The Little Caesars U.S. Development team was grateful for the opportunity to serve 300 pizzas to thousands of members of the Michigan Air National Guard’s 127th Wing and their families at Selfridge Air National Guard Base on Saturday, September 11. Little Caesars Fundraising also donated over 1,500 Pizza Kits for attendees to take home. The serving and donation were part of the 127th Wing’s annual family event, which was especially meaningful this year as it coincided with the 20th anniversary of the September 11 attacks.
“Little Caesars is honored to give back to those who have given so much to serve our country,” said Craig Sherwood, vice president of U.S. Development at Little Caesars. “As a military veteran, I know how important it is to spend time with family, and we wanted to make this day a little extra special the best way we know how—by offering a wholesome meal that could be enjoyed together.”
Honoring military veterans has always been important to Little Caesars. Company founder Mike Ilitch proudly served with the United States Marine Corps during the Korean War. In 2006, he created the Little Caesars Veterans Programas a way to expand business opportunities for his fellow military veterans. Through the program, honorably discharged veterans and Gold Star families receive financial assistance and other incentives to open a Little Caesars franchise of their own.
