Little Caesars - The Rise and Fall...And Rise Again

  • Published on Nov 28, 2018
  • Little Caesars is traditionally one of the four largest pizza chains and in my opinion, they do a good job in separating themselves from the others. They're the cheapest AND the fastest, which is especially important for a fast food chain. But from the early 1990's to the mid 2000's, they had some major troubles. This video profiles their rise to popularity, their decline during those years, and how they brought it all back.

    Not the best pizza I had ever eaten, but for the price it isn't too bad. Personally, I prefer Buddy's.

    Whenever my family decides to get pizza, they go for Little Ceasars mainly for the reasons you brought up. It's fast, nearby, and cheap. If I had to choose between Little Caesars and Dominos, I'd finish a box of Domino's pizza before you could finish that sentence. I do like Little Caesars, but it's not the quality pizza I'd eat every time, despite my family getting it all the time.

    More like the rise and fall to Pizza Hut!

    Ok Pizza Hut what have you done? You used to be the best pizza I ever ate!!! I mean like back then when I was like from 9-10 It was all doughy,cheesy,and good! There breadsticks weren’t burned and that was awesome!!!! But now as 11 they gave up. I ordered the cheesy bites pizza. WOW!!!! IT LOOKED LIKE NOTHING IN THE COMMERCIAL. Not enough cheesy bites,the crust was big but the slice was thin,and the breadsticks are burnt!! The only thing they make right when I go there is the mozzarella sticks like wtf pizza hur

    Wow I worked there for a short time after high school. The quality of ingredient is pitiful. Rarely ate when I worked there and never have since...

  • JackieFuckingChan

    Their sauce tastes like Ketchup. Fucking disgusting. I do like the cheese and bread sticks, but they gotta change the sauce.

    The highest quality pizza, here in Canada, is a franchise called Boston Pizza. This place uses fresh, high-quality ingredients in traditional and unique ways.

    Little Caesar’s in my opinion doesn’t taste good, it tastes dry and I can’t taste the cheese at all, the crust is very greasy.... yes it’s good for the price but in my opinion the quality is low, I also got severe food poisoning and almost died after eating little caesars one night... I went to the hospital and I was pooping blood, it wasn’t fun, I almost died.... in my opinion I’ll pay for quality rather than quality.

    I distinctly remember not liking Little Caesars. Something about the pizza crust. It's been so long since then, but the memory is still there.

    I don’t really like the taste of Little Ceasars, I’d rather get Pizza Hut or Dominos, even Papa Johns if those aren’t available.

    I don’t know anybody who flat out hates little caesars. their best argument is “their pizza is like cardboard” and I say gimme whatever cardboard you’re eating. also, it’s $5, stfu and eat the pocket change pizza

    It's probably just the nostalgia talking, but I like Little Caesar's pizza. And don't get me started on the Crazy Bread and Crazy Sauce. (Although it doesn't taste quite the same as 25-30 years ago.)
    I'll definitely eat Little Caesar's before Papa John's and Domino's and sometimes Pizza Hut.
    That said, the national chains are all garbage compared to some of the local pizza spots in my town.

    honestly even though little caesar uses lower quality ingredients than it's competition, it's the only pizza out of the four big chains that sits well on my stomach.

    The lack of marketing had an effect during that time period. I had forgotten all about them completely until watching tv and seeing an add again in like 2013. The $5 dollar pizza thing.

  • PetrifEye

    Little Caesar's was my first job, back in 1995. An interesting little nugget of info: That "Hot N' Ready" thing that they've become famous for came from a special they used to do every year. It was called "The crazy days of summer" and they would do $5 large pepp and cheese pizzas for a limited time. This ended up being a massive hit. We would be slam busy, with people lined up out the door. We were selling pizzas faster than we could make them. They eventually dropped that promotion for whatever reason, and it would resurface years later as their token "Hot N' Ready" special.

    A long time ago we had a Tim Hortons. They shut it down and fired everyone out of the blue one day. Then it became a Little Ceasers
    But the real question is
    What am I supposed to do with all these Tim Hortons gift cards?

    Flavor wise (specifically the dough), I prefer Little Caesars than the rest of the fast food pizza places.

    That thick crust. The square one. That was their best move since the pizza pizza thing. I had reach the point of when my grandpa brought me one of their round pizzas. I had absolutely NO appreciation. Other than thanks for thinking of me. But with that deep dish, you have revitalized my hope in Little Caesars.

    Hungry Howies blows them all away. Local pizzerias are also more appealing. Dominoes is gross. Papa Johns is a racists.

    They fill that need in the market for inexpensive and attainable, consistently popular food. Everyone who has been broke has relied on Little Caesars. Every family with kids and slumber parties, knows Little Caesars. It's usually exactly what you expect and it's cheap!

    I think that one thing that should have been touched on is their business model called, "Hub and Spoke". I am pretty sure that the Hot n Ready pizzas are a loss leader and they bank on the fact that you will buy a soda or crazy bread or wings with the pizza. I don't know if this is right, but it is something I have heard a few different times.

  • Aaron Clark

    Ya'll keep talking about the 5$ Little Caesars pizza. Just get the BESTEST Pepperoni. It's way better for 1$ More. Their BESTEST Stuff Crust is better than Pizza Huts too because they actually use more pizza dough instead of stretching the same amount of dough.

  • Post-Modern Czechoslovakian War Factory

    It's great pizza for the price. I'm surprised they can still sell it at $5 for a pie, especially with all that advertising money. I know they used to have ads, but I thought they stopped, and continued on name recognition just like Arizona 99 cent Iced Tea.
    Though I must say Pizza Hut is no longer the way to go for a quality pizza. (It used to be.)
    Now your best choice for a quality pizza regardless of how much it costs is to go with a Mom and Pop's pizza shop.
