From “Pizza! Pizza!”™ to Hot-N-Ready, innovation has been fundamental to the growth and success of Little Caesars for the past 60 years. And since Anita Klopfenstein joined the company as Chief Information Officer in 2017, she has continued that legacy by creating a best-in-class IT team and implementing industry-leading technology that drives the business forward.
Under her leadership, Anita has helped develop technology solutions that has digitally transformed Little Caesars into a carryout and delivery company. This includes online ordering and delivery through the Little Caesars app, as well as contactless order pickup through Pizza Portal, the first self-service mobile order pickup station in the quick service restaurant industry. These innovations help ensure even greater convenience, quality and value to Little Caesars customers.
Anita has also built partnerships with leading technology companies like Cisco, Google, World Wide Technology and Microsoft, as well as grown a world-class IT team with top recruits from around the globe.
Recognizing Anita’s vast experience, ingenuity and strength as a leader, Industry Era Magazine recently named Anita as one of the “10 Best CIOs of 2020.” With Anita on board, Little Caesars is poised to remain an innovative leader in the food service industry.
