- Leading American pizza chain seeks qualified investors to bring Little Caesars to additional markets throughout Spain
Little Caesars® Pizza, the world’s third largest pizza chain, is continuing its growth throughout Spain with a flagship store next to Madrid’s iconic Plaza Mayor. Located at C. Mayor, 36, the two-story restaurant features an outdoor terrace and a dining area on the second floor. This flagship location is the ninth Little Caesars Pizza restaurant to open in Spain and demonstrates the brand’s commitment to expanding across the country.
“Our newest location in Plaza Mayor represents a major growth milestone for Little Caesars Pizza in Spain,” said Carlos Vidal, vice president of international development at Little Caesars Pizza. “Spain is an important market for us, especially as we grow our brand throughout Europe, having just opened our first stores in Portugal and the United Kingdom. We look forward to bringing our distinguished value, quality and convenience to even more consumers in Spain and Europe.”
Little Caesars Pizza’s steadfast commitment to innovation and value help drive consumer interest in Spain and in other markets around the world. The chain’s signature HOT-N-READY® concept—which gives customers the easy and quick option to simply stop in and take away a freshly made, piping-hot, large pizza and side items without waiting or ordering ahead—revolutionized the global pizza industry when it was introduced nearly 20 years ago.
Not only are the products made with fresh, natural ingredients, but they are sold at an all-day value every day, providing an excellent meal option for families and individuals. For example, in its Madrid and Barcelona restaurants, Little Caesars Pizza currently offers its popular HOT-N-READY® Pepperoni and Margherita pizzas for just 6,90 € and 6 €, respectively.
With six restaurants in Madrid and three in Barcelona, Little Caesars Pizza is seeking experienced area developers to bring the well-known pizza brand with a 64-year legacy to additional Spanish markets, including Andalucía in the south and Valencia in the east, among others. Preferred candidates have a minimum of $1.5 million in liquid assets and $2,500,000 in net worth and possess the drive and expertise to build 20 or more stores over a five-year span.
“The QSR pizza industry in Spain is currently valued at $1.2 billion and is expected to grow 4.3% over the next five years1,” said Vidal. “We see a tremendous growth opportunity for our brand throughout the country, especially with Spaniards’ increasing demand for pizza. We’re looking for qualified entrepreneurs to introduce our fresh, great-tasting pizza and strong value and convenience to new markets in Spain.”
