Pizza Pizza! Little Caesars delivering new world headquarters to Detroit
DETROIT — Little Caesars and Olympia Development of Michigan have started construction on a new $150 million, nine-story, 234,000 square foot, Little Caesars world headquarters expansion in downtown Detroit. The center features a first-of-its-kind façade and more than double the size of the current Little Caesars Detroit campus to accommodate the company’s rapid global growth and hiring.
Construction of the new Little Caesars Global Resource Center will be another boost to Detroit’s impressive comeback story, the company says. “We’re thrilled to reach the next step in the development of a building that will be an integral part of The District Detroit and the city’s revitalization,” said David Scrivano, President and CEO of Little Caesars. “As we continue our explosive global expansion, we’re proud to build an exceptional workplace right in the heart of the city that helped make Little Caesars one of the world’s largest pizza chains.”
The Little Caesars Global Resource Center will have an impressive formed-glass exterior. Each 14-foot tall, pizza slice shape of formed-glass pays homage to the company’s signature product. The distinct shape of glass, in combination with the height of each formed-glass unit, makes the building façade the first of its kind in the world. The innovative building design matches the company’s personality, which has long been regarded as an industry innovator.
Christopher Ilitch, President/CEO of Ilitch Holdings, Inc. said, “This remarkable building, with its one-of-a-kind architecture, will be a shining example of what’s possible in our city. Today’s groundbreaking represents the next chapter of global growth for an iconic Detroit brand, founded by my parents, Mike and Marian Ilitch, in 1959 with a single store. My hope is that our growth, commitment and continued investment in our community and its people will serve as a catalyst for others to call Detroit and Michigan their home.”
This state-of-the-art headquarters campus will create a collaborative workspace that will help the company continue to attract, train and retain the top talent and franchisees needed to continue its rapid growth and better serve customers around the world, company officials said. The new space will provide the most modern infrastructure and technologies, and world-class amenities to foster collaboration, innovation and connectivity.
