A look back when Little Caesar’s Pizza with Seafood was sold out

As someone who has always lived in Michigan, I’ve always had a hard time talking about my favorite pizza. I feel that once I moved to Kalamazoo, this decision became more difficult because it seemed to me that a new world of local pizza places was finally exposed to me. Bilbo’s, Curly’s, and Pizza Katerina are just some of Southwest Michigan’s great locally owned pizza companies. There is so much on the list that it would be overwhelming.

But there are also some major chains that started in Michigan like Jets Pizza, Little Caesars and Hungry Howie’s and it has always been a tough call between these three. Each of them is good in its own right, but there is one thing about one of these places that really sets them apart from the rest. At least get used to…

I’m pretty young for this, which is why I’m totally wary, but Little Caesars had a full menu, it even had spaghetti, shrimp, fish and chicken. Can you imagine if they had this now? They will run a lot of places for their money. Check out this old image here to view a window with a description of what was available:

In 1959, Mike and Marian Ilitch opened their All-Little Caesars—which also included spaghetti, shrimp, chicken, and fish—in a mall at 32594 Cherry Hill Road, in Garden City, Michigan (a suburb of Detroit). Mike wanted to call it “cheap pizza,” but the suggestion for “Little Caesars Pizza Treat” won as the first name. The company is best known for its advertising slogan, “Pizza! Pizza!” , which was introduced in 1979. This phrase refers to offering two pizzas at the same price as one of the competitors.

I think the main thing to take away from this is that there has been a lot of focus on the hot and ready pizza they serve. I think that’s where the majority of the focus now lies, so I highly doubt they’d ever return anything like that. Either way, it’s interesting to know that at one point the menu looked more like an Italian restaurant. But after naming the arena after them, I think they are doing just as well as they are now.
