Little Caesars pursues Buffalo expansion, targeting 11 stores by 2023

Little Caesars is looking to offer a slice of its franchise business to Buffalo, NY entrepreneurs with the goal of opening at least 11 new stores in the coming years. The global, family-owned pizza chain aims to secure this expansion by signing three multi-unit franchise agreements by 2023.

“Demand for our brand is strong in Buffalo, and we’re aiming to give consumers and entrepreneurs more of what they want,” said Craig Sherwood, Vice President of US Development. “Buffalo has a flourishing entrepreneurial community, and it’s also a city that knows its food, and we are eager to grow our footprint there.”

With four franchise locations currently open and operating in the area, Little Caesars is building momentum to expand, currently seeking both single-unit and multi-unit investors looking to grow their business endeavors.
