 1959 by Mike and Marian Ilitch, who also control a sports and entertainment empire through Ilitch Holdings.
