Little Caesars expands to Central and South America


Detroit, MI – Little Caesars Pizza has announced expansion plans for Central and South America.

The chain, which opened its first restaurant in Chile earlier this year, will open two restaurants in Nicaragua and one in Peru. The restaurants will begin operations during the first week of December in both countries, with a second Nicaraguan restaurant scheduled to open in January 2018, the company said in a news release.

“Little Caesars commitment to quality and value are propelling our brand’s growth throughout the world,” said Paula Vissing, senior vice-president, International, for Little Caesars Pizza. The brand now operates on five continents including North America, Asia, Australia, Europe and South America, Vissing said.

Corporación de Alimentos Coralsa de Nicaragua will head up both restaurants in Nicaragua and will be under the management of a longtime Little Caesars franchisee that also operates chain locations in Guatemala and El Salvador. The new restaurant in the metropolitan area of Lima, Peru, will be controlled by Operadora LCPM S.A.C.
