In The Beginning
Mike and Marian Ilitch opened their first Little Caesars restaurant in Garden City, Michigan more than 50 years ago. Mike Ilitch had been on another career path as a shortstop in the Detroit Tigers farm system. However, an injury caused Mike to swap his baseball glove for hot pads. It was an exciting time for Mike and Marian as they welcomed their own version of Opening Day on May 8, 1959.
Innovation has been the key to Little Caesars' success. Mike pioneered the two-for-one pizza deal--known as Pizza!Pizza!®--and created a conveyor oven specially designed for pizza, to keep up with customer demand.
Once a pizza shop in the suburbs of Detroit, now Little Caesars has grown into an international pizza chain. Due to Mike and Marian's desire for growth, and their interest in helping others realize their own dreams through franchising, today, Little Caesars is the largest carry out pizza chain in the world.
We look forward to seeing you soon in Grand Rapids, MI!
