Detroit — Little Caesars, the third largest pizza chain in the world, has signed franchise development agreements that will add 15 new locations across two of the brand’s target markets. Led by two different franchisees, the developments are set to expand the brand’s presence in Boston and Chicago.
The franchisees leading the brand’s latest developments include:
• Pritpal Bains and Haranchal Bains, who have operated Little Caesars restaurants in California since 1999, plan to establish five new locations throughout Boston by 2027.
• Karim Khowaja and Sanjeev Khatau, who have more than 40 years of combined experience in restaurant franchising, are acquiring two existing Little Caesars locations in Chicago. They plan to open 10 additional restaurants in the city. The pair operates nearly 100 quick-service concepts in Illinois, Michigan, Iowa and California.
“As our expansion gains momentum nationwide, we are eager to build upon our partnerships with experienced multi-unit operators like Pritpal and Haranchal while developing new relationships with industry veterans like Karim and Sanjeev,” says Jeremy Vitaro, chief development officer of Little Caesars. “I’m confident in their enthusiasm for Little Caesars and their passion for their respective communities in Boston and Chicago. We look forward to supporting each group as they build their new restaurants.”
Little Caesars is amplifying its expansion into major cities, including its recent commitment to establish 100 new locations in New York City and the Tri-State region.
Little Caesars offers franchisees a convenience-driven business model and an efficient, proven concept that keeps operating costs low and margins high. For more information, visit www.franchise.littlecaesars.com.
