Little Caesars’ start up costs are very competitive and fees associated with franchising the brand are modest. We require candidates desiring to open one store to have a net worth of $150,000 with a minimum of $50,000 in liquid, unencumbered assets (like cash). Franchisees must also be able to obtain financing to cover the total costs of opening a franchised location.
The estimated initial investment required per franchise location ranges from approximately $221,000 to $654,000 for a standard Little Caesars carry-out location. Stores in the higher end of the range are typically free-standing buildings, not more traditional strip center locations. Of course, costs vary based on a variety of factors. Please see Item 7 of our Franchise Disclosure Document for additional information, including our assumptions.
Little Caesars has a long history of giving back to the communities where we do business, and where there is a need. The Little Caesars Love Kitchen and the Little Caesars Veterans Program are reflections of that business philosophy.
The Little Caesars Love Kitchen was established in 1985 to provide quality meals to people in need. The big-rig pizza kitchen travels across the United States and Canada, meeting the needs of the hungry, the homeless and disaster survivors. The Little Caesars Love Kitchen has fed more than two million people in 48 states and four Canadian provinces.
Also exemplifying our strong tradition of giving back is the Little Caesars Veterans Program. The program provides qualified, honorably discharged veterans with a business opportunity to become a Little Caesars franchisee when they transition to civilian life or seek a career change.
