Little Caesars, the global, family-owned pizza chain with franchise and company-owned stores in each of the 50 U.S. states and in 27 countries and territories, is looking to grow its Pacific Northwest presence with a goal of awarding more than 50 new franchise units across Portland and Seattle by 2026.
“We know the Pacific Northwest is ripe with aspiring entrepreneurs who value technology and innovation,” says 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.”
With more than 120 Little Caesars locations currently open and operating across the Pacific Northwest, the brand 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.
The launch of this development initiative comes just as key executives from the Little Caesars franchise development team will be exhibiting and in attendance at the The Franchise Show occurring May 1–2 in Seattle at the Greater Tacoma Convention Center. While at the expo, the brand looks forward to discussing franchise opportunities to interested prospects.
“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,” says 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.’”
