The third-largest pizza chain is ready for a war

How Little Caesars is readying to fight amongst the big guys


Welcome to First Bite, a Nation’s Restaurant News podcast, your daily source of news from NRN hosted by Holly Petre.

Today, we’re talking about Little Caesars.

While Domino’s and Papa Johns often get the largest share of ‘pizza wars’ media analysis, Little Caesars is actually still firmly the third-largest pizza chain in the U.S. and has a lot of long-term development goals in the works. NRN spoke with Little Caesars chief development officer Jeremy Vitaro, who joined the team last year, about the company’s progress in technology innovation, and menu and marketing development. He particularly thinks the company has a real opportunity during these times of economic uncertainty as a more affordable option.

Hear more about what he had to say in a conversation with Joanna Fantozzi and her thoughts on the matter ahead.
