This is D'Mello's second Little Caesars store; he also operates one in Newark, Delaware. Before becoming a Little Caesars franchisee, D'Mello was a shift manager with another quick-service restaurant chain. While there, he was promoted within three years to district leader where he overlooked the operations of three franchisee-owned stores.
"After working for a franchisee, I realized that instead of doing the work for someone else, I could be my own boss," says D'Mello. "I plan to expand the Little Caesars brand in the Philadelphia area by opening three additional stores over the next two years."
"Little Caesars is growing across the country and is well-known for its great value, quick service, and tremendous appeal to families," says David Gray, national vice president, franchise services, Little Caesar Enterprises Inc. "We look forward to serving the residents of Yeadon with delicious Little Caesars pizza and other great tasting products." Giving back to the communities in which Little Caesars does business has been part of the company's philosophy since shortly after the franchise began in 1959. As a new business owner, D'Mello plans to support local organizations and community events in Yeadon and the surrounding area. "The community has been excited about our store opening," says D'Mello. "I look forward to getting involved and supporting efforts that are important to the community."
